Enterprise small cell startup SpiderCloud says it is shipping its first dual-mode 4G and 3G unit this month and getting ready for trials of a dual-band LTE node this summer.

The SCRN-310 dual-band 3G/LTE Radio Node will start shipping this June, said SpiderCloud Wireless . The startup uses radio "nodes" that are managed by a Services Node (SCSN) that SpiderCloud says can control over 100 small cells. (See SpiderCloud Eyes LTE Enterprise Small Cells in 2014 and SpiderCloud's New Web: Dual-Mode 4G LTE.)

The The SCRN-310 supports 32 3G/HSPA+ channels, 32 active LTE users and voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), as well as numerous LTE frequencies.

The company will follow that up with a dual-band LTE version of the same product. SpiderCloud says it will start trials "later this summer."

Re: tipping point
There has been so much press regarding the coming of Small Cells fueled by MNO's (AT&T, Verizon, and Softbank) and the OEMs (ALU, Ericsson, Huawei, NSN, TE, Corning, Commscope, SpiderCloud, Airvana, Fujitsu, ip.access, public wireless, dali, etc). What is becoming evident is that although Small Cells are surging what is evident is there are many dots that are still being connected. Case and point although SpiderCloud is promoting a current HSPA/LTE solution with a future dual band 4G/LTE solution this may not address large venue neutral host applications.

We are getting there but until more 3GPP release 10 - 12 features are implemented and validated in the MNO labs; we are a few years away from the peak Small Cell deployments. I think this is not necessarily bad news as it is opening the door for more innovation enabling better value added solutions.

tipping point
I predict this will be the tipping point for multimode small cells in the US, just as AT&T's announcement was for VoLTE...Who will be next? Ericsson? ALU?

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
