Ubiquisys Announces First Deployments of GM7 Multi-Mode Indoor Metrocell with LTE, HSPA+ and WiFi

Ubiquisys, the developer of intelligent small cells, today announced that its GM7 multi-mode cell for indoor public spaces has been selected for deployment in some of the world’s most significant small cell programmes. The new cell, which supports LTE, 3G-HSPA+ and WiFi, is specifically designed for use in a wide range of public spaces such as stores, malls, and transport hubs. The GM7 features ActiveCell® high-availability software with 99.999% uptime proven at thousands of indoor metro sites in South Korea and Japan.

Shift to indoor focus

Carriers have been actively shifting their focus towards indoor public access small cells and away from outdoor models, where they face significant deployment challenges surrounding site acquisition, backhaul and power. This is unsurprising, as more than 70% of mobile data is consumed indoors*, where there is an abundance of IP backhaul, power and motivated site owners. Indoor small cells also provide maximum re-use of valuable spectrum assets and a stronger signal for mobile users.

“Outdoor small cells have a role to play, but the problems of site acquisition costs, backhaul and power coupled with the majority of data usage occurring inside is making indoor metrocells more compelling to carriers,” said Chris Gilbert, CEO Ubiquisys. “Indoor small cells have clear technical and economic advantages, provide a natural integration point with WiFi, and can be fully deployed in just three months. That’s why carriers are increasingly making them the first choice for multiplying data capacity and coverage.”

Carrier-grade multi-mode flexibility with Texas Instruments

The Ubiquisys GM7 uses Texas Instruments’ high performance TMS320TCI6614 chipset solution providing simultaneous LTE and 3G-HSPA, which Ubiquisys ActiveCell® software can dynamically balance according to demand. The underlying KeyStone architecture reflects TI’s long experience as a leader in base station infrastructure, with specific features designed to handle the hundreds of data users these cells will serve. These include specific hardware acceleration for Layer2, including queuing engines and powerful Direct Memory Access (DMA), separate Layer3 processing and a dedicated network processing engine to handle complex backhaul packet processing.

Lowest total cost of ownership

“Together with our Advisory Panel of mobile operators, we recently conducted a study into the total cost of ownership (TCO), for serving mobile data to indoor public spaces, comparing indoor small cells, outdoor small cells and macro cells,” said Joe Madden, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts. “The figures show that the indoor small cell TCO is approximately half of the outdoor small cell TCO, and five times lower than the macrocell TCO for each MB of data served.”

ActiveCell® high-availability software

The GM7 features the latest Ubiquisys ActiveCell® high-availability software in addition to the proven ActiveRadio® adaptive interference management and ActiveSON® self-organising network capabilities. ActiveCell® high-availability software has now been proven in thousands of indoor metro sites in South Korea and Japan, delivering 99.999% availability and parity with macro network features and KPIs.
