Tarana Wireless will be soon launching a universal small cell backhaul solution that meets the needs of mobile carriers and also can be deployed in all places where small cells are located.
According to officials, this offering will be effective in making large scale small cell adoption easier. The new solution is expected to be a true metro scale solution featuring dedicated high capacity per wireless link with optimum performance even as small cell density increases.
Steve Sifferman, president and chief executive officer said, “I am excited and pleased by the tremendous interest and positive feedback we’ve received from mobile carriers worldwide regarding Tarana’s unique products, and we look forward to being a key enabler of small cell deployments. We expect carrier trials over the coming months to confirm Tarana as the new standard for small cell backhaul across the industry.”
Mobile carriers have to meet the demand for mobile data capacity which is growing rapidly due to the increase in smart mobile devices and bandwidth-hungry multimedia applications. This has led about 86 percent of carriers to adopt small cells to increase macro cell capacity. But legacy technologies are not able to provide an optimum universal scalable backhaul solution.
Dale Branlund, chief technology officer at Tarana said, “While other vendors have claimed NLoS and high bandwidth links, the market has confirmed that no small cell backhaul product to date provides the range, capacity, link availability, and scale carriers need to address the exponential growth in wireless data demand.”
However the new Tarana universal small cell backhaul solution will be able to support a complete range of non-line-of-sight (NLoS) to line-of-sight (LoS) operations making deployment flexible. The spectral efficiency and interference immunity help reduce operational costs besides enhancing link reliability. The Tarana solution can be easily deployed needing less planning and time.
Carriers will benefit a lot from the flexibility of the solution which allows the deployment of small cells anywhere without compromising backhaul capacity or coverage. As a carrier class product, this innovation ensures ubiquitous coverage, high capacity and scalability and cost effectiveness, said officials.
A recent Infonetics Research report entitled Outdoor Small Cell Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market Outlook reveals the fastest growing segment of the small cell backhaul market -- outdoor small cell backhaul -- in 8 discrete categories: the three forms of wire line (copper, fiber, DSL) and the five forms of wireless (licensed and unlicensed millimeter wave and point-to-point, point-to-multi-point, and non-line-of-sight, or NLOS, microwave). The report tracks and forecasts outdoor small cell backhaul equipment revenue, units, connections (aka links) and small cell sites by medium (copper, fiber, air).
