SpiderCloud Introduces First 3G/LTE Small Cell for Enterprises

SpiderCloud Wireless says that it has developed an enterprise small cell that can simultaneously offer UMTS and LTE service. Combining an integrated 3G/LTE baseband SoC from Broadcom with SpiderCloud’s patented software, the SCRN-310 can be software-upgraded to operate in two spectrum bands of LTE when mobile operators are ready to start re-farming existing 3G spectrum for LTE services.

The SCRN-310 is part of SpiderCloud’s Enterprise RAN (E-RAN) solution. The commercially available E-RAN system consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that can control over 100 self-organizing and multi-access 3G, Wi-Fi and LTE small cells.

“As mobile data usage migrates from 3G to LTE in the next five years, SCRN-310 provides mobile operators with the flexibility they need and protects their investment in small cells,” said Amit Jain, vice president of product management for SpiderCloud Wireless.

Our partnership with Broadcom allows us to introduce the first flexible multi-access small cell to market.”

The new SCRN-310 supports 32 3G/HSPA+ channels, 32 active LTE users and 128 LTE Connected Users and supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE). It can be software-upgraded to support two bands of LTE. SpiderCloud will be launching two models of SCRN-310 in Q2 2014, the first operating in BC2 (1900 MHz) and BC4 (AWS) and the second operating in BC1 (2.1GHz) and BC7 (2.6GHz).

Support for additional band classes is planned for the second half of 2014.
