NTT DOCOMO Implements Stoke Mobile Broadband Gateway for LTE

NTT DOCOMO has selected Stoke's mobile broadband gateway for its LTE service. Specifically, DOCOMO will deploy the SSX-3000 in this LTE network to aggregate eNodeB radio transmission base stations that support various mobile data such as voice, data, and video.


Functional verification of the Stoke SSX-3000 as well as its proposal and sale to DOCOMO was handled by Net One Systems, Stoke's distributor in Japan.


Stoke's SSX-3000, via Net One Systems, is already used as a network platform for DOCOMO's femtocell service.


"We are extremely pleased to extend our relationship with DOCOMO for their LTE network with the adoption of SSX-3000," said Vikash Varma, President and CEO of Stoke. "The selection of our technology for their mobile data platform provides validation of the need for the innovative technology offered by Stoke."


Stokes' SSX-3000 is a high density gateway ATCA-based platform designed to provide stateful management of tens of thousands of secure subscriber sessions over multiple access types. It scales to deliver 16 Gbps throughput and up to 240k active IPSec sessions. It performs L4-L7 traffic classification, encryption & decryption, policy enforcement, QoS and accounting at line rates.

  • In September 2009, Stoke released a software upgrade that enables its mobile broadband gateway to support initial 4G/LTE deployments, while enhancing the profit potential of their current 3G networks. Specifically, the new StokeOS software and SSX-3000 platform now address the requirements of high availability, reduced operational expense, high performance and end-to-end security in eNodeB aggregation.


  • The new features in StokeOS 4.5 support deployments of all-IP backhaul architectures and allow carriers to leverage lower-cost open IP transport networks at the earliest stages of 4G/LTE. Capabilities in this software version include intra-device resilience, redundancy within individual Stoke SSX-3000 devices to reduce cost, power, and overall footprint, and support both for femtocells and LTE eNodeB base stations.


  • Stoke is based in Santa Clara, California.
