“SpiderCloud enables us to provide our customers, particularly our corporate customers, with a 4G solution,” said Muhammad Aslam Saqib, director Technical Strategy & RAN Planning with Warid Telecom.
SpiderCloud’s system includes a Services Node (SCSN) that controls up to 100 self-organizing, multi-access 3G and 4G small cells, providing coverage and capacity for enterprise and venues of up to 1.5 million square feet. Telecoms can install a system in days using an Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) as a managed service by a mobile operator’s network.
SpiderCloud has a portfolio of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Radio Nodes operating in 3G (single band), and dual-band 3G+4G and 4G+4G small cells as part of the system.
“This is the first commercial deployment of SpiderCloud in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Michael Gallagher, CEO of SpiderCloud Wireless.
Emtel Communications is the system integrator partner in Pakistan to deliver small cell systems to Warid Telecom.
SpiderCloud Wireless’ customers include Verizon, Vodafone UK, Vodafone Netherlands and leading mobile operators across several continents.
