Mobility Management Entity

As operators launch Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communication Services (RCS) on LTE and address network capacity, coverage and increased M2M device interaction, the signaling load on the core network will increase significantly as driven by key service enablers such as device tracking, paging, dedicated bearer activation, etc.

Mitel’s high performance MME is centrally deployed as a single logical entity with an independently scalable control plane designed to meet capacity requirements on the operator’s network.

Mitel’s Mobility Management Entity (MME) is 3GPP compliant Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network element that provides subscriber, session and mobility management functions, including control plane operations such as intra-LTE, intra and inter-3GPP mobility, paging, authentication, security procedures etc. The MME also provides critical functions such as tracking area list management, MME selection for handoff and roaming support with S6a interface towards the home HSS.

Based on Mitel’s mOne® software based convergence platform, MME provides a carrier grade, highly scalable and reliable solution that can be deployed on virtualized cloud-based infrastructure to provide  high performance and deployment flexibility needed to meet the operator’s business and operational requirements.
