MiniCore

YateHSS/HLR & YateUCN in a box for testing & research

 

YateUCN
YateHSS/HLR
YateSTP
YateDRA
YateMMI

MiniCore combines our YateHSS/HLR, YateUCN and YateSMSC in a small package. 

It can be used a second core network for testing.

In a laboratory it can be paired with the LTE LabKit for a full LTE/GSM network.

 

Components

The MiniCore is a small factor PC computer that has preinstalled the following software components:

YateUCN (MSC/VLR, GMSC, gsmSCF, MME/SGW/SGSN, PGW/GGSN, IMS CSCF)

YateHLR/HSS (AuC, HLR, HSS, Subscriber management)

YateSMSC (SMS store-and-forward, routing, home routed SMS)

YateSTP (routing of SS7 messages by Point Code or Global Title)

YateDRA (routing of Diameter messages by host, realm, application)

YateMMI (Web management interface)

NOTE: On demand additional components can be installed on the same hardware.

 

Features

Setup/edit mobile network and component preferences via MMI management interface

Minimal monitoring of each network component, additional YateBTS monitoring possible

Wireshark capture of communication between components including decrypted IMS traffic

JSON API integration with any SIM management and CRM systems

JSON and REST API for sending SMS

Can use both SIGTRAN/SS7 and Diameter for signaling

Supports both IPv4 and IPv6

Works both stand alone and with external components
