REACHING EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE

Reaching new subscribers is becoming more and more challenging, as only the most remote locations and lowest-ARPU subscribers remain uncovered. Consequently, operators seeking expansion face low-ROI business cases. That was before the GSM-EDGE Superfemto. NuRAN’s highly integrated picocell solution dramatically decreases both CAPEX and OPEX, turning even the most challenging sites into profitable deployments.

Applications

• In-building coverage
• Offshore platforms & ships
• Private networks
• Network-in-a-box

Simple to deploy

The GSM-EDGE SuperFemto supports GSM, GPRS, and EDGE in a variety of logical channel combinations, adapting to traffic requirements and optimally exploiting radio link resources.
Deploying a radio access network (RAN) through the help of a GSM-EDGE SuperFemto only requires minimal infrastructure as backhaul communications are performed through Ethernet, leveraging existing IP networks. Network planning is also made much simpler through the GSM-EDGE SuperFemto’s network listening capability, which allows identifying neighbouring cells and measuring their signal strengths.
The GSM-EDGE SuperFemto comes in several band options: dual-band Euro (900/1800), dual-band US (850/1900), and quad-band (quad-band version not CE compliant).

Network ready

With its Abis over IP interface, the GSM-EDGE Superfemto is able to interface natively with any IP-capable BSC. Alternatively, combined with NuRAN BSC, it provides a complete BSS ready to connect to an operator’s core network
