Small cells provider ip.access will announce its approach to small cells using licensed spectrum for the enterprise and indoor access, analytics and IoT market when it outlines its Viper2020 strategy at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
“Viper2020 is another industry first from ip.access,” said Malcolm Gordon, CEO. “After 15 years of small cell innovations, 10 industry firsts, and approaching 1.5 million small cells shipped, we now bring it all together with a flexible cloud and uniform access platform opening up new market opportunities with a rock-bottom TCO. Incorporating IoT access with regular voice and data provides the 100% coverage foundation on which key 2020 growth opportunities depend.”
Viper2020 is a flexible cloud platform for management of licensed spectrum, neutral host, IoT small cells and presenceSensors with support for multi-operator access, analytics and IoT connected devices. ip.access’ Viper2020 common platform is designed to lower cost and complexity for service providers and enterprise partners alike.
• Cloud platform with virtualised gateways for secure access and routing of all traffic and analytics data between small cells, Wi-Fi access points, presenceSensors™ and service provider networks
• Low cost and proven portfolio of 2G, 3G and 4G TDD/FDD indoor and outdoor small cells
• Portfolio of neutral host 4G + IoT small cells for enterprise and venue deployments
• CBRS capable TDD small cells, ready for shared spectrum access in the US and beyond
• presenceSensors for revenue generating analytics and services with and without core network access
• With a portfolio of licensed and shared spectrum small cells, networks can be built out by service providers and third parties with one common management and access platform.
Gordon continued: “We’re excited about the journey ahead of us with our Viper2020 platform and a growing portfolio of intelligent small cells. The value they liberate from licensed spectrum, beyond traditional voice and data, is a major source of growth for mobile operators and service providers in the future.”
