Cooperation delivers wireless solutions for private networks
Wireless Telecom Group company, CommAgility, has been chosen by Harris to help Harris deliver LTE Small Cell base stations and terminal products for private network operators. Harris’ licensing of CommAgility’s software technology and customisation services allows Harris to quickly and reliably address the needs of its customers. Private networks serve specialised communications needs in the energy, maritime, aviation, security and public safety sectors.
LTE 4G technology brings wireless broadband to these specialised markets, enabling the introduction of new features and enhanced services. Investments in the public safety sector alone are forecasted at $2bn annually by the year 2020.
James Rhoa, Senior Communications Engineer at Harris, said: “CommAgility’s offering of a complete software product portfolio covering both terminals and base stations was a critical criterion for Harris.” Rhoa continued: “Since we started working with CommAgility in 2014, we have also relied on its LTE expertise to adapt the products to our special requirements, making CommAgility truly a one-stop-shop experience.”
Edward Young, Vice President and General Manager at CommAgility, said: “Private networks often have special requirements or conditions under which the products must work, which present challenges for developers. The combined talent and products at Harris and CommAgility are ideally suited to address these demands.”
Harris uses CommAgility’s full range of software products:
- SmallCellPHY LTE physical layer for Texas Instruments’ small cell SoCs
- SmallCellSTACK LTE protocol stack
- SmallCellSPECTRUM advanced scheduler
- MobilePHY LTE physical layer for terminals
- MobileSTACK LTE protocol stack for terminals
