Quortus and Cisco Win Small Cell Forum Small Cell Industry 2015 Award


Companies Honored in the “Small Cell Network Element Design and Technology” Category for Industry-First Enterprise Small Cell VoLTE Solution Guildford, UK – June 11th 2015 – Quortus is delighted to announce that it has been named as a winner by The Small Cell Forum in the annual Small Cell Industry Awards. The company won for a joint entry with Cisco for the enterprise small cell VoLTE solution in the small cell network element design & technology category. The Cisco / Quortus joint offering is the industry’s first enterprise-focused small cell solution to include VoLTE. Already in trials with a number of operators, it uses an “intelligent RAN” approach to provide true integration between local voice and data services and 3G or 4G macro infrastructure. Mark Grayson, Cisco; Andy Odgers, CEO of Quortus and Small Cell Forum Awards Chair of Judges, Caroline Gabriel “This was a hotly contested category with a broad range of entries, reflecting some of the important trends that are shaping small cells. Among those are virtualization, and the ability to deploy small cell systems with high quality, localized control and security. The alliance between Cisco and Quortus enables enterprises of many kinds to implement a local LTE network with full IP functionality in a highly flexible and resource-efficient way,” said the award Judges. “For the enterprise, voice, and the quality of it, remains crucially important and as such has been identified as the ‘killer app’ for small cells in this segment,” said Andy Odgers, CEO of Quortus. “This joint solution neatly shows how easily VoLTE can now be implemented in this market and the benefits that...

Quortus ECX Tactical Implemented on Deltenna LittleWolf Platform


Combined offering provides a complete solution for private cellular ‘bubbles’ for Public Safety and Rural Applications Small Cells World Summit, UK – 9th June 2015 – Quortus today announced that its ECX Tactical software has been implemented on the Deltenna LittleWolf eNodeB, a 4G-radio hardware platform for high-mobility scenarios. The combination of the two products provides a complete solution for field-deployable private cellular 4G ‘bubbles’ with specialized features for the public safety and first responder market, including multicast/broadcast, in-session mobility, relay-station functionality and ad-hoc meshing. Quortus’ ECX Tactical software is optimized for embedding directly onto partner 4G radios such as Deltenna’s. This uniquely creates a ‘network-on-a-chip’, allowing deployment in space and power constrained environments, such as vehicles, on drones or in personnel backpacks. It comprises an embedded 4G evolved packet core (EPC) with enhanced features, tightly coupled with a small footprint eNodeB and 4G or Wi-Fi UEs/modems. As well as incorporating a feature-rich EPC, ECX Tactical introduces features demanded by the critical communications sector such as seamless secure communications with high-mobility, to date only seen in Tetra networks. “We are delighted to work with Deltenna and the LittleWolf platform. Their technology and expertise in radio and antenna products are ideal for the public safety and emergency response fields. Using ECX Tactical together with Deltenna, agencies can now provide high-mobility users with seamless and consistent communications on the ground in high impact scenarios where it’s most needed,” said Andy Odgers, CEO, Quortus. “Access to high-quality communications represent a critical piece of everyday infrastructure and nowhere is this truer than in public safety arena. Agencies require rapidly deployable networks that are secure and...
