Tecom launches complete range of small cells powered by Ubiquisys Femto-Engine Software
Intelligent small cells that change the economics of coverage and capacity for residential, enterprise and public access markets
Tecom Co., Ltd, Taiwan's leading telecommunications equipment maker, today announced the availability of a complete range of UMTS small cells, all powered by Femto-Engine intelligent cell software from Ubiquisys. The range includes residential, enterprise and outdoor cells.
Until now, vendors have split their small cell portfolio, typically using low-cost femtocell technology for residential, and using traditionally-engineered picocell/microcell technology for enterprise and public spaces. Tecom’s products are different because the whole range is based on self-organising femtocell technology, which dramatically reduces the deployment and management costs, especially for enterprise and public space/outdoor cells.
The range consists of:
- FC1020 Residential : a compact 8 call / 14.4Mbps HSPA femtocell with outputs of 10 or 20mW. Features Ubiquisys ActiveRadioTM technology for fully automatic, real-time interference management.
- FC1060 Enterprise : a 16 call HSPA femtocell with outputs of 100 or 250mW. Can be desk, wall or ceiling mounted. In addition to ActiveRadio, it features Ubiquisys ActiveSONTM technology, enabling femtocells to self-organise to create a seamless and dynamic grid of enterprise coverage.
- FC1080 Public space and outdoor : a 16 call HSPA small cell with outputs of 250mW or 1W. IP67 enclosure can be pole, wall, vertically or horizontally mounted. Features Ubiquisys ActiveRadioTM for automatic, real-time coordination with the macro network.
Michael Kwan, CEO of Tecom said, “Tecom has a formidable reputation for product innovation in carrier, enterprise,and consumer markets. In little more than a year we have developed the broadest range of intelligent small cells. The combination of Tecom equipment innovation and Ubiquisys software intelligence creates a compelling solution for mobile operators. ”
“Small Cell is a broad category that includes both traditional and modern technology. By automating traditional radio planning, Ubiquisys technology has changed the economics of coverage and capacity forever - not just for residential, but for enterprise and public spaces as well,” said Chris Gilbert, CEO Ubiquisys. “We’re delighted that Tecom has incorporated Ubiquisys intelligence into its leading-edge range of small cells.”
