Mindspeed And SpiderCloud Innovate On Scalable Enterprise 3G Small Cells

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the leading supplier of small cell technology, today announced that it has co-developed a customized baseband processor with SpiderCloud Wireless featuring software, self-organizing and scalable system features by SpiderCloud. The new processor solution opens the door for mobile operators to roll out scalable deployments of robust indoor 3G systems for medium to large enterprise customers worldwide.

The SpiderCloud Wireless Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) system uses SpiderCloud’s highly optimized software stack that includes its own physical layer software (PHY) implementation on Mindspeed’s system-on-chip (SoC). The PHY plays a critical role in solving mobility and interference problems of radio nodes, which are controlled and powered by SpiderCloud’s enterprise premises-based services node.

The self-organizing E-RAN, which can be installed in just days by a mobile operator or its partners, delivers reliable 3G coverage and capacity for 100 to 1000s of people using any existing Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) for backhaul and enterprise services integration, with full mobility and cell-to-cell handoff and synchronization with the operator’s macro cellular network.

“Small cells have quickly become a recognized part of carrier network plans for both metro area and residential services. Still, despite a good deal of focus, the challenges of the corporate environment have been tougher to meet,” said Peter Jarich, Vice President, Consumer and Infrastructure at Current Analysis. “This co-operation, and the level of development that has gone into it, is further evidence of how complex the enterprise segment truly is. More generally, it is an indication of how the small cell market continues to innovate and the opportunities continue to grow.”

“3G small cells are being deployed in homes, small enterprises and outside in metropolitan areas, but until now, the industry has not been able to deliver a true ‘enterprise-grade’ system,” said Raouf Y. Halim, chief executive officer at Mindspeed. “It took years of developments and innovative thinking by Mindspeed and SpiderCloud Wireless to enable such a system, and we’re proud to take part in unlocking the enterprise opportunity for mobile operators.”
