R adioFrame Networks, a leader in IP-based picocell and femtocell solutions for the mobile marketplace, will showcase its next generation of Radio Access technology solutions at the 3GSM World Congress conference in Barcelona this upcoming February 12-15. The RadioFrame solutions address the acute need of mobile network operators (MNOs) to efficiently and effectively improve wireless coverage inside of office buildings and homes. RadioFrame's femtocells and picocells allow MNOs to dramatically increase the number of base stations in their networks in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Radio access technology

Leveraging the company's current IP-based radio solutions, RadioFrame's collapsed BSS architecture is designed to provide the services and connectivity of base transceiver stations and base station controllers. This architecture collapses the functions of much of the radio management into RadioFrame's picocell and femtocell base stations at the edge of the network allowing a virtually unlimited number of RadioFrame base stations to connect into current network architecture as well as newer network technologies such as IMS networks as they are deployed. Additionally, because it is an integrated part of the network, RadioFrame's solution can support important functions such as handover and frequency planning while enabling a "plug and play" customer based deployment model.


RadioFrame networks - Femtocells & Picocells

"This is a major evolution of the way wireless networks are operated today considering operators who had 30,000 base stations in their entire networks will soon be managing that many base stations in a single city," said RadioFrame Networks President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Brown. "Being competitive in the fixed mobile convergence battle requires incorporating femtocells and picocells into wireless networks. And while the physical size and complexity of femtocells and picocells are far less than that of macrocells, the sheer number of connections requires a reworking of the current core network topology. RadioFrame Networks has been working on a collapsed BSS architecture that will seamlessly address this concern for sometime. The marketplace is clearly in need of this solution - the time is now - and we are excited to be bringing this technology to 3GSM in Barcelona."


RadioFrame OmniRadio Processor

Earlier this week RadioFrame announced the introduction of its OmniRadio Processor that is at the core of RadioFrame's OmniRadio Platform, which will be used in their GSM and UMTS femtocell and picocell products. In the future, RadioFrame intends to offer femtocell products for other technologies such as WiMAX and LTE. In developing its collapsed BSS architecture, RadioFrame has partnered with United Kingdom-based Zynetix. Zynetix is an innovator of core networking and switching systems for mobile networks and has developed one of the leading GSM softswitches on the market.


Zynetix highly integrated compact network switching

"Zynetix has developed the next generation of highly integrated, compact network switching solutions and RadioFrame's concept fits perfectly with our view that winning solutions will be aimed at facilitating the evolution of more streamlined networks that rely on fewer yet smarter network elements," said Andy Odgers at Zynetix.
