Rhino TAS

Rhino TAS is a cloud native, open platform for service layer applications, bridging circuit-switched and packet-switched networks and harmonizing the service layer to deliver a consistent service experience, regardless of which network a service provider’s subscribers are attached to. Together with a Service Interaction Server that acts as a Service Broker or SCIM, the Rhino TAS enables service providers to take service innovation further and at a dramatically lower cost. The Rhino TAS comes with a comprehensive network connectivity layer, which facilitates service interaction with both circuit-switched and packet-switched networks, charging systems, OSS/BSS systems, IT systems, databases and web services.

Rhino TAS provides a feature-rich VoLTE and VoWiFi TAS including:

  • MMTel-AS: All MMTel supplementary services in compliance with IR.92 and IR.94 voice and video calling, and more.
  • SCC-AS: Enables IMS Centralized Services (ICS) and Service Continuity, including eSRVCC to enable seamless handovers between circuit-switched and packet-switched access
  • IP-SM-GW: Enables Transport-Level Interworking for SMS between circuit-switched and packet-switched networks
  • USSI-AS: Supports USSD over IMS
  • Authentication Gateway: Provides 3GPP GAA support for the VoLTE TAS, enabling IMS devices to authenticate and login to the XCAP server

Rhino TAS includes an IM-SSF and R-IM-SSF, enabling service providers to provide access to CAMEL and IMS service environments to subscribers, regardless of whether the subscribers are in the circuit-switched and packet-switched domain. This way, service providers can decouple their service migration to IMS from their subscriber migration.

Rhino TAS also includes a prepaid charging front-end, that provides a set of consumer-oriented GSM applications along with an online Diameter Ro-based charging interface to an OCS for real-time charging.

Sentinel OpenCreate

Sentinel OpenCreate is a powerful, open Service Creation Framework (SCF) and test environment specifically designed for operators (or their preferred partners) to build advanced services on the Rhino TAS, enabling independent and agile service differentiation. OpenCreate allows new advanced services to be constructed from an extensible library of component parts and custom features to be added to new and existing services.

These advanced services do not need to be developed by Metaswitch – they can be developed by the operator if they have a development team, by 3rd parties such as companies that specialise in service development, or by Metaswitch partners – the framework is completely open. This openness ensures a competitive supply of services in the marketplace, leading to price competition and 3rd party innovation, resulting in a faster time to market and differentiation at a low cost.

Metaswitch have more than 8000 developers registered on the Rhino developer portal, and a large number of developer partners who are experienced in developing applications on the Sentinel OpenCreate SCF and who have developed applications such as Ring Back Tones, Voicemail, Video-conferencing, mobile VPN and several other VoLTE services.

Metaswitch also provides a large number of advanced telecom services that can be deployed in an operator’s network.
