Tinkoff Mobile chooses NFWare Virtual CGNAT to provide new subscribers with IP addresses

Tinkoff Mobile and software network technology provider NFWare have signed an agreement to deploy a Virtual CGNAT solution, the company said.

This deployment will allow the operator to provide IP addresses for all new subscribers during the rapid growth of their client base.

NFWare Virtual CGNAT extends IPv4 networks and enables a smooth transition to IPv6. The solution is fully software which runs on standard servers and integrates into a virtualized infrastructure. NFWare provides high reliability and performance of up to 240 gigabits per second, allowing the innovative vendor to successfully compete with traditional incumbent network equipment manufacturers. NFWare products have been deployed by numerous CSPs in the United States, Europe, Central Asia, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The concept of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has been part of the Tinkoff Mobile strategy since its launch in 2017. With NFWare´s software solution, the operator will scale the bandwidth of its network as needed within just a few hours and significantly save capital costs when expanding the network.

Launched in 2017, the Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) Tinkoff Mobile is part of Tinkoff Group, along with Tinkoff Bank. Tinkoff Mobile works on the full MVNO model based on the Tele2 radio access network and infrastructure. It has its network code, a dedicated number range, SIM cards, and business applications. Tinkoff Mobile offers a flexible and convenient mobile experience that allows customers to tailor their mobile plan to their own needs, rather than selecting from a fixed set of existing tariffs.
