• Disaggregated core for increased flexibility

    Disaggregation of hardware and software is passé. Disaggregation of the software will give both cost savings and ability to create new services in hours – not of weeks and months.

  • Low latency for Mobile Gaming

    Reduce latency for mobile gamers where it matters - in the mobile network by as much as 50% for mobile gaming, allowing MNOs and game providers to offer a premium real-time experience.

  • Proven track record for functionality

    Different components of the Tambora disaggregated core are deployed in networks across the world. The disaggregated components are used to create functionality ranging from PCEF to LBO.

  • gQoE Guaranteed Quality of Experience

    gQoE enables MNO to offer better and guaranteed QoE such as higher or consistent bandwidth, or lower delay. Our solution functions as 3GPP AF and interacts with the mobile network using 3GPP interfaces.

    With gQoE, MNOs offer more than data quota. New QoE-based services increase revenue by 1-8% with no CAPEX. This differentiator brings network slicing capability to 4G with no need to wait for 5G.

    QoE parameters for video, gaming and other applications are sensed from the mobile or network or content/ CDN servers. The feedback loop establishes dedicated bearer (4G) or QoS flow (5G).

    Up to 8% revenue increase for MNOs

  • vPCEF Virtual PCEF

    Our vPCEF solution functions as 3GPP TDF and PCEF. vPCEF runs either as VNF on VM or as image on container. It seamlessly interfaces with PCRF/OCS/OFCS/PGW (4G) and PCF/CHF/UPF (5G).

    vPCEF saves costs and offers greater flexibility to MNOs when compared with conventional PCEF. Signature addition, policy use cases and service chaining are configurable in real-time, without service disruption.

    vPCEF detects over 3,000 digital signatures. It performs policy functions of blocking, bandwidth control, priority scheduling, traffic redirection and traffic marking. Meters traffic based on volume or time or events.

  • Traffic Offload Local Breakout

    Tambora’s Local Breakout solution enables MNOs to offload traffic at the RAN, bypassing the core - on a per session basis. Mobile traffic is passed on to MEC platforms or the Internet.

    Our solution saves backhaul and mobile core costs of MNOs. Tambora’s advantage is the flexibility of deployment. It can be deployed at cell-site or CU location, or far-edge data center in case of a Section 7.2 SDN split.

    LBO is achieved by the Tambora disaggregated, distributed, virtual/ cloud-native core functioning as the PGW/SGW (4G) or UPF (5G). Full policy enforcement and charging is enabled for offloaded traffic.

  • State Machine Correlating data

    Tambora’s state machine correlates data with consent from the mobile network elements, in the control plane, such as HSS/OSS/BSS, delivering meta data for third party applications over standard API.

    This enables MNO to monetise their data. Applications include identity validation, location-based services and data-driven advertising. Tambora’s reference architecture and standard interfaces simplify data mining, analytics and presentation.

    The state machine gathers data through query and response. This data is correlated multi-dimensionally. The state change of data over time is also captured and analysed.

The latest stories from our blog

  • Optimising mobile gaming - moving from console to the mobile

    How can the cellular RAN support real-time gaming and drive new revenue opportunities for MNOs?

    Mobile gaming is backed by many to succeed and has attracted huge investment. But, it has a weak link – the Radio Access Network, or RAN. Here’s how to fix that problem!

  • What’s the real impact of network sharing on cost? Is it worth the fuss?

    Does network sharing deliver economic benefits? If it does, how can performance be managed to ensure equitable access and optimised service delivery for each stakeholder?

  • Rethinking RAN automation and optimisation – a work in progress

    According to a recent report, from analyst firm Rethink Technology Research, RAN automation – which is seen as crucial for supporting 5G business models – is grinding to a halt.

  • Mobile network operators are turning to gaming – how can they reduce mobile gaming latency?

    Operators such as Deutsche Telekom are rushing to capitalise on new revenue opportunities from gaming. They hope to bypass consoles and deliver effective gaming from the cloud. But with latency an ongoing challenge that can undermine user experience, how can they deliver a consistent experience to mobile gamers? Tambora solves this problem.

  • A World Cup of gaming? It’s just the beginning but low latency performance will be required to reach a truly global audience.

    The Fortnite World Cup took the gaming world by storm, offering unprecedented prizes to players from all around the globe. Expect more competitions to emerge and for global gaming to take off – but for mobile access to dominate. How do you deliver the real-time interactive experience gamers need?
