CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- Airvana LLC, the global market share leader in femtocells, has today announced the successful demonstration of the world's first end-to-end LTE femtocell solution in partnership with Hitachi Communications Technology Americas. The live demonstration was conducted for a Tier 1 Mobile Service Operator in September 2011.
The end-to-end solution used commercially available LTE terminals, the Airvana LTE femtocell, the Hitachi HeNB Gateway, and Hitachi's commercially available Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution. The demonstration included performance tests as well as live video streaming and internet browsing.
"Airvana has a history of innovation, with the first 3G CDMA femtocell, the first IMS-based femtocell, and the first standards-based, open femtocell management system," explained Michael Clark, Airvana's General Manager for femtocells. "Being the first vendor to successfully complete an end-to-end LTE small cell demonstration is another tremendous accomplishment and proves the readiness of our LTE femtocell network architecture, soon to be introduced into commercial LTE networks," added Clark.
