What is the impact if your organization does not launch 5G service this year?
Lawful Interception is in most cases, the last piece of the solution before launch. SS8 excels in Time to Market with a history of launching number of firsts. SS8 will collaborate to provide a LI solution that fits your needs in the shortest time possible.
Are you cloud ready or on path to be cloud ready soon?
SS8 supports Hardware, Virtual Machine and Cloud deployments. For 5G especially, cloud support is important for scale and cost-effectiveness. SS8 is a leading cloud based LI provider, including ETSI Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Private clouds.
What is the rough number of subscribers in your network?
Size and scope of the planned 5G deployment will help us provide you with options and solutions as well as pricing options.
What infrastructure providers are involved in your 5G plans, including NEPS and Cloud infrastructure?
SS8 works with a number of Network Equipment Provider (NEPs) as well as cloud providers, including ETSI NFV compliant clouds. SS8 likely has a working relationship with existing NEPs in your 5G network. SS8 will be happy to engage with the NEP providers to discuss integration and solutions.
What are your plans for bandwidth-hungry applications such as Netflix for 5G lawful interception?
With 5G comes great speeds and bandwidth requirements. This means that a targets content has to be intercepted and delivered to the Law Enforcement Agency (LEA). SS8 has solved this problem from scale, cost, and compliance perspective.

IoT and other applications that require low latency, high bandwidth are inevitable with 5G. SS8 was the 1st to deploy an IoT LI solution on Advanced 4G.
Who is involved in your 5G decision?
SS8 will be happy to be a part of your 5G journey, collaborating with you all the way with the goal to solve your compliance requirements in a price-effective and timely manner.
