Subscriber Server

The Amdocs Home Subscriber Server (HSS) is the master


repository for subscriber profi les, device profi les, and state
information. As a mandatory control plane function in the LTE
Evolved Packet Core (EPC), the HSS manages subscriber
identities, service profi les, authentication, authorization, and
Quality of Service (QoS) for Long Term Evolution (LTE) and
IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks.
Fully compliant with the Third Generation Partnership
Project (3GPP) Release 8 standard, the HSS provides
support for LTE interworking with non-3GPP networks, and
leverages the rich data management capabilities of Amdocs
Subscriber Data Broker to support subscriber and device
identity management, service profi le management, static/
dynamic QoS management, and state and usage tracking.

Highlights
The Amdocs Home Subscriber Server is available as
a software solution or as a pre-integrated network
system, which:
Reduces deployment costs
Accelerates time-to-market for new services
Provides a modular approach for adding network
capacity

Why the Amdocs Home Subscriber Server?


Sophisticated subscriber,
management capabilities.

device,

and

service

Proven interoperability with all major network equipment


vendors.
L
everage and protect investments in existing Home
Location Registers (HLR) for voice and SMS services
because HSS provides data federation from HLR and
other data repositories.
Field-proven in live LTE production environments supporting
LTE services, thereby de-risking deployment plans.
Part of complete pre-integrated network control solution
for LTE that includes Amdocs Policy Controller (PCRF)
and Amdocs Subscriber Data Broker.

Features and benefits


Dynamic service authorization
Policy-driven business rules engine modifies service
parameters based on device type, subscriber location,
and other information to enable free or promotional service
offers, or provide different QoS levels.
Enables flexible static policy control at attachment.
Flexible data schema
Provides fast and flexible modeling of services,
subscribers, and device profiles.
Reduces time-to-market for new service creation and launch.
Additional services can be defined and customized for
specific market segments.
Interworking
Optional 3GPP AAA module for seamless mobility and
interworking between LTE and non-3GPP networks.
Broad multi-vendor interoperability and standards
support
F
 ully compliant with 3GPP Release 8 standards and with
interfaces and performance requirements designed and
tested for multi-vendor environments.
Features standardized LTE interfaces such as the S6a (to
the MME), the S6d (to the SGSN), SWx (to the 3GPP AAA),
and support for IMS interfaces (Cx).

Scalability and reliability


Deployable in load balancing and active/active paired
configuration combined with standby geo-redundant
system, which offers high availability and reliability.
Database-level synchronization and replication adds a
layer of protection to ensure data integrity.
Equipment Identity Register (EIR)
By integrating this function into the HSS, a separate
database for blacklisted devices is not required, thus
simplifying database management.

Deployment configurations

Technical specifications

The HSS is available as a software solution or as a preintegrated network system. The HSS network system
reduces deployment costs, accelerates time-to-market,
and provides a modular approach for adding network
capacity. Pre-integrated on carrier-grade IBM servers, the
HSS network system can be rapidly deployed in a wide
range of service provider environments and is available in
multiple configurations to meet the needs of small, medium
and large scale deployments.
