The Accelleran Single Carrier Local Area E1000 Series is the result of a very disruptive approach to the delivery of cost-effective, carrier and mission-critical grade TDD and FDD Small Cell networks through a focus on software quality and partnerships with volume manufacturers. It was designed in response to the operator’s need to meet the ever-growing ubiquitous connectivity needs of their customers at the lowest possible TCO.
Our Single Carrier Local Area E1000 product range is applicable to deployments from sparse coverage-constrained scenarios to capacity-constrained and ultra-dense scenarios. It has been successfully trialled in suburban and rural environments with high-gain directional antennas to replace FWA legacy WiMax equipment and enables LTE deployments with a much lower TCO than that offered with the typical LTE macrocells. Our Single Carrier Local Area E1000 products have also been successfully trialled in urban/suburban environments with omni-directional antennas to address capacity-constrained ultra-dense deployments.
The following is a summary of the different types of deployments targeted by our Single Carrier Local Area E1000 Series.
In terms of supported frequencies, our Single Carrier Local Area E1000 product range supports the most deployed TDD and FDD bands, with a particular focus on the specific range dedicated to the new 3.5GHz worldwide mobile capacity in B42 (3400-3600 MHz), B43 (3600-3800MHz) and the upcoming CBRS variant (3550-3700 MHz)
This is our E1010 variant for 3400-3600 MHz spectrum, which is currently the most widely deployed spectrum in 3.5GHz. B42 has been traditionally licensed and used for Fixed Wireless Access deployments. However, after the EU CEPT decision to define TDD band plan as “preferred” in B42 and the endorsement by the ITU WRC’15, this band is becoming a de facto worldwide mobile capacity band. The strengthening of the ecosystem around B42 and advent of smartphone form factors supporting it will enable mobile access use cases to MNOs who were traditionally targeting FWA deployments.
This is our E1011 variant for 3600-3800 MHz spectrum, also part of the generic 3.5GHz. B43 has been traditionally licensed and used for Fixed Wireless Access deployments. However, after the EU CEPT decision to define TDD band plan as “mandatory” in B43 this band is becoming a de facto mobile capacity band. The strengthening of the ecosystem around B43 and advent of smartphone form factors supporting it will enable mobile access use cases to MNOs who were traditionally targeting FWA deployments.
This is our E1012 variant for 3550-3700 MHz spectrum, which is defined by the FCC in the US with an innovative regulatory framework based on spectrum sharing. The strengthening of the ecosystem around B42 and B43 benefits the ecosystem needed to enable CBRS and mobile access use cases, beyond the traditional FWA defined in the US in 3650-3700 MHz. Our E101 will be enabled with SAS capabilities for this US market variant.
This is our E1013 variant for 2570-2620 MHz spectrum. This spectrum is allocated in Europe to provide mobile service in the LTE TDD centre gap of the traditional B7 LTE FDD.
This is our E1014 variant for 2300-2400 MHz spectrum. This spectrum will be allocated in some regions such as Europe with as a Licensed Shared Access regulatory framework.
This is our E1013 variant for 2496-2690 MHz spectrum. This spectrum is allocated in some regions (US, Asia,…) to provide mobile service.
This is our E1012 variant for 2500-2570 MHz and 2620-2690 MHz spectrum. This is the most usual spectrum that has been licensed in Europe for LTE.
This is our E1021 variant for 1710-1785 MHz and 1805-1880 MHz spectrum. This is the traditional GSM and UMTS 1800 MHz spectrum which in many cases is being re-farmed to LTE.
Thanks to our flexible approach to the development of Small Cells we can also consider the support, on request, of other usual LTE FDD bands such as B1, B5,..
