SpiderCloud Wireless Announces Commercial Availability of LTE Unlicensed Small Cells System

SpiderCloud Wireless announced the commercial availability of SpiderCloud’s Enterprise RAN (E-RAN) system supporting LTE-U for enterprises and public venues. The system combines the Qualcomm® FSM™ small cell platform with SpiderCloud’s market-proven scalable small cell systems. The Enterprise RAN with LTE-U introduces a new Radio Node, the SCRN-320, and operating system enhancements to the Services Node. As part of commercialization, the SCRN-320 successfully passed the testing regime defined by Wi-Fi Alliance in the LTE-U Coexistence Test Plan. This testing, in addition to FCC approval, assures enterprise and venue owners that LTE-U and Wi-Fi co-existence has been independently verified. The SCRN-320 features were: LTE Band 2 (PCS) or Band 4 (AWS) licensed radio; UNII-1 and 3 Bands unlicensed radio for LTE-U Supplemental Downlink; Onboard Wi-Fi baseband chipset to maximize SON benefits and co-existence with other Wi-Fi or LTE-U/LAA devices; 64 active LTE users; Power over Ethernet (PoE+) attachment to Ethernet fronthaul network; and Software upgradable to LTE-LAA. The Wi-Fi baseband chipset integrated in SCRN-320 enables it to not only sense energy in the 5 GHz (called “energy detection”) band but also to detect Wi-Fi preamble messages (called “preamble detection”), and to inform Wi-Fi access points about SCRN-320’s intent to use the channel. This technique offers superior co-existence with Wi-Fi system than alternatives. The SpiderCloud Services Node assigns unlicensed channels to SCRN-320 using proprietary SON algorithms that minimize interference between LTE small cells and Wi-Fi access points. The Services Node uses SCRN-320 radio nodes to dynamically sense the Wi-Fi environment throughout the building, and uses this information to centrally assign unlicensed channels to LTE small cells. Centralized channel assignment is estimated to boost total system capacity by 20% compared to autonomous small cells making local decisions. SpiderCloud plans to introduce versions of the SCRN-320 that support licensed bands for European and Asian markets in the second half of 2017 along with LTE-LAA support. The SpiderCloud SCRN-320 system utilizes the Qualcomm Technologies FSM99xx chipset, enabling support for LTE in unlicensed spectrum as well as best-in-class power consumption and integration for enterprise-grade small cells. FSM also exceeds 3GPP Release 13 requirements for coexistence with Wi-Fi, featuring energy and preamble detection, in addition to Listen Before Talk (LBT).

SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc. Announces First Dual-Mode CBRS System

SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc. is extending its LTE solution to the CBRS band. The company is introducing the enterprise small cell system that simultaneously offers LTE services on licensed spectrum and on the 3.5 GHz CBRS band. The company’s dual-mode (licensed and CBRS) system enables mobile operators and neutral host operators to build a footprint of CBRS small cells before CBRS capable connected devices are widely available. The company’s dual-mode small cells will offer LTE service in the licensed band on day one, and CBRS radios can be turned on via software when the business case permits. Dual-mode drives the overall LTE handset ecosystem as it removes the uncertainty about the widespread availability of CBRS networks. The CBRS network slice can be used either as a part of a single operator network, shared between multiple operators, or as a private enterprise network.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Spidercloud Wireless, Inc. Announce Development of Small Cells System for Enterprises and Venues Supporting LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum

Qualcomm Incorporated through its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and SpiderCloud Wireless, announced the planned development of LTE-U, LTE-LAA, and MulteFire™ systems for enterprises and public venues. This development combines Qualcomm Technologies’ small cell baseband chipsets and leadership in LTE-U, LAA and MulteFire technologies with SpiderCloud’s market-proven scalable small cell systems. These SpiderCloud systems will be among the first to seamlessly deliver LTE capacity over unlicensed spectrum in large indoor environments, such as offices, university campuses, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers and sport venues. They will be based on SpiderCloud’s Enterprise RAN (E-RAN) architecture that includes a Services Node controlling up to 100 self-organizing LTE small cells, capable of delivering coverage and capacity in indoor locations as large as 1.5 million square feet. Verizon will trial SpiderCloud’s LTE-U system in the third quarter of 2016. SpiderCloud’s systems are enabled with Qualcomm Technologies’ latest LTE technology including aggregation of licensed and unlicensed spectrum on Qualcomm Technologies’ highly integrated FSM ™ SoC platforms, which include the FSM9900. The FSM9900 is a 28nm small cell SoC that supports multimode operation (LTE, UMTS) and LTE-Advanced features, such as LTE carrier aggregation. It also supports features such as digital pre-distortion and others designed to reduce power consumption, helping enable full-featured small cells for indoor deployments. SpiderCloud expects to utilize the FSM9900 across other products on its portfolio. The collaboration will enable a robust long-term roadmap for dense and scalable small cell deployments, including LAA, MulteFire and neutral host LTE solutions. To support its development and commercialization of MulteFire, SpiderCloud has joined the MulteFire Alliance.
