Ercom, cutting-edge Telco solutions from Europe

ercomDuring the latest Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, the European Sting as media partner of the event took another very interesting interview from a top member of Ercom’s management team, the VP Marketing, Guy Lecurieux Lafayette. Ercom is a French telecom solution provider specializing in protocol convergence/inter-operability of telecommunication networks. The interview was around the main business activities of Ercom today and how these activities meet the needs of a very dynamic market such as telecommunications.

History

Ercom was founded back in 1986 and since then has been dedicated in the development of high-end telecommunication technologies and solutions. Until 2007, Ercom was a service provider company. During this period Ercom launched a variety of products such as the Mobipass solution for testing and measuring the 2G Networks and the Secphone solution, which was the predecessor of CryptoSmart, its top product for secure communications.

The year 2007 was a year that transformed Ercom from a service provider company to a product-oriented one. This change in the business plan, has allowed Ercom to manufacture and sell products. In the latest years, Ercom has developed enormously with new product launches and new international offices in Tokyo and Chicago.

Today, in its effort to keep on truck with the developments in the telecommunications and the technological sector in general, Ercom focuses on two main product lines: 4G LTE validation and optimization systems, and secure communication solutions. Ercom is now one of the key European companies that provides a complete solution for measuring and testing 4G/LTE networks, which enables Ercom to differentiate itself from the competition.

Wireless Network Optimization

Ercom has as its main solution the Mobipass, which is a family of products that are used to validate and optimise 4G/LTE networks. The Mobipass is mainly for Mobile Network Operators and Mobile Service Providers that want the best quality and performance for their network. The development of the smartphone market and the increase in demand for data is very challenging for network operators. They need to find a way to ensure the quality of their LTE network. This is very critical for their operations and their effort to keep their customer satisfied while they are trying to acquire new ones from their competitors.

The Mobipass, Ercom’s solution for the Network Operators, can diminish the cost and the risk that the deployment of the new 4G/LTE network may imply. “Scheduler assessment, validation of eNodeB configuration, non-regression, testing, eNodeB bench-marking, QoS and QoE measurement” are some of the main services that Mobipass offers to the Network Operators.

Secure Communications

The increasing use of PCs and mobile devices for the daily communication of companies and public authorities has raised several security concerns. People need to know that their data and their phone calls are secured by being eavesdropped. For this very sensitive issue, Ercom has developed a cutting-edge and secured solutions that can be used not only in Europe but in devices all over the world. The Cryptosmart is a very technologically developed solution that can ensure the security in Windows PC and Android mobile devices.

According to Ercom, “Cryptosmart-Mobile Suite secures mobile phones for all communications (voice, data, mail, SMS) and on all networks (GPRS, Edge, 3G, LTE, HSDPA, Wi-Fi®, Satellite, etc)”. It is not very expensive and can be used on the latest Android devices. In addition the “Cryptosmart-PC Suite secures all types of communication (voice, data, video, mail) on any type of network (GPRS, Edge, 3G, LTE, HSDPA, Wi-Fi®, Satellite, xDSL, etc.)”.

All in all, Ercom is a company that invests a lot in R&D to create products that meet the needs of the very challenging and dynamic sector of telecommunications. It focuses on two very important and crucial aspects of this sector with solutions that ensure that the Network Providers will get the best service quality. It is a European company that provides full services in both measuring and optimizing LTE networks and security of communication. The future for Ercom seems to be brilliant, with an increasing use of LTE/4G networks and the need for a more secure and safe communication between people.
