Today people expect to access the network anywhere at anytime, and industry business models across all sectors are increasingly dependent on mobile networks. Mobile devices, wireless connectivity and applications together make up the current wave of innovation in information and communications technology known as the Internet of Things and are critical to the success of cloud computing and big data.
Yet, the transformational potential of evolved mobile services can only be realized if people everywhere can access them easily and affordably. In reality, users - especially those in densely populated areas and in homes with multiple devices - experience network access issues and high costs.
With 5G on the horizon and mobile network traffic continuing to increase there is intense focus new methods of spectrum access.
RED Technologies’ innovations allow operators and public service providers to manage unprecedented mobile growth and spectrum shortage in a way that enables fast, secure and lasting change.
RED Technologies’ SON solutions for LSA and SAS dynamic spectrum sharing.
Some large incumbent holders of licensed spectrum (e.g. military, satellite, some commercial users) do not use all of their frequencies, all of the time, everywhere. Recent industry and government collaboration on the issue of spectrum shortage has resulted in new spectrum sharing models, called Licensed Shared Access (LSA) and Spectrum Access System (SAS). These models enable incumbents to sub-let their unused spectrum - without interfering with incumbent usage - to mobile operators through multi-lateral agreements overseen by regulators. Incumbents can share their spectrum in time, frequency and/or geography to release high volumes of underused licensed spectrum into the marketplace.
RED Technologies’ LSAlive© and SASlive© solutions use SON technology and the company’s award-winning real time radio environment map innovations to allow incumbents to evaluate and plan spectrum shared deployments, localize zones for spectrum sharing geographically and minimize the likelihood of interference between the incumbent and the secondary network. The incumbent’s network is protected in a number of ways through standardized information elements, well-defined interfaces and secure access protocols.
RED Technologies’ SON solutions for small cells and HetNet.
Telecoms operators increasingly promote small cells to help their customers circumvent the connectivity issues that result from spectrum shortage. Small cells take connected devices off cellular towers, enabling people in offices, homes and high density areas like airports to dynamically leverage network capacity in a localized zone.
RED Technologies’ SON solutions for the growing complexity and scale of mobile networks makes the planning, configuration, management, improvement and healing of small cells networks faster and simpler, enabling a better use of spectrum.
RED Technologies SON solutions provide:
- Design scalability for handling the growing complexity and scale of mobile networks.
- A “by-nature” big data system with embedded analytics for processing the high volume of network data.
- Real-time radio environment mapping technology to enable various and autonomous optimization tasks such as complex SON heterogeneous network situations.
- Key performance indicators to feed back into the system for preventive actions and early troubleshooting.
 Qualcomm, the world leader in mobile technologies, predicts, with wide industry support, that mobile network traffic will continue to increase 1000 times by 2020.
