See You in Barcelona

OpenBTS is the only open source implementation of the 3GPP GSM/GPRS and UMTS radio access network (RAN). Yate's SS7 stack is the only open source core network solution certified by Deutsche Telekom's test lab. That's a powerful combination and that's why Range Networks and SS7Ware (the new US office of Null Team) have started a development partnership to provide full cellular networks based on their products.

One exciting result of this US-European collaboration is a unified SIP-based network that supports 2.5G GSM/GPRS, 3G UMTS and 4G LTE RANs all on the same core, simplifying the network architecture and providing a higher return on investment. The Range-SS7Ware open source approach also answers concerns over the security of RAN and core network systems by allowing network operators to inspect the source code of their network software. This combination of open standards and open source gives operators tremendous flexibility in the development of new services and represents a new vision in the deployment of cellular networks.

Range and SS7Ware will be in Barcelona together later this month for the Mobile World Congress. If you would like to meet with them please contact
