Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. (Hitachi CTA) today
announced that the company is partnering with Contela, Inc. to deliver
an end-to-end LTE Small Cell solution. The solution leverages the
Hitachi ER5000 Small Cell Gateway and Contela's LTE Small Cell Access
Point for enterprise and public applications. The combined solution
ensures stable high speed service, and supports faster deployment of
high-speed LTE network coverage.
An LTE Small Cell, also known as a Home eNode B (HeNB) or a femto cell,
provides LTE base-station functionality in a very small, cost-effective
form factor, ensuring the highest data capacity and RF coverage for
business and home users. In wireless networks where data demands are
constantly outpacing existing infrastructure, the Hitachi/Contela LTE
Small Cell solution enables the efficient handling of data traffic while
minimizing the signaling load presented to the existing EPC elements in
the core network.
Hitachi CTA has developed and deployed telecommunications equipment in
extremely competitive and advanced network environments and continues
this tradition by delivering a leading edge end-to-end LTE small cell
solution. The Hitachi solution provides wireless operators with an LTE
Small Cell with field-proven stability and a wealth of platform features
that incorporate years of learning from some of the largest LTE macro
and small cell deployments in the world.
"The Small Cell Gateway leverages the Hitachi ER5000 MME's proven
subscriber and mobility management software and demonstrates the
innovative architectural flexibility of Hitachi's solution," said Don
Keeler, VP of PLM & Business Development, Hitahi Communication
Technologies America, Inc. "We are pleased to provide this product as
part of the end-to-end LTE Small Cell solution with Contela."
"Contela is delighted to join with Hitachi CTA to provide our
field-proven Small Cell product and management system as part of this
solution," said Jang Ahn Kwon, Contela CMO & Vice President. "Service
providers can now quickly and easily provide the LTE services that their
subscribers want, and ensure maximum performance to the end user."
Hitachi CTA will be providing private demonstrations of the LTE Small
Cell solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. Wireless
operators interested in viewing a private demonstration may contact
Hitachi CTA before the show.
