Node-H announces its 32-user HSPA+ Small-Cell software solution for use in Enterprise and Outdoor devices. The software is ready for the 32-user SoC’s which are being announced at the Femto Forum Femtocells Americas conference in San Diego.
Node-H 3GPP Standards-based femtocell and Small-Cell software is already in use in residential settings. Node-H has also demonstrated 16- and 24-user enterprise solutions. Now, as the SoC device capability increases, Node-H is announcing its 32-user solution which is specifically optimized for Enterprise and Outdoor Small Cells. The solution supports HSPA+ with 21Mbps downlink and 5.7Mbps uplink, and will be upgraded to 42Mbps and 11Mbps as the SoC’s support higher rates.
Enterprise femtocells require higher output power and full handover capability. Node-H software includes full Femto-to-Femto handover including simultaneous speech and data calls and is standards compliant and proven in multiple eco-systems. This allows businesses to provide excellent coverage and capacity, secure services and seamless interoperability with the macro network.
Outdoor Small Cells can support a cell radius of up to 3 kilometers. By integrating Small Cells with the larger Macro-cellular network, operators can create a heterogeneous network. The Small-Cell devices can be used as in-fill coverage in shopping centers, sports stadiums, airports, railways stations and public spaces.
Using low power and self-configuration, Small Cells can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of Macro-cellular equipment, and increase coverage and capacity in “hot-spots”, or provide coverage for “not-spots” meeting highly variable end-user demand.
“Operators are looking for a range of Small-Cell solutions. OEMs or ODMs who license the Node-H software can cover part or all of that range, with a guarantee of inter-operability and with a roadmap to LTE and dual-mode cells,” says Mike Cronin, CEO of Node-H.
Node-H femtocell software provides a full turnkey solution for ODMs to go quickly to market, including a full suite of non-telecom functionality like carrier-grade security. Node-H can adapt the solution for compliance with various eco-systems.
