TORONTO, March 26, 2014 /CNW/ - Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN), a leading provider of business-critical billing and charging software
and solutions for communications service providers (CSPs), is pleased
to announce that it has launched the latest version of its Intelligent
Network (IN) solution for GSM-Railway (GSM-R) networks at Swedish
Transport Administration (Trafikverket). Trafikverket (TrV) is the
Government agency responsible for the long-term planning of the
transport system and is also in charge of the state road network and
national railway network. Redknee's GSM-R IN solution, which is an
integral part of Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) end-to-end GSM-R
solution, is enabling Railway Network Operators (RNOs) to deliver
better operational support and increased reliability of the GSM-R
network. Redknee's carrier-grade solutions are providing greater
agility and scalability for railways, utilities, healthcare, cloud and
over-the-top providers to quickly advance their growth strategies.
Trafikverket Sweden launched version 5.0 of Redknee's Railway@vantage solution, which provides TrV Sweden with a Next Generation Intelligent
Network (ngIN) and delivers additional value-added services (VAS)
capabilities. Railway@vantage is an off-the-shelf, productized solution
that integrates simply into the network infrastructure, providing RNOs
with enhanced operational safety, ease of use and the flexibility to
deliver a high quality railway communications system. In addition,
Railway@vantage offers smart operational features that far exceed the
current standards, including the provision of continuous availability
through Geographical Redundancy in the event of a disaster. The
solution's active/active architecture duplicates most of the core
network elements, therefore matching the traffic, with live traffic
handled simultaneously by both geographically separated sites.
With Railway@vantage, Railway Network Operators (RNOs) are better
equipped to perform maintenance without disrupting service and have
assurance that they can deliver continuous operations. TrV Sweden is
utilizing Railway@vantage to provide a fully redundant GSM-R network
with an easy-to-adopt, cost-efficient and future-proof approach.
Dirk Lewandowski, Head of NSN Railway Solutions said:
"NSN and Redknee helped Trafikverket build a reliable Geo Redundant
Intelligent Network solution as part of the GSM-R network in Sweden.
Our strong relationship with the customer and Redknee were key to the
successful collaboration during the implementation project. Most
importantly, the new solution increases the availability, thus
contributing to the enhanced reliability of train travel for
Lucas Skoczkowski, CEO at Redknee, commented:
"We are pleased to support Trafikverket Sweden with our latest
Railway@vantage solution. The successful upgrade showcases the
innovation that Redknee is driving across multiple verticals including
railways, utilities, smart cities and telecommunications. Redknee will
continue to invest in our portfolio in order to advance our position as
the provider of choice of billing, charging, customer care and policy
solutions around the world."
