Quortus and Telefónica demonstrate ‘LTE Nano’ mobile network


Companies combine to showcase private cellular solutions at Barcelona event Quortus today announced that it has partnered with operator Telefónica España, to drive the rapidly emerging trend towards the use of private cellular networks in a broad range of applications. The two companies will illustrate their private cellular capabilities via LTE Nano, a low-footprint, ultra-compact and highly scalable 4G network-in-a-box implementation built around Quortus’ award-winning EdgeCentrix (ECX) Enhanced Packet Core. LTE Nano will be on display at the Telefónica Booth (Hall 3, Booth 3-K21) at Mobile World Congress from February 27th to March 2nd 2017. Private cellular – deployed on licensed, license-exempt or deregulated spectrum – enables a variety of innovative services, including DECT replacement and mixed voice/secure data services for enterprises and other organizations. Quortus provides a complete 2G/3G/4G virtual core network solution for such applications that can run on any hardware platform, and is scalable from tens to tens of thousands of connected users. Telefónica, as a leading global operator, is pioneering the use of private cellular, particularly amongst its industrial and enterprise customer base. LTE Nano delivers an all-IP mobile broadband mobility solution which can be used to provide a discrete voice, video and data network in a range of scenarios including emergency situations, remote industrial locations and temporary deployment at events. Its small form factor and light weight allows it to be carried in a backpack, or elevated via a drone. The network can be deployed within minutes, providing an instant hotspot for users with specific coverage requirements beyond the capabilities of public LTE networks. In remote, underserved areas it can function as a standalone...
