Telenet Group, the largest provider of cable broadband services and third largest mobile operator in Belgium, has launched the BroadForward BFX Next Generation Signaling Controller delivered and implemented by leading network solutions provider Infradata.
BFX is a software based multi-protocol routing and interworking product designed to support signaling integration in and across 2G/3G, 4G/LTE, 5G, IMS, Fixed, Wi-Fi, Number Portability and M2M networks.
Telenet offers quadruple-play services consisting of video, broadband internet, and fixed-line telephony (VoIP) as well as mobile voice and data services to 4.9 million service subscribers. Last year’s acquisition of mobile operator BASE enables Telenet to move away from the current MVNO model and benefit from considerable operating synergies between their fixed and newly acquired mobile network assets.
The implementation of the BFX Next Generation Signaling Controller enables Telenet to speed up time to market for routing and interworking across their Mobile (SS7/Diameter/ENUM), Fixed-Line (RADIUS) and IT (HTTP) domains, as well as significantly reduce cost for multi-technology, multi-vendor integration.
