Home Location Register (HLR/HSS)

• CORE element in any carrier network

• Full compliance with 3GPP standards

PROTEI Home Location Register is a data base in charge of the management of mobile subscribers. A PLMN may contain one or several HLRs: it depends on the number of mobile subscribers, on the capacity of the equipment and on the organization of the network.

PROTEI Home Location Register is a cost-effective, high performance and scalable solution to suit both - new and existing mobile operators, mobile virtual network operators (MVNO), service- and content providers. PROTEI Home Location Register scalable architecture and flexible throughput licensing enables an operator or provider to select a solution that not only mirrors the revenue stream of today, but can be used to meet operator tomorrow's needs.

PROTEI HLR contains the permanent subscriber data register with entries for each and every subscriber within a mobile network. It contains static and permanent information about a subscriber (e.g. subscriber status, service subscriptions, supplementary services, permissions etc.). The HLR works as the central location to route calls within the respective mobile operator’s network. Most of the administrative activities regarding the subscribers are controlled and centralized around the HLR. The Authentication Centre (AuC) is integrated to PROTEI HLR to provide more efficient and effective mobile network design. Thus PROTEI HLR contains authentication information as well. It also forwards the charging information to the billing center.

PROTEI Home Location Register that is developed in strict accordance with ETSI 3GPP standards gives the Operator unique possibility to obtain a long-term storage of information about its subscribers containing pertinent user information, including address, account status, and preferences.
