Airvana has successfully demonstrated the end-to-end LTE femtocell solution in partnership with Hitachi Communications Technology Americas. According to company, 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 and Hitachi have partnered in the past to provide end-to-end CDMA femtocell solutions. The partnership is now extended to LTE.
“The HeNB Gateway leverages the Hitachi ER5000 MME’s proven subscriber and mobility management software and demonstrates the innovative architectural flexibility of Hitachi’s solution,” said Don Keeler, VP of PLM & Business Development, Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc.
