LTE-Advanced metrocell boost for mobile broadband -- Collaboration between Cambridge Consultants and Airspan Networks redefines network design

Cambridge, UK and MA, May 14, 2013 Innovative product development firm Cambridge Consultants has collaborated with Airspan, a leading vendor of LTE small cells and broadband wireless products and solutions, to boost the data capacity capabilities of Airspan's heterogenous network (HetNet) base stations.

The enhancements include LTE-Advanced features that support the deployment of HetNets, allowing operators to deploy small cells on the same radio channel as macrocellular LTE networks. Integrated networks deliver better coverage and capacity to users on both the small-cell and macrocell base stations.

The work on the AirSynergy LTE eNodeB base stations was part of a wider partnership between the two companies, working on LTE to enhance the performance and extend the capabilities of Airspan's LTE products.

AirSynergy supports both 4G access technologies and Airspan's intelligent wireless backhaul technology iBridge in a single small form-factor base station. The unique small-cell solution provides any time, anywhere mobile access to broadband services at much higher capacity than is possible with 3G networks. Airspan's LTE and LTE-Advanced solution is compliant with the latest 3GPP standards and interoperable with commercial FDD and TDD user equipment and third-party EPCs.

"The small-cell market is growing rapidly today and our customers are turning to us to provide platforms that help them get to market faster with ever greater degrees of differentiation," said Paul Senior, CTO at Airspan. "Cambridge Consultants has been invaluable to us in enabling us to offer a range of extra features and capabilities based on our core technology. We knew that, with a broadband wireless technology as demanding as LTE and LTE Advanced and with very high user expectations we required a development partner that we could truly rely on."

Tim Fowler, commercial director in the wireless division of Cambridge Consultants, said: "LTE is the first cellular standard to achieve global acceptance and LTE Advanced is the next step on the road to delivering exceptional mobile broadband. Deploying heterogeneous macrocells and metrocells in the radio access network is now accepted as the best route to delivering higher capacity and lower operational costs for network operators. This in turn allows them to continue to expand their mobile broadband services and reach even more customers."

Cambridge Consultants will be exhibiting its LTE work -- along with other wireless projects -- at CTIA in Las Vegas, May 21-23, stand 4121, and Critical Communications World in Paris, May 21-24, stand C210.
