Radisys and Airspan deliver world’s first commercial LTE-Advanced solution for small cells
HILLSBORO, OR, US, February 26, 2014 – Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, and Airspan, a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks, have won Telecoms.com’s Pushing the Limits – Mobile Award for the development of the world’s first commercial LTE-Advanced solution for small cells. The joint solution integrates Radisys’ Trillium® TOTALeNodeB™ small cell software, enhanced with key LTE-Advanced features, with Airspan’s AirSynergy LTE all-in-one compact outdoor pico base station. Together, Airspan and Radisys are enabling mobile operators to accelerate LTE-Advanced deployments and take advantage of increased aggregate throughput, enhanced cell edge performance and better interference mitigation and spectrum reuse. The awards were announced at the Telecoms.com Awards dinner in Barcelona on February 24.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized for our ability to ‘push the limits’ with our small cell software and enable mobile operators to achieve the benefits of LTE-Advanced technology, bringing relief to overloaded networks and improving overall customer satisfaction with the delivery of true 4G speeds,” said Todd Mersch, general manager, Software and Solutions, Radisys. “We worked side-by-side with Airspan on feature customization and platform integration and verification to ensure a world-class LTE-Advanced solution that can be deployed today.”
“This collaboration with Radisys to build the first LTE-Advanced small cell solution enabled our ability to be first to market with AirSynergy LTE small cell and support mobile operators’ tactical deployments of LTE-Advanced technology,” said Paul Senior, CTO, Airspan. “AirSynergy introduces a host of new techniques to boost network capacity and ensure straightforward deployments.”
Airspan’s AirSynergy LTE small cell is an all-in-one compact outdoor pico base station that combines LTE-Advanced techniques, related to heterogeneous network smell cell deployment and Self Optimizing Networks (SON), through its augmentation with Radisys’ LTE TOTALeNodeB software, plus rapidly developed extensions and new features that enable base stations to ‘automatically’ self-configure and self-optimize.
Radisys’ Trillium® TOTALeNodeB software is a turn-key, deployment proven small cell solution that dramatically simplifies the development and integration of LTE small cells while cutting the typical product development time in half. It enables customers to leverage one software solution that can support all small cell deployments, from residential cells that support up to eight users to Pico cells that support 100+ users. This scalability enables rapid deployment.
