Airvana Introduces Revolutionary Small Cell System for Enterprises and Public Spaces
|By Business Wire
|June 10, 2014 04:00 AM EDT
a leading provider of small cell solutions, today announced OneCell™,
an LTE small cell system for enterprise and public spaces. OneCell
delivers consistently superior LTE performance throughout a wide array
of venues from office buildings to hospitals to airports, with the
economics and simplicity of managed Wi-Fi.
Data usage on mobile devices is exploding, particularly indoors. The
Small Cell Forum and numerous analysts have cited that 80% of mobile
broadband usage occurs indoors. However, today’s enterprise small cell
solutions are limited to a single wireless provider and suffer from
inter-cell interference and cell border issues. OneCell addresses these
limitations by providing a multi-operator small cell solution with up to
a 10x performance improvement, at a fraction of the cost of distributed
antenna systems (DAS).
Based on cloud RAN principles, the OneCell system consists of a Baseband
Controller and multiple Radio Points. Together they form a single
“super” cell that delivers consistently high quality LTE service across
indoor spaces ranging from 50,000 to 1,000,000 square feet without
handovers or inter-cell interference issues. OneCell supports
plug-and-play deployment over standard Ethernet cabling and switches,
eliminating the need for proprietary networks or expensive optical
links. Further, its unique small cell cloud RAN architecture
dramatically simplifies radio frequency planning and integration with
wireless macro networks.
“Operators and building owners look for cost-effective, IT-friendly ways
to deliver small cell capabilities in enterprise and public space
facilities,” said Ken Rehbehn, principal analyst with Yankee Group. “An
approach like Airvana’s—which leverages standard Ethernet networks,
hides complexity, isolates signaling activity, and aims to make a virtue
out of small cell overlap in dense network environments—promises
substantial capacity and performance gains.”
By eliminating handovers and interference zones, OneCell also provides
the low latency needed for voice over LTE (VoLTE). More than 35
operators around the world, including AT&T, Verizon, and NTT DOCOMO, are
in varying stages of VoLTE service implementation, with many of these
expected to make initial deployments within the next year.
“There’s a clear interest among operators in serving indoor enterprise
environments with scalable, distributed solutions that are also
cost-effective. OneCell is well-distinguished from solutions that
address this space using macrocell baseband units, and is particularly
attractive compared to the cost of traditional Distributed Antenna
Systems,” said Ed Gubbins, senior analyst with Current Analysis.
“Airvana has an established track record and credibility in small cells,
and solutions such as OneCell that use standard Ethernet LANs in these
scenarios will be compelling to operators and enterprises alike.”
Principal benefits of OneCell include:
Consistent, High-Quality User Experience—Eliminates handovers
and cell-to-cell interference to ensure uniform, high quality service.
Multi-Operator—Common Radio Point hardware, deployed across a
shared Ethernet infrastructure, supports all wireless providers.
Dynamic Capacity Allocation—As users move around a building, the
system automatically allocates capacity where it is needed.
Simple and Economical—Plug and play setup over standard
Ethernet networks, and vastly simplified radio frequency planning and
Investment Protection—OneCell will support LTE Advanced
features including Carrier Aggregation, CoMP, and multi-user MIMO via
“Providing high-quality enterprise LTE user experience and simple,
economical deployments are no longer mutually exclusive,” said Vedat
Eyuboglu, co-founder and CTO, Airvana. “Mobile operators can now add 4G
to their large base of in-building deployments without having to fund
costly upgrades to existing 2G/3G DAS systems. The strong interest we’re
receiving from mobile operators and enterprises is testament to the need
for this new and better approach.”

Airvana will demonstrate OneCell in booth #14 at the Small Cells World
Summit taking place June 10-12, 2014 in London, and at the DAS and Small
Cells Congress taking place June 17-18, 2014 in Las Vegas.
OneCell is available now for trials, and will be generally available in
Airvana enables mobile operators to deliver
dramatically better service to subscribers in the most challenging and
high-value environments: offices, public spaces, and in the home.
Airvana is the global small cell market share leader. The company’s
innovative 3G and LTE small cells ensure “five bar” coverage and
superior data performance. Airvana is a founding member of the Small
Cell Forum and has 14 years of experience providing commercial wireless
equipment to over 90 operators globally. For more information, visit www.airvana.com.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
