Starent Networks is a leading provider of multimedia core technology that enables mobile operators to deliver mobile broadband to their subscribers. Our proven platforms and software solutions combine significant performance capabilities and system intelligence required by the worldâ€™s most demanding mobile networks.
We provide the multimedia core network functions and services to manage and control access from 2.5G, 3G, and 4G radio networks to a mobile operator’s packet core network. Our access-independent technology is deployed in 3GPP, 3GPP2, and WiMAX networks, as well as unlicensed technologies like WiFi and Femtocell.
Our multimedia core technology is well positioned to simplify the mobile operatorâ€™s migration to 4G networks through additional software on the same 3G platforms theyâ€™ve already deployed. This enables operators to capture new revenue opportunities while also reducing the cost of upgrading their network.
The keys to our success have been technology leadership, organizational agility, and our intense customer focus. We recognize that what we do impacts the mobile operatorsâ€™ network, services, profitability, and ultimately the user experience.
