22 Feb Accelleran and Eurona Telecom show live 3.5GHz Virtualisation and Slicing Small Cell solutions with 3.5GHz Smartphones
Barcelona, Spain, 22 February 2018 – Accelleran and Eurona Telecom are collaborating to show live demonstrations of Accelleran’s small cell software virtualisation and slicing solutions and 3.5GHz E1000 Small Cell technology at Mobile World Congress 2018. The 3.5GHz “mobile capacity band” is the truly global LTE spectrum band which enables both LTE Advanced and, before long, 5G services.
The E1000 outdoor products are fully integrated and cost-optimised small cells which are in production now and available for order globally. They are based on the fully integrated version of Accelleran Small Cell software solutions which can also be deployed in V-RAN architectures with slicing capabilities.
The first demonstration live on 3.5GHz spectrum shows the B42 variant of the E1000 series with embedded EPC option. The E1000 Small Cell is shown integrated in the City of Barcelona lamppost radome, streaming media between a local Media Server located at the very same lamppost and a commercial 3.5GHz smartphone.
The second demonstration, also live on 3.5GHz spectrum, located at the Belgian Pavilion at Hall 7G71 Console 42, shows a V-RAN implementation of Accelleran Software Solutions enabling neutral host and slicing capabilities with the E1000 Small Cell operating with different 3.5GHz devices (including smartphones) and providing differentiated services via slicing.
The E1000’s offer macro-quality performance in a small, low-power form factor and are capable of supporting the Multi-Operator and Neutral Host models. The V-RAN implementation of Accelleran Software Solutions together with the E1000 series Small Cells enable 5G use cases already in 4G and offers a smooth migration path towards 5G virtualised architectures.
“We are very excited to continue our collaboration on LTE Small Cells in 3.5GHz with an innovative operator such as Eurona Telecom, and demonstrate how Accelleran V-RAN Software Solutions together with the E1000 Series Small Cells can enable connectivity for carriers and new entrants such as infrastructure suppliers, municipalities, etc… to cost-effectively deliver great experiences to their customers now and in the upcoming 5G architectures” 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 software solutions and E1000 series products show what we can do for the industry now in 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 bring our services rapidly and cost-effectively to our customers – wherever they happen to be. We see small cells as an increasingly vital network technology to ensure coverage and capacity in SmartCities through Neutral Host models and to enable new 5G future use cases via 5G multi-layer architecture” commented Marco Guadalupi, CTO of Eurona.
Accelleran provides small cell 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 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. 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 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.
