Helsinki, Finland, May 29, 2018. Tieto announced that ASPIDER-NGI is using Tieto network solutions to extend their operator interconnects. ASPIDER-NGI is a provider of independent mobile solutions for managing IoT connectivity.
ASPIDER-NGI delivers and supports voice, data, SMS, multi-IMSI and eSIM products to manage billions of connections. To increase versatility, operators require better 2G and 3G networks to allow better coexistence with 4G and 5G networks. ASPIDER-NGI is therefore extending its core technology to better support old and new generation networks.
Tieto Smart Signalling
By deploying the Tieto smart signaling products, ASPIDER-NGI is able to support a wider range of operators and their various network technologies and transformation from 2G to 5G. The solution also allows ASPIDER-NGI more seamless migration between its existing SS7, SIGTRAN and Diameter infrastructure. The solution is designed to serve various operators’ technology needs and future-proof investments.
“Our IoT business requires that we have the economies of scale to support our clients’ growth independent of the underlying interconnects.” says Jan Mooijman, CEO ASPIDER-NGI. “With Tieto, we can take advantage of the latest technologies and deploy across our global data centers.”
“Despite heavy investments in and focusing on 4G and 5G, 2G and 3G are still the backbone of many operator networks. This means that legacy network technologies need to coexist with the newer generations. Furthermore, the industry demands better interworking between fixed and mobile networks.” says Jörgen Trank, Lead Product Manager, Product Development Services, Tieto. ”We enable the full utilization of network technologies to give operators the best services possible. Our extensive experience is an enabler for future-proof support for everything an operator needs.”
“This is much more than just virtualized addition to our core.” commented Tony Craven, CIO at ASPIDER-NGI. “Tieto provides us more flexibility and security so that our clients can migrate easier between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G. Our clients want to take advantage of multiple interconnects, and migrate on their own schedule often on a country by country basis. And they want control that is independent of the underlying network.”
“Infradata has extensive knowledge of mobile network technology and assisted ASPIDER-NGI with the search for the best solution that fits the ASPIDER-NGI needs.” says Robbie van Rooijen, Infradata. “We also helped with the rollout of the project to support interoperability requirements.”
