Hitachi Scales its MME/SGSN with Juniper's Contrail

Hitachi Communication Technologies America has integrated its massively scalable, virtual MME/SGSN as a virtualized network function (VNF) with Juniper Networks' Contrail SDN/NFV controller.

Juniper said its Contrail orchestration simplifies Hitachi CTA's MME/SGSN rollouts by independently scaling based on operator deployment requirements:

  • subscriber sessions - enabling the millions of new LTE and mobile to mobile (M2M) devices; and
  • transactions processing - managing the dramatic increase in 4G device transactions rates; and
  • radio access point connectivity - exceeding the fan-out required by the increasing deployment of small cells.

"Together, Hitachi CTA and Juniper Networks are able to create a single MME/SGSN VNF architected to scale well beyond 20 million simultaneously active subscribers," said Reg Wilcox, CEO of Hitachi CTA. "Juniper Networks Contrail provides a proven carrier-grade SDN architecture that enables us to meet the performance and scalability requirements of the largest mobile service providers in the world."

"Juniper Networks is pleased to be working with Hitachi CTA to deliver carrier-grade MME/SGSN VNF. As carriers automate and accelerate their mobile and cloud businesses, they are looking for open, interoperable solutions that excel in scale, resiliency and service delivery for their current and emerging opportunities," said Ankur Singla, vice president and general manager, Juniper Networks.

Technical and market trials with Hitachi CTA virtualized MME/SGSN solution are in progress.
