PROTEI CAMEL Gateway is a horizontally scalable, carrier class system that unlocks a wide range of possibilities for providing IN services both in the home network and to outbound roaming subscriber.
The system allows real-time controlling voice call, SMS- and GPRS-sessions in GSM networks, using service logic applications. Convenient Service Creation
Environment being an additional component of CAMEL-gateway allows easy service creation and service tuning for wide range of VAS.
Embedded CAMEL-proxy functionality allows PROTEI CAMEL Gateway to be easily integrated into existing IN networks, allowing new services to be deployed with no disruption to the delivery of previously available services.
Horizontal scalability and easy integration with existing SCP installations make PROTEI CAMEL Gateway an ideal solution for providing IN Value Added Services in networks of all sizes.
SIGTRAN support ensures easy integration into next-generation mobile networks. Flexible API enables easy integration with service logic application developed by 3rd parties.
Such services as black and white lists, inbound consumption counting, number translation, mobile VPN, and others can be efficiently deployed basing on PROTEI CAMEL-gateway.
PROTEI CAMEL Gateway:
-Fast and simple IN service deployment
-Embedded CAMEL-proxy functionality
-Supports wide range of IN services
-Convenient service creation environment
-Network architecture with load balancing
Standalone CAMEL SSP
Deployment of PROTEI Standalone SSP gives to operators highly demanded opportunity to organize CAMEL- roaming in the networks that don’t support CAMEL technology for subscribers from CAMEL- enabled networks. PROTEI-SSP usage provides an opportunity to access services that are supported by the intelligent platform (SCP) of the home mobile operator for inbound roamers registered in the visited networks at MSCs that haven’t integrated SSP functionality and don’t support CAMEL technology. The system allows providing voice services (Prepaid, etc.) and SMS services according to CAMEL phase 2, 3 specifications.
Real-Time Charging Gateway
PROTEI Real-time Charging Gateway helps Operators to optimize and simplify on-line authentication/authorization and charging procedures for many services such as data traffic charging including broadband data traffic charging (WiFi, xDSL and so on). The wide range of supported interfaces means the platform can be integrated into practically any GSM/UMTS network.
The platform supports all functionality need for smooth integration of different platforms and easy deployment of on-line authentication and charging capabilities for any services being delivered on those platforms. The platform supports such functions as authentication, access and accounting for data sessions controlled by 3GPP or non-3GPP broadband access equipment, both fixed and wireless, real- time charging of data sessions controlled by broadband access equipment, both for Operator’s own subscribers and inbound roamers, volume-based or time-based charging of data sessions, call-based charging for voice services such as VoIP calls served by non CS-core call control components.
System supports various methods for subscriber authentication and authorization: authorization using WEB-portal using MSISDN and one-time passwords requested by IVR, SMS or USSD and/or vouchers, EAP-SIM/EAP-AKA authentication etc.
System supports a variety of interfaces towards platforms delivering services to be charged.
Integration can be done via RADIUS, http, or any other proprietary interfaces. Integration with OCS can be done via DIAMETER, CAMEL or billing vendor’s specific interfaces and protocols.
