NewNet Mobile Communications Becomes One of the First HPE Telecom Solutions Partners to Achieve OpenNFV Partner Validation

Posted on: March 19th, 2019 by NewNet

NewNet’s VoWiFi, WebRTC and messaging platforms for communication service providers validated on HPE’s Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platform

Chicago, IL – NewNet Mobile Communications, a global leader in mobility technologies, announced today that its Krypton RCS, Lithium SMS and Mercury MMS voice, video and messaging solutions have been validated on the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) OpenNFV platform and Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade. NewNet is one of the first telecom solutions partner of HPE to achieve this validation.

Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade provides Communication Service Providers (CSP’s) with a hardware and software foundation that promotes deployment flexibility with enhanced scalability by removing the need to dedicate servers and other hardware to specific applications. Enhanced ability to proactively respond to dynamic subscriber requirements within a more cost effective infrastructure are primary NFV value points.

“MNO’s, MVNO’s and telecommunication service providers around the world are being challenged by demand for new services based on an IP infrastructure to stay ahead of the competition”, said Krishna Viswanadham, President of NewNet’s Mobile Communications division. “HPE OpenNFV validation provides CSP’s with verified confidence that NewNet’s voice, video and messaging platforms will deliver the infrastructural agility with scalability benefits expected in an NFV environment to more cost effectively attract and retain subscribers.”

NewNet Mobile Communication’s range of solutions were verified with HPE OpenNFV lab resources to ensure that voice, video and messaging workloads would perform with hardware independence, including management that ensures performance with no single point of failure. HPE Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade for NewNet solutions provides exceptional value for CSP’s to:

• Add new services such as NewNet’s Krypton RCS with VoWiFi to immediately extend network reach with subscriber cost savings, then extend new services such as WebRTC-based voice and video within a more cost effective virtualized server environment.
• Efficiently transition existing SMS subscribers to IP/LTE with NewNet’s Lithium IPSM gateway by taking advantage of HPE Lithium NFV to reliably maintain subscribers on circuit switched and IP networks with reduced capital expenditure for hardware and software.
• Virtualize MMSC functionality with NewNet’s Mercury MMS platform to preserve MMS service while reducing costs and footprint.

“HPE Helion OpenStack Carrier Grade verification for HPE partners deploying NFV solutions is designed to provide confidence for CSP’s,” said Werner Schaefer, VP Sales & GTM, Communications Solutions Business, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “NewNet Mobile Communications’ rapid commitment to open, scalable and reliable NFV solutions provides assurance that voice, video and messaging solutions based on a HPE NFV foundation will deliver enhanced agility and cost savings value.”

NewNet Partners with CALLUP and Neusoft to Address Growing Demand for VoWiFi and Enhanced Chat

Posted on: March 19th, 2019 by NewNet

NewNet integrates with Android client apps to provide cellular operators with a complete solution for new VoWiFi and enhanced Chat and SMS based on RCS

Chicago, IL – NewNet Communications Technologies, a global leader in mobility technologies, CALLUP, a provider of Value Added Services (VAS) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) for the telecom industry and Neusoft Mobile Solutions, a provider of IP communication client solutions, today announced a strategic partnership. Under the agreement, NewNet will integrate CALLUP’s Wi-Fi Calling and Neusoft ChatSMS rich communications clients into NewNet’s Krypton line of messaging products for video share, location share and chat via Wi-Fi hotspots. NewNet partners with these client vendors to offer the combined solution worldwide. The solution is currently deployed at Teleena in the Netherlands

Poor cellular phone coverage in buildings is one of the most critical problems for mobile communications today. CALLUP resolves this issue with an Android client that works with NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform to allow subscribers to take advantage of WiFi hotspot connectivity. An installed Android CALLUP app seamlessly intercepts voice call requests and routes them via the (home) Wi-Fi router to the carrier’s Krypton RCS-solution. Algorithms inspect IP quality and Wi-Fi signal performance prior to call initiation to ensure quality. In addition, calls placed to the handset are also attempted over Wi-Fi when the client is connected and registered, enabling IP-based quality and cost savings. Quality control algorithms again allow the call to be received over Wi-Fi or signal back to the network when it’s better to receive the call over the mobile network in poor Wi-Fi conditions.

“WI-FI calling empowers operators with the ability to directly enhance loyalty via a service that delivers improved voice and messaging quality plus cost savings to their subscribers” said Alon Roth, CALLUP’s CEO. “CALLUP’s integration with NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform also enables operators to provide a compelling alternative to OTT competitors while ensuring a seamless upgrade path when native RCS handsets becomes prevalent”.

The Neusoft ChatSMS client provides subscribers with an OTT like chat service app (chat-app) which also includes Video-Share, Location-Share and File-Share. Neusoft’s ChatSMS client in combination with the Krypton RCS platform provides a way for operators to deploy GSMA Association’s joyn℠ and also add RCS functionality to 3G/4G/LTE/WI-FI networks.

“Neusoft’s ChatSMS client in combination with the Krypton RCS platform and its SMS support makes this chat-app instantly able to communicate with 7 billion subscribers around the globe,” said Markus Jakobsson, Neusoft’s Sales and Product Manager. “Operators can step beyond OTT chat silo-ed alternatives with seamless bi-directional chat to SMS that subscribers will appreciate for its geographic reach and service independent mobility.”
In addition Neusoft has packaged its ChatSMS app for Android with a Service Ribbon which allows seamless use of enriched services during any mobile or VoWIFI call. The Service Ribbon displays three overlay buttons enriching the mobile or Wi-Fi call with video, chat or location capabilities.

“Innovative communication such as VoWiFi and next generation chat are clear examples of services that benefit subscribers and mobile operators,” said Jonathan Huberman, NewNet’s president and CEO. “NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform in partnership with smartphone client apps from CALLUP and Neusoft allow mobile operators to cost-effectively encourage subscriber loyalty, stand out from OTT competition, and increase bottomline success.”

NewNet’s Krypton IP communication platform is based on GSMA’s RCS 5.2 standard. Krypton allows operators to deploy VoIP and Video Calling, Video Sharing, Instant Messaging, Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) solutions, RCS Network API, Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Presence enabler, Common Message Store, Best Efforts Voice, VoLTE, Wi-Fi offload, and seamless IP to SMS integration functionality with or without an IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) core.
