Historically the Gateway MSC or GMSC is the entity in 3G mobile networks responsible for obtaining the location of a subscriber, so that calls from other external networks can be delivered correctly. It does this by interconnecting to key components in the network such as the HLR and HSS, Billing and OCS platforms, IN/SCP, and Number Portability databases etc.
The SVI-GMSC provides greater functionality at a far lower cost than traditional GMSC’s. This NFV compliant, carrier grade product provides a high degree of flexibility to MVNO’s.
