Wireless Telecom Software Development

Change is the only constant in the wireless industry as demand for data usage is growing and end user wants faster and faster bandwidth. 3GPP technologies have evolved rapidly in the last few years:

  • General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) -2.5G- offered speeds up to 114 Kbps in 2000.
  • Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) -2.5G- reached up to 384 Kbps in 2003.
  • UMTS Wideband CDMA (WCDMA) -3G- offered downlink speeds up to 1.92 Mbps.
  • High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) boosted the downlink to 14Mbps.
  • LTE Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA) is aiming for 100 Mbps.

While technologies are evolving and posing newer challenges they offer great opportunity as well for all. This is where iQuent can help the OEMs, Device Manufacturers(DMs) and Communication Service Providers(CSPs) in different ways in designing, developing, testing, sustenance and management of carrier- and enterprise-grade communications devices and infrastructure.

iQuent has very strong experience in a broad range of wireless technologies ranging from 2G to 4G. With a vast wireless expertise iQuent not only has the potential to design, develop, support and maintain wireless Systems but also design and develop fixed wireless e.g. WiMAX, WiFi (WiMax has been more popular as fixed wireless broadband service and as backhaul link to WiFi Deployments) based systems.

iQuent's experienced staff has rich experience in both, data and control path, designs and have worked with OEMs, DMs and CSPs to deliver solutions for comprehensive array of services in devices, access networks, core networks, gateways for pico, femto, micro & macro cells.

iQuent can deliver high availability (HA) and distributed solutions on Server, MicroTCA and ATCA based platforms depending upon the business needs of our clients.

Wireline Telecom Software Development

Experts are predicting that despite an explosion in wireless networks and services, wireline networks will continue to have high share of the world's communications traffic. As traffic is increasing, data requirements are increasing manifolds and making networks to carry heavier loads. This implies greater needs for deployment of new infrastructure so that service provider customers can continue to evolve services.

With iQuent you can co-create solutions for Layer 2/3 switching, border controllers and application & home gateways and VPNs and interconnect functions.

Broadband Access (wired) is also currently in demand with service providers laying infrastructure in rural and remote areas to enhance reach and also looking to provide new generation social, healthcare, education and as well as entertainment services. Clients of iQuent can greatly benefit by its high skilled and experienced resources in broadband and wireline technology domains.

iQuent offers software development, testing and sustenance services in this domain. Our areas of expertise are:

Carrier / Metro Ethernet Solution

  • Metro Ethernet has rapidly emerged as the technology of choice to address challenges posed by triple play services by providing powerful LAN connectivity using the Ethernet protocol and optical fiber.
  • Carrier Grade Functions: Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), LDP, RSVP/TE
