Sonus IQ for Mobile Network Operators

Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are in the midst of a technology transformation as fixed, cable and wireless networks converge, and at the same time 4G/Long-Term Evolution (LTE) technology promises exciting multimedia services previously only imagined. This shift enables MNOs to compete with Over-The-Top (OTT) providers creating new business models as they deliver an improved user experience with innovative new services. The Sonus IQ architecture leverages Sonus’ current product set to enable MNOs to move to a secure, intelligent, real-time communications network with the ability to provision voice, video and IP services quickly and securely.

  • Well-designed policy and analytics engines can help VoLTE networks run more efficiently while still maintaining Service Level agreements (SLAs), thereby reducing capital expenditures and maximizing operating resources.
  • Advanced Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies enable MNOs to differentiate between internal best effort traffic and latency sensitive real-time communications traffic, thus improving VoLTE network utilization for voice, video and Unified Communications (UC). Building a smarter VoLTE network results in operational expense (OpEx) savings.
  • Network security allows sessions to be encrypted allowing MNOs to provide differentiated services to their users

Sonus IQ is a service delivery architecture comprised of Sonus products that together form a service delivery platform for a MNO. Sonus IQ provides network security as well as real-time network resource allocation which allows MNOs to provide tiered offers. Here are a few examples:

  • Sonus' VellOS® optimizes circuit utilization - mitigating unnecessary and costly overprovisioning and changing the way capacity planning is addressed 
  • Utilizing Sonus virtual SBCs and PSX applications, MNOs can use intelligent policy on a session by session basis depending on the real-time application (voice, video, IM) being used.
  • Sonus SBCs and Diameter products provide reliable security for the network edge as well as scalability as LTE networks expand
