Extends the existing HP subscriber data management architecture at H3G Austria
Communications service provider (CSP) Hutchison 3G (H3G) Austria has deployed HP Home Subscriber Server (HSS) as the core of a new, long-term evolution (LTE) network that will bring much faster speeds and a better mobile internet experience to its 1.2m customers.
The HP HSS extends the existing HP subscriber data management architecture at H3G Austria, which includes the HP Home Location Register (HLR) and HP Profile Manager/User Data Repository.
The HP HSS is the primary repository of information on all customers, including their personal profiles and the mobile services they use and will help the CSP manage network usage by controlling access, authentication and authorisation for every user on the network.
Under the LTE project, HP provides H3G Austria with additional offerings which include: intelligent network services on the same service platform; HP AAA (authentication, authorization and accounting) to streamline service provisioning; HP Internet Usage Manager for improved session management; HP BSS (business support systems) for better fraud management and revenue assurance; and HP Integration services for inter-carrier billing, mediation and order management.
Using HP NonStop server technology, the HP HSS is colocated with the HP HLR, so subscriber data is managed as a single logical record.
HP Communications and Media Solutions vice-president and general manager David Sliter said H3G Austria is able to transition from 3G to LTE smoothly and cost-effectively with the HP HSS.
"Working closely with H3G, HP deployed a disaster-tolerant, consolidated subscriber data management platform that uses existing hardware, software and integrations to reduce cost and speed time to market," said Sliter.
