(This product contains MindSpeed)
HILLSBORO, Ore. -- 9/17/2013 Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, today announced that Z-Com, a leading global wireless solution provider, has selected Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB small cell software solution to enable its small cell LTE-TDD (Time Division Duplex) network deployments in China. Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB will enable Z-Com to deliver ultra-low cost and low power, high performance Enterprise domain small cells to its mobile operator customers serving dense urban environments, adding needed bandwidth and coverage.
Mobile operators in China are turning to LTE-TDD small cell technology to alleviate the strain on their networks, driven by the growth in mobile video and the pervasiveness of tablets and smart phones. In the mobile network, LTE-TDD leverages unpaired spectrum allowing downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) traffic to travel in both directions on the same frequency band. As most mobile users download content rather than upload content, Radisys’ LTE-TDD small cell solution provides a cost effective approach for operators to add capacity to congested areas and make more efficient use of their available spectrum.
September 17, 2013-- Radisys(R) Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, today announced that Chief Technology Officer Manish Singh has been appointed for the third consecutive year to the Executive Board of the Small Cell Forum, the independent industry and operator association that supports small cell deployment worldwide. Radisys brings to the Small Cell Forum a history of small cell industry leadership. The company's Trillium(R) TOTALeNodeB(TM) software was deployed in the world's first LTE small cell networks with South Korea Telecom and Korea Telecom, and earlier this year Radisys partnered with Airspan to deliver the world's first commercial LTE-Advanced small cell solution. Radisys is currently engaged in 15 active small cell trials and deployments around the world.
"Manish has been a proven leader on the Executive Board for the past two years, bringing strategic insight and direction to help shape our key initiatives to enable small cell deployments," said Gordon Mansfield, Chairman, Small Cell Forum. "Many congratulations to Radisys; this selection is a high accolade from our industry-leading member companies. I look forward to a continuation of small cell industry leadership from Radisys in the months to come."
"As mobile operators seek to augment their networks' capacity and coverage to meet subscriber demand, they continue to turn to Heterogeneous Networks, or HetNets, adding small cell technology to their macro networks," said Manish Singh, CTO. "We continue to see tremendous demand for our small cell technology, and this recognition by the Small Cell Forum membership for three consecutive years is a testament to Radisys' industry leadership in enabling small cell deployments."
Radisys' small cell software has proven critical to the advancement of small cell deployments around the world. Radisys' TOTALeNodeB solution enables customers to leverage one software solution that can support all small cell deployments across the network, from residential cells that support up to eight users to Pico cells that support 100+ users. This scalability enables rapid deployment.
The Small Cell Forum supports the wide-scale adoption of small cells and has more than 145 members including 67 operators representing more than 2.92 billion mobile subscribers -- 47 percent of the global total -- as well as telecom hardware and software vendors, content providers and innovative start-ups.
