Milestone innovation leverages both cloud and edge with zero configuration

HaloB allowed us to maintain services to our clients without a moment's disruption. This benefit alone was enough to convince me, but the other features and emerging capabilities of HaloB make Baicells an even better and smarter LTE choice for us than ever.

Baicells Technologies, a leading provider of disruptive global LTE solutions, has announced at Wireless Internet Service Providers' Association's (WISPA) annual WISPAMERICA show the commercial release of HaloB. HaloB is an industry first in both the mobile and fixed LTE worlds. Among other features, HaloB uses the public cloud for initial authentication, then stores HSS data locally, allowing uninterrupted operation even in the event of a cloud outage. HaloB marks an exciting development in advanced and SON-based edge EPC requirements for coming 5G high-density, high capacity de-centralized LTE deployments.

HaloB delivers a number of unique features:

  • Self-configuring plug and play. Once HaloB is enabled via the software on switch, literally zero action is needed by the operator, no change in device or network management is required.
  • De-coupling of the eNobeB and Core network, eliminating S1 tunnel disruptions.
  • Additionally, L2 functionality and VxLAN enable SME and LAN gaming.
  • Multiple APNs and isolates management devices from service packet devices.
  • Allows UEs/CPEs to work in true bridge with dedicated IP addressing.
  • HSS remains in the cloud, but IMSI activation and service packages are stored in the eNB.

"Gigabeam Networks has been trialing HaloB for a number of months. During that period there were a few cloud disruptions," explained Michael Clemons, president of Virginia-based Gigabeam Networks. "HaloB allowed us to maintain services to our clients without a moment's disruption. This benefit alone was enough to convince me, but the other features and emerging capabilities of HaloB make Baicells an even better and smarter LTE choice for us than ever." "Baicells continues to prove our chops as an innovator. Our patent-pending HaloB is a revolutionary approach hybridizing virtualization and distributed EPC, taking the best from each to create a zero-touch edge solution requiring no additional hardware or any change in operations.," noted Patrick Leary, president Baicells Technologies North America, Inc. "Gone are the days of 6 or 7 figure expensive centralized and complex EPCs. Welcome to the 3 figure world of HaloB."

A proud member of WISPA, Baicells solutions are available via several select channels listed on our http://www.na.baicells.com website.
