Cloud-native Telecommunications Networks (CNTN) Technical Office is a leading team in the area of future and emerging mobile network technologies in the country.
Leveraging on emerging Telco Cloud platform covering technologies such as Software-defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), SD-WAN and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), our office offers customer-centric cloud-native solutions which helps Communication Service Providers (CSPs), Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Enterprises in the transition to the next generation telecom virtualized network infrastructures.
Being at the forefront of technology trends around cloud-oriented networks, our mission is to provide innovative solutions to clients helping them adopt modern network technologies such SDN, SD-WAN and Lifecycle Service Orchestration and Management within ever-changing environment.
We are conducting pioneer projects on the deployment and verifications of 5G mobile Core and RAN network functionalities using an end-to-end LTE/5G development and test platform to provide novel service-driven solutions for our customers, among others, contributing to provide a road-map on migration from legacy to SDN/NFV-based networks for Mobile Communication Company Iran (MCCI) as the first and largest national mobile network operator in the country.
CNTN Service Platform is a comprehensive network orchestration and service delivery software platform that automates service provisioning, simplifies network management and facilitates the smooth transition to service-oriented infrastructure. The platform leverages the synergy of SDN/NFV, Lifecycle Service Orchestration, open protocols and APIs.
With a deep insight into markets and interest of CSPs we conduct service level technical consultancies and analysis supporting future network design by taking the requirements of customer-specific use cases into account.
Moreover, we design and implement Proof-of-Concept (PoC) demonstrations which can well serve to test incremental steps in complete system environments. They can be used for prototyping, development and verifying novel algorithms and evaluating new technologies and standards at the earliest point of time before any deployment, e.g. development of MCCI’s Demo at 18th and 19th International Exhibition of Telecommunications in Tehran 2017/2018.
