Airspan and b-lite Successfully Deploying LTE Technology in Aalst - Belgium
BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- Airspan Networks
Inc., a leading provider of 4G LTE solutions, announced today the
successful commercial deployment of its LTE solution in Band42 with
b-lite, a leading 4G Service provider in Belgium.
The solution deployed is Airspan's compact eNodeB and EPC technology,
allowing b-lite to take immediate and full advantage of LTE
technology, increasing their network capacity and coverage. Airspan's
Air4G compact eNodeB provides the same effective cell coverage as a
traditional Macro eNodeB at much lower power consumption, lower
footprint and lower total cost of ownership. The solution is fully
compliant with latest 3GPP LTE standards and supports multiple types
of LTE terminals.
"We are very pleased to deploy and demonstrate Airspan's LTE solution
capabilities in a dense, urban environment in the heart of Europe,"
said Henrik Smith-Petersen, President, Global Sales, adding, "Airspan
is fully supportive to b-lite in their business model and expansion
plans where small cells and small cell backhaul solutions will play a
significant role moving forward."
"We are very excited to be migrating to our first TD-LTE system in
Belgium using 4G spectrum," said Max Heilbron, b-lite's CEO. "We are
working with Airspan because we believe they have the expertise and
experience we need to deliver the best solution. Our combined
expertise together with our spectrum will give a significant boost to
the mobile broadband availability in Belgium. Our 4G technology will
be offered to residential and business customers and will also be a
great asset for any mobile broadband with a Quality of Service
guarantee for projects enabling Wi-Fi on public transportation."
Airspan's small cell portfolio provides a comprehensive set of
solutions for the deployment of LTE small cells in a variety of use
cases in outdoor and indoor locations. AirSynergy and Air4G represent
