- Telecommunications operators are seeking to maximize their Returns on Investment in Next-Generation Networks. In converged broadband networks, providing guaranteed Quality of Service is a cornerstone capability, and essential for the successful commercial deployment and operation of new solutions, such as IPTV and IMS-based services.
- A common problem with packet-based communications networks is guaranteeing Quality of Service end-to-end across different domains. The Netsocket Portfolio solved the problem with a bandwidth broker system that provides resource reservation and admission control in a Label Switched Path between Border Gateway routers.
- The Netsocket Portfolio expands beyond basic IP networks to include the same end-to-end Quality of Service within a mobile telecommunications system.
- Netsocket innovations have been included in ETSI and ITU-T Resource and Admission Control Sub-System (RACS) standards for Next Generation Networking that are widely adopted.
