Blueslice Expands its Home Subscriber Server (HSS) Portfolio

Montreal-based Blueslice Networks introduced a compact version of its Home Subscriber Server platform. The new HSS 1000 product offering, offers all the technical benefits and capabilities of existing HSS 3000 counterpart but is designed for smaller, cost-constrained deployments.

The Home Subscriber Server (HSS) is the central subscriber database in IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks. The Blueslice's HSS 3000 provides control and intelligence within mobile and fixed networks and the management of multiple profiles per subscription.

Blueslice has integrated its HLR and HSS with its ngHLR, SIP-AS, and AAA server. This allows each component to be enabled on the same platform via a simple software license and resolves the issue of migrating subscriber information from legacy HLR to new HSS environments. The Blueslice Home Subscriber Server is compliant to 3GPP IMS specifications, fixed TISPAN specifications, and PCMM for cable devices.
