Converged Wireless System (CWS) is a high-capacity, 3GPP-compliant, carrier-grade, multi-RAT node that leverages the latest silicon to deliver more capabilities from commodity components. Available in different form factors including outdoor and in-vehicle, CWS delivers instant, reliable and cost-effective coverage anywhere and features:

  • 3G, 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi
  • Built-in flexible backhaul: Fiber, Ethernet, LTE Backhaul, multi-radio mesh Software-Defined Networking (SDN) backhaul enabled by HetNet Gateway for enabling a mesh RAN.

CWS leverages open APIs on HNG. The nodes are self-configured and self-managed via HNG and can be deployed easily. HNG-enabled orchestration provides hands-free maintenance of CWS base stations along with the following benefits:

  • Self-Organizing Network (SON)-based interference mitigation for access and backhaul
  • SON-controlled dynamic RF power adjustment
  • Software-defined radio (SDR) capabilities that enable future-proofing for additional bands or band reconfigurations
  • Integrated resilient synchronization

 

CWS Deployment Scenarios

Enabled by HetNet Gateway
  • Urban HetNet optimization for Voice over LTE (VoLTE)

  • Rural and suburban network extension, urban infill, urban capacity enhancement

  • Land Mobile LTE (LMLTE)

  • “Bring Your Own Coverage” with in-vehicle instant deployables

  • Hosting the 3G or P25 IP network backbones

  • Greenfield macro eliminating the node in the cabinet
