NEC Corporation announced today that its new Compact EPC system will be on display at LTE Forum 2009. An all-in-one core network system, it qualifies for the world's smallest class by incorporating MME and Serving-GW/PDN-GW into an area measuring 483mm(L)x222mm(H)x497mm(D) that fits within the 5U-height of a standard 19-inch rack.
Each compact system is capable of simultaneously accommodating nearly 300,000 subscribers while controlling more than 1,000 LTE base stations. All functions are loaded into compact, blade integrated AdvancedTCA(R), chassis. This provides the operator with a flexible and reliable way of moving to 4G.
