Guildford, UK – 21st May 2015 – Quortus is delighted to announce that its products have been shortlisted in two categories by The Small Cell Forum in the annual Small Cell Industry Awards. This marks the fourth year running that Quortus has been named a finalist.
The company has been shortlisted for ECX Tactical, a 4G tactical network solution for public safety and government, in the small cell technology and deployment enablers (components, subsystems, software, and system integration) category; and jointly with Cisco for the enterprise small cell VoLTE solution in the small cell network element design & technology section.
The awards winners will be announced at the Small Cells World Summit where an awards ceremony presentation will be held on 10th June at the Painted Hall Greenwich. The full list of awards categories and finalists can be found at: smallcellforum.org/events/awards/shortlist-2015/
The Cisco / Quortus joint entry is for 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.
Quortus ECX Tactical is a software solution that allows the creation of 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. Designed to operate with any 4G radio access technology, ECX Tactical can be deployed in a vehicle, an un-manned drone, or even in a backpack.
ECX Tactical powers the Deltenna Littlewolf platform, which will be shown on their booth at Small Cells World Summit 9-12 June at the Excel Centre London.
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.
