ITASCA, Ill., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --L-3 and Lemko Corp fly an
ultra-light airborne 4G LTE SwarmNetwork™ for tactical air to ground broadband
communications. The X5™ aerial demonstration proved that the same high-speed
data infrastructure available in fixed mounted or dismounted configurations on
the ground can be further supported from the air. Lemko's solution surpasses
traditional LTE coverage bubbles by the ODC SwarmNetwork™ providing an ad-hoc
LTE network with roaming, hand-off and survivability between nodes. A single
ultra-light Swarming LTE Node provides a bubble of – voice, VoLTE, SMS,
high-speed data, and video call – coverage. Multiple SwarmNetwork™ Nodes form
a canopy of In-Band Mesh Network for larger coverage area or higher capacity.
Lemko's SwarmNetwork™ enables a unique approach that virtualizes the EPC and
IMS platform at each eNodeB. This places the mobility anchor at the wireless
mobile broadband network's edge, eliminating the need for data to traverse to
a centralized core via tunneling. Lemko Empowers, Unburdens and Protects our
"The airborne LTE swarming capabilities demonstrated with L-3 certainly show
that we are able to quickly deploy mobile broadband in the remotest areas in
support of our war fighters or first responders. This will certainly
significantly enhance their mission performance capabilities," says Chris
White, Executive Vice President Sales, Lemko Corporation.
