SAN DIEGO -- AirHop Communications, a developer of systems software that enables the deployment of high performance and highly differentiated 4G wireless networks, today announced eSON™ (evolved Self-Organized Networking), the first solution that solves the installation, operation and performance challenges of dense, small cell deployments for 4G/LTE networks.

The explosive adoption of video-enabled smart phones has created a tidal wave of data traffic and exposed the capacity constraints of 3G networks, creating an urgency to deploy higher-capacity 4G networks. In order to achieve the full capacity promised by the standards, 4G networks will require a fundamentally different topology, relying on a dense mix of smaller cells including, microcells, picocells and femtocells. This approach will expose the network to significant interference and frequency reuse issues and will make network planning and operations much more complex and costly. Without new technology to deal with these issues, 4G networks cannot live up to their promise.

“AirHop recognized early on that small cell footprints were needed to address the capacity demands of 4G network deployment and the result of this topological approach would introduce massive complexity and network performance challenges,” said Yan Hui, founder and CEO of AirHop Communications. “We believe that eSON™ solves these critical problems and will play a vital role in the successful deployment of 4G networks by enabling infrastructure vendors and carriers to deliver differentiated networks and services cost-effectively and with confidence.”
