Verizon Wireless taps SpiderCloud for 4G small cell systems
Small cell system to enable in-building mobile services for Verizon Wireless public access venues and business customers.
SpiderCloud Wireless (San Jose, CA), a provider of scalable small cell Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) systems, announced that it has begun working with Verizon Wireless, the largest 4G LTE mobile operator in the United States, to supply scalable small cell systems for its Verizon Wireless business customers.
SpiderCloud Wireless claims it is the first company to offer mobile operators a highly scalable small cell system for LAN deployment of reliable mobile services indoors for enterprise customers of any size. The E-RAN 3G system is already commercially proven for three years, adds the company. Other SpiderCloud Wireless customers include Vodafone UK, Vodafone Netherlands and leading mobile operators across several continents.
The E-RAN consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that can control up to 100 self-organizing, multi-access small cells, providing reliable coverage and capacity for enterprise and venues of up to 1.5 million square feet, requiring only one system. An E-RAN system can be installed in just days using an enterprise Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) as a managed service by a mobile operator's network, adds SpiderCloud. The company offers a portfolio of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Radio Nodes operating in 3G (single band), and software upgradeable, dual-band 3G+4G and 4G+4G small cells as part of the system.
"Working with Verizon Wireless's key regions and partners, we will rapidly deploy scalable small cell systems to meet mobility needs for public access venues and enterprise customers," said Michael Gallagher, SpiderCloud Wireless CEO. "With Verizon Wireless, we will continue to innovate and demonstrate to customers what is truly possible with in-building mobility systems."
