The Baicells EPC is an all in one network product which conformed to 3GPP standard. It coordinates with the LTE base station, processes packet service rapidly, and provides the high-quality of mobile broad band services, which meet the demands of users for better bandwidth and service quality.
The Baicells EPC is designed for virtualized environments. It is organized in independent modules of Control Plane and User Plane. Each module of Baicells EPC can be deployed on any X86_64 platform of Linux system, such as common rack server, public cloud virtual machine and Industrial Personal Computer.
As deployment is very flexible, there are two typical structures of Baicells EPC solution as below:
HaloB (Distributed EPC)
Baicells designs an innovative structure of EPC: distributed EPC Control Plane is integrated into base station, customers will no longer worry about the effect of backhaul latency on signaling. The User Plane could either be deployed in the base station or independently. The distributed User Plane can complete the forwarding of common data services, while the independent User Plane will provide all the features as traditional EPC. Customers can flexibly chose the way of EPC deployment according to their requirements, and even chose both ways based on different business type.
Baicells deploys the Control Plane of EPC on Public Cloud platform, and integrates distributed User Plane inside the base station, then whole Baicells Cloud EPC plays the role of Software as a Service (SaaS). Base station could have access to Cloud EPC at any location of the world through Internet, all the data on User Plane will be offloaded directly from the base station. This will give customer a lower latency on Internet access and will cost down the back haul a lot.
Baicells provides Local OMC and OMC on Cloud, both with redundancy back-up, ensuring high-availability and high reliability, offering management functions, such as: basic device configuration, upgrade, monitoring, etc.
Monitor legacy network to see whether there is something abnormal, the alarm is triggered in time when it is abnormal, support email notice and APP notice, save time that engineers’ trouble shooting
Query equipment's history performance data, provide report function, and show daily/weekly/monthly performance history.
● Plug and play
For online equipment connected to OMC, automatically recognize and register, upgrade software and configure according to scenarios.
In August 2016, OMC on Cloud opens to WISP in North America. Now there are more than 1000 registered WISP on Cloud OMC, where more than 10 thousands commercial & registered devices are steadily running.
