Available to all new users and as an upgrade to users in support, AttoCore offers the latest release of its flagship AttoEPC software. AttoEPC is an Enhanced Packet Core (EPC) suitable for deployment in a wide range of specialist 4G applications at the Network Edge. Unlike typical legacy EPC products, it promises a simpler, easier to deploy, and flexible solution that can be cost effectively deployed in specialist networks for embedding in radios or for repurposing for enterprises or rural communities.
AttoEPC is a specialist 4G product, that does not bundle any legacy 2G, 3G or circuit switching functionality. It is suited for embedding directly into the radio to create Network In A Box propositions for public safety and emergency service use and can cost-effectively address the Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and enterprise grade Private Networks facilitated by the deployment of radios in the CBRS band.
In addition to adding support for IPv6 and for operation on 64-bit ARM platforms, the latest release of software will expand the capabilities of AttoEPC, for Network In A Box and Fixed Wireless Access application, markets already served by AttoEPC.
Other features include a patented network mesh option where UEs maintain their IP addresses and locality of PGW during handover, optimizing network performance and reliability. This is supported by a locally-replicated HSS option enabling every eNodeB with the embedded AttoEPC to operate completely autonomously in times of network fragmentation while maintaining the benefits of centralized management.
