Telecom Lead Asia: Ubiquisys, the developer of 3G and LTE
intelligent small cells, has completed the first deployments of its new G7
indoor small cell hotspot with two operators in Asia.
In addition to the deployment, the company said that it
has crossed 50,000 public access small cells commercially deployed by
operators in several countries.
We are seeing rapid growth in demand for our public access
small cells solutions, particularly in the demanding Asian market. These
deployment scenarios represent significant technical challenges, but our
adaptive technology was designed to run in open-access mode from the outset.
We’ve built a substantial base of public access small cell deployments over the
past two years and this real-world experience led to the development of
ActiveCell technology,” said Will Franks, CTO and co-founder of Ubiquisys.
Featuring ActiveCell technology, the G7 indoor
small cell hotspot deployments tested extremes of data and signalling traffic,
including hotspots experiencing 10,000 users with each user running HSPA
data for over 25 percent of the time.
The deployments will cover indoor public spaces such as
cafes, stores, malls and airports. These indoor public spaces are ideal
environments for small cells as operators face rapidly increasing data usage
and have abundant fixed broadband available for backhaul.
The ActiveCell technology complements Ubiquisys’
ActiveRadio and ActiveSON systems for small cell self-management and
In addition, it extends these capabilities to provide
carrier grade symbiotic interworking with the macro network, in particular to
manage interference effects, whilst retaining the advantages of simple
installation and commodity IP backhaul.
Ubiquisys said that small cells running Ubiquisys
ActiveCell technology combine low operational costs with the ability to deal
with the real-world requirements of mobile users in public spaces.
