vEPC Core Engineering

Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) Expertise – To Power Your Core

Increasing traffic demand, always-on consumer behavior, and differentiated services for various use cases are going to drive the next transformation in telecom infrastructure. Network providers will have to bring in agility & flexibility within the network and lower their TCO at the same time. Virtualizing EPC can help network providers, operators, private LTE providers and network infrastructure providers bring down their TCO and end their dependency on expensive proprietary hardware & software.

GS Lab’s telecom unit helps MNOs, MVNOs, network slicing companies, startups, telecom infrastructure & Private LTE providers engineer their vEPCs with expertise across all core EPC components. Our product development capabilities, combined with the knowledge of 3GPP protocols, make us an ideal partner for the development of vEPCs. Leveraging our skills and industry collaborations, we have developed accelerators that can help reduce your testing and deployment timelines for your vEPCs. We are also a leading collaborating innovator for ONF’s OMEC project and Aether project.

3GPP Compliant ECP Core Modules

Engineering of MME, HSS, SGW, PGW, and PCRF – EPC core components compliant to 3GPP standards to support network services for 3G, 4G, and 5G

CUPS Engineering

CUPS architecture readiness, design and implementation services with Sxa/b protocol help organizations support increased data traffic and reduce latency period for their applications.

Testing, Automation and DevOps

Our expertise across 3GPP protocols and testing tools helps us deliver end-to-end compliance, performance tests and automate DevOps solutions for your EPC core components.

Distributed Architecture Design

Service-based or cloud-native based service architecture (distributed – user and plane separation) to support high bandwidth low latency applications.

Our Accelerators

Octopus – vEPC Compliance Tracker

Octopus is a complete & automated vEPC testing tool that reduces your vEPC testing time from days to minutes. It’s a comprehensive testing tool that works across various EPCs with different components and protocols.  It also helps you trace all the messages at each connection point.

OMECin-a-Box

OMEC-in-a-box is your all in one vEPC sandbox designed to accelerate ONF’s OMEC deployment and testing across any infrastructure (Cloud, Virtual or Bare metal). It is a single click easy to deploy, open-sourced sandbox that can be easily extended to any private vEPCs.
