Mobile World Congress 2017

Parallel Wireless @ MWC

February 27, 2017 – March 2, 2017 – Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain

Join Parallel Wireless at Mobile World Congress 2017 to learn how we reimagine the RAN for rural, urban, enterprise and public safety networks. To see how you can make your network deployments as easy and cost effective as Wi-Fi, reach out to schedule a meeting or demo at the event,


February 9, 2017 – Parallel Wireless Expands Indoor vRAN Solution Ecosystem

Collaboration with Node-H and Arcadyan Technology Corporation Cost-effectively Addresses Indoor Cellular Deployment Challenges

GLOMO Awards 2017

We are honored to announce that for the 3rd year in a row Parallel Wireless has been shortlisted for the GLOMO Award for “Best mobile breakthrough technology”! Originally launched as a 4G-only solution, our reimagined 3G/4G multimode rural solution has been deployed on five continents due to our ability to cost-effectively connect the unconnected on an accelerated timeline. We are extremely grateful to the judges for recognizing our ongoing innovation and to our team for their hard work and dedication that made this possible.

First introduced as 4G only solution in 2014 for EE to provide wireless connectivity in rural UK communities, the now multi-mode 3G/4G solution is deployed globally: on land, in the air, and on water to connect the unconnected at much lower deployment cost and on accelerated timeline. Two years later, we have teamed up with Telefonica to provide digital services in remote areas in European and Latin American markets. Our deployment with Optus in Australia put Parallel Wireless rural solution on five continents.

Event Presence

Small cell technology is to improve macro coverage indoor and outdoor. Small Cell Forum will be demonstrating their 5G vision of HetNet at MWC 2017 with their booth becoming a focal point for operators, analysts, journalists, and anyone else who wants to understand the latest small cell innovation. Parallel Wireless has been innovating small cells by deploying them on land (rural deployments with Telefonica, EE and Public Safety; and mobile small cells with M1), water (Winter Institute deployment) , and in the air delivering on the 5G vision of connecting the unconnected. Meet with our 5G small cell experts at MWC!

Rural 5G Small Cells: Connecting the Unconnected Today and Tomorrow – Small Cell Forum booth

Kevin Kleinsmith, Solutions Architect

February 27, 2017 @ 3:30pm – Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain

One of the main objectives of 5G is to connect the unconnected, particularly in rural markets. With much experience rolling out mobile networks in both urban and rural locations, Kevin Kleinsmith will share his insight on how to provide reliable connectivity in remote communities for much lower cost. With an estimated 4 billion people living in unconnected regions, this market is hungry for reliable mobile coverage.

Removing Deployment Constraints of Small Cell vRAN and 5G HetNets – Small Cell Forum booth

Rajesh Mishra, President, Co-Founder and CTO

March 1, 2017 @ 4:00pm – Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain

Rajesh Mishra of Parallel Wireless will present at the Small Cell Forum booth regarding how virtualizing the RAN can help to simplify deployments of complex 5G HetNets. He will also discuss how the vRAN approach not only removes deployment constraints, but also significantly cuts back on deployment and maintenance costs. Stop by the Small Cell Forum booth for this not-to-be-missed presentation!

Mobile operators are facing the challenge of complexity and cost when it comes to integrating VoLTE. Parallel Wireless has partnered with NetNumber to address this challenge. At MWC 2017, both companies will demonstrate how our joint standard based architecture that runs on low-cost COTS can address many use cases. Network operators can deploy this joint groundbreaking technology in rural, urban/dense urban, smart city, public safety, and specialized enterprise. As a result, this joint IMS and HSS solution can cost-effectively provide fast and easy authentication for subscribers especially in critical public safety environments. To learn how you can gracefully migrate over to VoLTE check our demo at NetNumber booth.

80% of cellular data traffic happens indoor and this is where subscribers experience extremely poor mobile coverage. Parallel Wireless has partnered with KMW to demonstrate how we are reimagining the RAN for indoor networks. Mobile operators can now address indoor coverage challenges with our intelligent DAS architecture at a much lower cost with Parallel Wireless HNG. This 3G/4G plus SON gateway makes initial install and ongoing maintenance easy and fast. HNG capabilities of self-optimization, self-configuration, self-healing make indoor networks as easy and cost effective as Wi-Fi. As HNG has the visibility of indoor and outdoor traffic, it enables better handoffs and mobility. In addition, with MOCN capability HNG can route traffic to multiple core, allowing deployment of private LTE networks. New services like VoWiFi, VoLTE, and smart buildings can be deployed at much lower cost and on accelerated time lines. If you would like to learn how you can reduce cost of your indoor deployments, schedule your demo today!

Speaking Sessions

Disruption at the Network Edge

Steve Papa, Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO

March 1, 2017 @ 2:15pm – 3:40pm  – Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain

The growth in network traffic to be managed in the coming years is staggering, no matter whose projections you use. It will demand massive boosts in RAN, backhaul and fronthaul resources. At a time when many operators’ revenues are stable or declining, how can these demands be met without proving ruinously expensive? Only through radical reinvention of the technology and business models being used. Happily, such reinvention is taking place and is producing exciting results. In this session we share some of the most striking from around the world.
