Networks Function Virtualization (NFV), including vRAN, and Software Defined Networks (SDN), as well as working with operators that focus on 5G principles. The company continues to transition the portfolio away from legacy 2G/3G wireless technologies in line with its business and investment strategy. LTE The company’s focus is on LTE/LTE-A Overlay solutions. The company’s LTE portfolio of services allow its customers to implement LTE networks through pre-testing, design tools, remote integration and trouble shooting. Small Cells The company’s small cells portfolio is a solution targeted at operators who want to extend 3G/4G network coverage and increase capacity in home, in-building or in the public domain. Its portfolio encompasses a suite of small cell access points, including multi-standard home and enterprise small cells, as well as LTE compact outdoor metro cells and metro radios. The company also offers a 3G/4G multi-standard gateway, operations, administration and management system and a set of wireless services that address operator challenges, including access to sites, power, backhaul, and the need for network design and installation. During 2015, the company announced the commercial availability of its multi-standard home and enterprise small cells and it launched its compact outdoor metro cell, a high capacity small cell which could be deployed in challenging environments to improve LTE capacity and performance. The company also launched its new Wireless Unified Networks strategy to improve the user’s wireless experience in the home, at work, and in dense venue networks by combining existing Wi-Fi and cellular networks into one high performance network. And finally, the company announced the expansion of its Small Cell Site Certification Program with the addition of new member companies who would increase support for outdoor small cell deployment while adding expertise to solve the challenges related to indoor deployment – often in the workplace. Legacy Wireless Investment in the W-CDMA, GSM and CDMA portfolios has continued to reduce as the company’s focus R&D on the growth segments within Wireless (LTE and Small Cells), as well as on longer term network advancements, such as vRAN and 5G.

Fixed access The company’s Fixed Access division designs and develops fixed access products that allow service providers to offer ultra-broadband connectivity over digital subscriber lines (DSL) and fiber connections. Also known as fiber-to-the-x (FTTx) equipment, these products provide Internet access and other services to residential and business customers worldwide. These products also help complete the transformation of legacy networks to IP by providing IP connectivity for the ‘last mile’. In 2015, the Fixed Access division focused its R&D efforts on: Fixed access products that support both copper and fiber access. The breadth of products and technologies supported by the company’s fixed access portfolio allows service providers to deploy a mix of both copper and fiber technologies efficiently and in the most cost-effective way to suit whatever deployment model they need. High end micro-nodes portfolio with very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL2) vectoring technology. The new micro-nodes give operators the opportunity to bring fiber deeper into the network and make use of VDSL2 vectoring to boost the speed without having to invest in bringing fiber completely into the home. Continued investment in VDSL2 vectoring that increases data speeds to 100 Mbps or more and G.Fast which could increases the speed to 1G
