20 Mar WISPAMERICA19: Accelleran and Gemtek strategic partnership show certified OnGo/CBRS Small Cells
Cincinnati, US, 20 March 2019 – Accelleran and Gemtek are announcing that the OnGo/CBRS variant of the Accelleran E1000 Small Cell product family (E1012) has achieved OnGo/CBRS Alliance and FCC Part 96 certification as Category A CBSD Small Cell. Both companies have been strategic partners for the joint delivery of compelling Small Cell products based on Accelleran’s carrier-grade Small Cell software solutions paired with cost-optimised Gemtek hardware platforms designed jointly as per Accelleran requirements. The product roadmap now enables a migration path towards 5G architectures and use cases by means of the Accelleran dRAX vRAN paired with 4G Radio Units.
The flagship product offering for this partnership is the E1000 series of Small Cells. This Small Cell range is a small form factor (3.5L), low power consumption (21W) and flexible fully outdoor (IP67) solution which, depending on antenna configuration, can target dense capacity-constrained deployments with omnidirectional antennas or sparse coverage-constrained deployments with panel antennas. The Accelleran E1000 Series Small Cells are enabled by Accelleran architecture-agnostic Small Cell software deployable as fully integrated Small Cells or, in disaggregated vRAN and 5G-Ready architectures, with Accelleran dRAX. They can support Neutral Host, Slicing, Edge and Network-in-a-Box/Hybrid EPC architectures.
Accelleran Small Cells have proven interoperability with majority of the commercial Tier 1/2/3 EPCs in the market, standards-based Network Management systems and, in the specific context of OnGo/CBRS variants, the available SAS solutions.
“We are very excited to continue our strategic collaboration on LTE Small Cells and address the Small Cell market opportunity with an innovative ODM hardware partner as Gemtek, and demonstrate how Accelleran RAN/vRAN Software Solutions together with ODM-based volume manufacturing can enable dense and programmable mobile networks for carriers and new entrants such as infrastructure suppliers, municipalities, IoT/private LTE verticals, etc… at the lowest TCO possible” commented Frédéric Van Durme, CEO of Accelleran. “In 2012 Accelleran set out to raise the quality bar in the Small Cell industry and its Small Cell RAN/vRAN Software Solutions, E1000 Series products and new dRAX Open Interface RAN Intelligence show what we can do for the industry now with 4G and before long with 5G too.”
“We are pleased to continue working with Accelleran in the use of LTE small cells and software solutions to deliver together with our hardware platforms flexible, robust and best-in-class RAN and vRAN products to address the market now and with the advent of 5G” commented Fred Yeh, CTO of Gemtek .
Accelleran provides small cell RAN and vRAN software solutions and Urban, Enterprise, Rural and Remote LTE Small Cells for Fixed Wireless and Mobile access, solving real-world deployment challenges from sparse coverage-constrained deployments through to capacity-constrained ultra-dense HetNet environments. Accelleran offers a range of products which support not only the 3.5GHz mobile capacity and US OnGo/CBRS bands, but also many other mainstream LTE bands. Additional features such as Network-in-a-box, Multi-Operator Neutral Host/SCaaS, Mobile Edge Computing are also offered, and Accelleran is engaged in a number of projects developing Virtualization, Network Slicing and Internet of Things for 4G and 5G Smart City infrastructure which are leveraging on the Accelleran dRAX disaggregated Open Interface RAN Intelligence. One of them is the H2020 5GCity project for which Accelleran delivers the virtual RAN software solutions and small cells. This 5G-PPP project aims to deliver a distributed cloud and radio platform for 5G Neutral Hosts, with pilots in the city of Barcelona, Bristol and Lucca.
Accelleran was founded in 2012 to meet the global need for high quality, carrier-grade, reliable 4G LTE and 5G software and design solutions to power the future mobile networks. The founding team are veterans of the wireless and small cell industry, working together since 2007.
Accelleran provides Mobile RAN and vRAN software and LTE Small Cell product solutions addressing the real-world challenges of increasing data volumes and 5G applications, calling for hyperdense networks. Accelleran’s unique software architecture is genuinely independent from any hardware platform. Operators can leverage one software solution for integrated small cells and for disaggregated and virtualised RAN networks with slicing and edge capabilities. With a global Cellular Industry’s leading design team, Accelleran is the technology choice for carrier grade, reliable, performant Small Cells and Radio Access Network software solutions for Fixed Wireless Access, Public Mobile, Private Network, Neutral Host or IOT/Vertical industries solution providers.
