Paratus selects Star Solutions for virtualised LTE core network

17 Nov 2020

Full-service pan-African operator Paratus has selected Star Solutions’ Sonata EPC core network platform to strengthen its LTE broadband network in Namibia. The deployment enables Paratus to leverage the benefits of improved scalability and increased capacity to further expand its network, offering its customers a truly seamless connectivity experience, the two companies said in a statement. The EPC provides the core team with full visibility of the network functionality, which has outgrown the requirements of the initial EPC rolled out in 2016. Various pilot sites have been rolled out and Paratus is looking towards having the EPC fully commissioned by mid-November.

‘Our customers’ demands for additional capacity are constantly growing, which is why we believe in continuously investing in the latest technologies so that we can sustain the increasing demands. By selecting Star Solutions as our partner, we are well-positioned to address future growth and expansion as the network platform is reliable and backed up by an excellent support team,’ said Andrew Hall, managing director of Paratus in Namibia.
