Radisys and Telum Announce Successful Integration of an eNodeB in Russia with Compact Evolved Packet Core in California, Delivering an End-to-End LTE Network Solution Aerospace and Defense sectors' shift to private LTE networks calls for interoperable, multi-vendor solutions
Radisys(r) Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, and Telum, the Russian leader in military and professional radio communications systems development, today announced successful integration of Radisys' Compact Evolved Packet Core (EPC) with Telum's compact LTE base station (eNodeB). Aerospace and Defense (A&D) and public safety contractors are turning to LTE to leverage the benefits of higher bandwidth, carrier-grade quality and proven, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. The Telum and Radisys interoperability test demonstrates how equipment, based on industry 3GPP standards, can interoperate in a private LTE network.
HILLSBORO, OR, U.S. – AUGUST 26, 2013 – Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless infrastructure solutions, and Telum, the Russian leader in military and professional radio communications systems development, today announced successful integration of Radisys’ Compact Evolved Packet Core (EPC) with Telum’s compact LTE base station (eNodeB). Aerospace and Defense (A&D) and public safety contractors are turning to LTE to leverage the benefits of higher bandwidth, carrier-grade quality and proven, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. The Telum and Radisys interoperability test demonstrates how equipment, based on industry 3GPP standards, can interoperate in a private LTE network.
To date, professional communications networks have not kept pace with the advances in wireless communications in the commercial sector. Older generations of radio technology lag behind LTE in terms of speed, power and redundancy. LTE offers numerous advantages for private networks, including higher speeds and lower latency. The all-IP network is standards-based, allowing the military to take advantage of a large ecosystem of vendors for the radio and core networks, keeping network costs affordable and enabling interoperability. In addition, A&D contractors can leverage the broad availability of LTE smart phones in the market, replacing the clunky and expensive handsets associated with legacy private networks.
For the interoperability test, Radisys’ Compact EPC was deployed remotely in San Diego, California and integrated with Telum’s eNodeB in Moscow, Russia, showcasing the ability to integrate an eNodeB remotely from the EPC.
“We are pleased to partner with Radisys, its product exceeded our expectations not only in terms of ease of integration of the solution with an eNodeB to deliver an end-to-end LTE network, but also due to the impressive performance,” said Pavel Boyko, CEO, Telum LLC. “Radisys’ Compact EPC perfectly complements our high-performance compact eNodeB and allows us to deliver outstanding end-to-end private LTE infrastructure solutions that meet the bandwidth and quality of service needs of our customers.”
“Telum is exactly the kind of partner that we seek to enable the adoption of LTE for private networks,” said Keate Despain, vice president and general manager, Platforms, Radisys. “Radisys’ solutions are already deployed in LTE networks by two of the top ten U.S. defense contractors, and we are in development with three of the top 20 contractors in A&D and public safety around the world. Our field-proven LTE technology enables faster deployment times and industry-leading performance, and we look forward to continuing to work with Telum as they serve this growing market.”
Telum will demonstrate the integrated end-to-end LTE network solution at EADS stand (Hall F3 stand N°A1) at the MAKS 2013 International Aviation and Space Salon, running Aug. 27 through Sept. 1 in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region.
