Radisys, Octasic and Quortus Partner to Deliver a Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box for Defense and Public Safety Sectors
All-in-one ruggedized mobile networking solution enables military and public safety professionals to deliver 4G/LTE, 3G and 2G networks for rapid ubiquitous coverage
HILLSBORO, OR, November 16, 2015 – Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, along with Octasic Inc. and Quortus, today announced its Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box, a complete 4G/3G/2G network targeted for the military and public safety organizations. The joint solution enables the rapid deployment of an end-to-end LTE network in a compact, ruggedized form factor. To deliver a complete network, the Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box integrates Radisys’ field-hardened CellEngine™ TOTALeNodeB™ LTE small cell software and Femtotality 3G small cell software with Octasic’s OCTBTS platforms and Quortus’ ECX Tactical virtualized EPC (Evolved Packet Core) solution.
Today’s battlefield on both land and in the air depends on proven, commercial communications technologies as a key strategy for military success. Combat soldiers need to understand surrounding situations and be able to react quickly to achieve strategic advantage. Similarly, in a disaster scenario public safety organizations also need to be able to quickly deploy a secure and reliable mobile communications network to support response efforts.
The Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box enables the military and public safety professionals to rapidly deploy a complete portable network anywhere, whether in a UAV, a vehicle or a backpack. By providing support for 4G/LTE, 3G and 2G air interfaces, the solution supports communications in remote regions and permits the use of any standard handset. Furthermore, the network can support up to 32 active users by leveraging LTE technology.
The Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box is available today. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing information.
“As the leaders in small cell software with more than 80 deployments worldwide, we’re skilled at working with any organization that needs reliable, secure and portable communications technology. We’re excited about this new Multi-Radio Network-in-a-Box that encompasses Octasic’s value proposition to deliver base stations that meet the military’s strict size, weight and power requirements and adds Quortus’ virtualized core for a complete end-to-end LTE network solution.”
