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 reliable in all scenarios,” said Andrew Fox, CEO, Deltenna Limited. “The LittleWolf Platform combined with Quortus’ ECX Tactical delivers a network which can be deployed in any environment to provide seamless connections between drones, vehicles and on-person units”.
The Deltenna LittleWolf platform will be showcased on the company’s booth at the Small Cells World Summit 9-12 June at the Excel Centre London. At the event Quortus will also launch a Public Safety whitepaper.
Quortus is changing the nature of mobile networks. Its award winning EdgeCentrix (ECX) virtual mobile core software reduces operating costs, enables new service models and improves the performance of wireless networks. Mobile networks traditionally locate intelligence in a central “core”: ECX software allows these central functions to be virtualized anywhere in the network: in the cloud; at the edge of the network on servers or customer premises equipment (CPE); or in embedded form. The result is more flexible, efficient networks that maximize returns for operators and can be tailored to the needs of a huge range of end customers: from enterprises that demand graceful integration with corporate IT and communications infrastructure, to first response teams that require a secure and sanitized “bring your own coverage” solution in a form factor as small as a backpack.
Quortus is headquartered in Guildford, UK, where all of its software products are created.
