Tarana Joins Nokia Networks™ Microwave Backhaul Ecosystem of Partners as Key Provider for Point-To-Multipoint and Non-Line-Of-Sight Solutions

Tarana is joining Nokia Networks™ Microwave Backhaul Ecosystem of partners as a key provider for point-to-multipoint and non-line-of-sight solutions. As continued growth in subscriber demand for the mobile internet drives new rounds of network densification, the behind-the-scenes matter of small-cell backhaul has become increasingly important and challenging. Nokia's partnership approach to backhaul is designed to support its customers with a wide range of innovative, trusted, and best solutions that can be tailored to specific operator needs and preferences while delivering the performance gains required in this key element of the network. Non-line-of-sight (NLoS) backhaul solutions, in particular, are becoming much more critical to success as operators increase radio infrastructure density to meet concentrated demand in urban areas. Mobile network planners report that the majority of these target deployment sites are difficult if not impossible to reach cost-effectively with fiber or line-of-sight (LoS) wireless backhaul. Unfortunately, early industry attempts at NLoS backhaul have disappointed, given implementations incapable of handling the simultaneous challenges of severe multipath, pervasive interference, and constantly changing conditions inherent to the application. Unreliable, low performance in real-world NLoS trials left many operators deeply concerned about the viability of the entire solution category and without a practical backhaul solution for a good portion of their deployment plans. Over the past year Tarana has addressed this issue, by showing in a number of tier 1 operator trials that an expertly-designed combination of many antennas, ample dedicated processing power, a suite of advanced algorithms, and highly efficient physical implementation can maintain full-rate links with perfect reliability in a wide range of completely-blocked and rapidly-changing urban conditions.

Tarana Wireless and SIAE Microelettronica Backhaul Key to Vodafone Netherlands Success at Sail Amsterdam 2015

SIAE Microelettronica and Tarana Wireless announced their stunning success at enabling full LTE coverage for Vodafone Netherlands at SAIL Amsterdam 2015, under what most would consider completely impossible conditions. Held every 5 years in Amsterdam since 1975, SAIL has become the maritime community’s premier global gathering, setting new participation records with each event. This year’s massive party, running from Wednesday through Sunday last week, was attended by an estimated 2.5 million people, 44 class-A tall ships hailing from all over the world, and thousands of smaller craft. Given today’s obsessively connected culture, mobile operators were understandably concerned about the event’s challenge to their networks’ capacity and responsiveness, particularly with the unprecedented density of demand out in the harbor itself. Vodafone Netherlands, as an extension of their ongoing installation of small cells supported by Tarana and SIAE Microelettronica, deployed a solution to the harbor problem that would have been totally infeasible without fundamental advances in NLoS technology. To bring their LTE network capacity to wherever demand was most intense, the Vodafone team, collaborating with SIAE Microelettronica as prime contractor and Tarana as NLoS product provider, rolled a cell-on-wheels truck onto a utility craft that navigated the harbor throughout the event. This enabled rapid, dynamic network augmentation as boating crowds gathered around and moved along with the tall-ship stars of the show. Given Vodafone’s extensive experience with the SIAE Microelettronica and Tarana backhaul solution, they were confident they could achieve reliable wireless backhaul from this constantly bobbing and swaying mobile platform — attempting a feat most cellular radio and microwave backhaul engineers would consider foolhardy at best.
