NTT DoCoMo chooses broadband gateway from Stoke

Stoke and Japanese systems integrator Net One Systems said NTT DoCoMo has chosen the Stoke Session Exchange 3000 (SSX-3000) gateway to manage the increasing mobile broadband traffic on the operator's RAN and backhaul infrastructure.

Stoke said the platform offers significant improvements in price per megabit of throughput, energy-usage reduction and operational savings. Stoke provides a common IP session management over a range of network access technologies. In a recent interview, company President and CEO Vikash Varma said Stoke is looking to extend the life of 3G networks, helping operators adequately manage the influx of data traffic driven by smartphones and laptops. That may be accomplished by offloading traffic onto femtocells, WiFi or another network such as WiMAX. Stoke's seamless multi-network access solution is designed to enable this offload in a way that allows a continuous session without requiring additional network hardware. Moreover, the vendor said it can enable Internet APN offload capability, whereby deep packet inspections are made to divert data traffic that is destined for the Internet directly to the Internet, without requiring that traffic to travel to an operator's core network.
