iBSS GSM AirSite™ Backhaul-Free BTS
An integrated, backhaul-free base station solution that delivers the power of a macro cellin a micro cell size. The iBSS GSM AirSite BTS eliminates the costly backhaul barrier to service expansion. When used in conjunction with Tecore's other iBSS GSM RAN products, the AirSite BTS eliminates the need for expensive T1/E1/IP connections or microwave links by utilizing the existing spectrum to carry traffic; optimizing backhaul while still easy to deploy for highway, suburban, or rural coverage.
Low cost coverage
Increase service delivery while decreasing initial and recurring costs. With its integrated, in-band radio, a single GSM Base Transceiver Station (BTS) supports up to 12 full-power AirSite base stations from a single interconnect point, thus eliminating the monthly cost of 11 backhaul links.
Eliminate service delivery barriers: AirSite base stations deliver the same coverage characteristics as a conventional cell, but at a fraction of the cost. The self-configuring base station includes a full complement of capabilities to deliver superior services, including a full-power, 40-Watt transceiver with automatic power control.
GPRS / EDGE
When networked with the iBSS GSM RAN, operators are able to extend GPRS / EDGE high-speed voice and data system footprints without adding more hardware. With the Tecore solution you can migrate from today's GSM to high-speed data for the wireless internet standards.
Service providers can place iBSS GSM AirSite base stations in locations that will maximize their network's coverage in suburban and other low-density locations, and can easily relocate them as their network footprint changes.
