Airspan and Radisys Deliver World’s First LTE-Advanced Small Cell Solution

Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, and Airspan, a leading provider of broadband wireless access networks, today announced the development of the world’s first commercial LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) small cell solution. As subscribers continue to demand more bandwidth and coverage, LTE-A enables operators to take advantage of increased aggregate throughput, enhanced cell edge performance, and better interference mitigation and spectrum reuse. Radisys and Airspan will be demonstrating the LTE-A small cell solution at Mobile World Congress, February 25-28 in Barcelona.

Airspan’s LTE-A capable AirSynergy 4G leverages Radisys’ Trillium® TOTALeNodeB small cell software, which has been enhanced to include key LTE-A features. AirSynergy 4G is an all-in-one compact outdoor Pico Base Station supporting LTE-Advanced. Radisys and Airspan augmented TOTALeNodeB with key LTE-A features including soft-frequency re-use via distributed eICIC, Almost Blanking Subframe and range extension.

“Radisys is our long-time, trusted partner as we’ve leveraged the company’s Trillium software and professional services for our small cell and macrocell products,” said Paul Senior, CTO, Airspan. “Collaborating on the first LTE-Advanced small cell solution is a natural extension of this partnership. Leveraging Trillium TOTALeNodeB for AirSynergy 4G accelerates our ability to be first to market.”

“Our Trillium TOTALeNodeB solution has won many industry awards, but our professional services team is just as critical in enabling Airspan’s rapid market entry,” said Manish Singh, CTO, Radisys. “Our highly skilled team works with Airspan on feature customization and platform integration and verification, ensuring state-of-the-art technology solutions. We’re excited to partner with Airspan on the first commercial LTE-A small cell solution.”

Radisys’ Trillium TOTALeNodeB software includes the necessary Radio Resource Management (RRM), Self-Organizing Network (SON) and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) functionality required for rapid deployment, and is built on top of the proven Trillium LTE protocol stacks. It provides Telecom Equipment Manufacturers with a complete, integrated LTE eNodeB that is verified across the leading small cell system on a chip (SoC) platforms from Radisys’ premier silicon partners.

LTE-A Small Cell Demonstration at Mobile World Congress

Radisys and Airspan will be demonstrating the new AirSynergy at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 25-28 at Airspan’s Stand D90, Hall 6. The live demonstration will feature the following key LTE-A features:

  • Soft-Frequency Reuse (SFR)
  • X2-based Automatic Neighbor Relations (ANR)
  • Automatic X2 Communications based on ANR
  • Distributed eICIC using SFR
  • Almost Blanking Subframe (ABS)
