Stoke and Macnica Networks provide mobile broadband gateways to Japan's Softbank Mobile
LTE security gateway supplier, Stoke, and advanced network systems integrator Macnica Networks have announced they have been selected by Japan's Softbank Mobile to provide Stoke's SSX-3000 gateway in its small cell mobile broadband network.
The product will enhance Softbank's ability to secure the increasing levels of traffic on its all-IP mobile broadband network while maintaining high levels of performance and service to its customers.
In Japan's dynamic mobile broadband market, Softbank continues to innovate and introduce differentiated services for its customers. Stoke's SSX-3000 supports Softbank's strategy of delivering service at the levels customers expect while keeping costs under control and ensuring the security of mobile traffic.
The Stoke SSX-3000 gateway secures communications for more than 10 million subscribers worldwide. It enables mobile operators to deploy an efficient, stand-alone security perimeter fronting their mobile core networks.
'Softbank is a fast moving and innovative competitor in Japan's mobile services marketplace and we are pleased to add them to our growing list of top tier carrier customers,' said Vikash Varma, CEO of Stoke. 'We are privileged to be a supplier to Softbank through Macnica, and look forward to a successful and expanding relationship in Japan, and other key markets like the US.'
The Softbank project builds on recent Stoke wins in Western Europe and marks Stoke's fourth project in Japan, in two of the nation's major mobile operators.
