Our Story

Since 1991, Tecore has been committed to providing innovative, reliable and scalable wireless infrastructure solutions. We have become a trusted provider to the commercial, government, and military markets and have established a proven track record of performance and evolution driven by our innovative software defined approach.

Tecore’s technology foundation is the iCore®, a software-defined all-IP core network that incorporates the key components of scalability and industry compliance in an x86 design. The effectiveness of the architecture and design has allowed the product to evolve across multiple generations of wireless from 2G to 5G. In addition Tecore also offers a CoreCell product line of Software Defined Radio (SDR) base stations.  Following the standard architectural split of Base Band Unit (BBU) and Remote Radio Head (RRH) infrastructure, the CoreCell product line leverages X86 based SDR processing and IP connectivity to a comprehensive set of Radio Heads across all standard commercial bands in scalable power and configuration.

As wireless moves to its 5th generation, Tecore Networks continues to provide solutions that evolve, while continuing the support of legacy generations using the iCore®.

Our Value Proposition


With nearly 30 years in the business, our team and technology has supported the industry transition across multiple generations of wireless technology. We’ve earned a reputation for quality and performance across all of our solutions and services.


We practice, we learn, we implement. Continuously. We keep pace with the ever-changing needs of the industry, and always search for innovative ways to apply technology.


While our current road map is focused on 5G, Tecore’s iCore® and CoreCell product lines provide a common baseline to integrate past, present and future generations of technology.


While the core technology remains the same, the infrastructure necessary is configured based on each customer’s requirements.


With the growing risk coming to light from questionable providers, Tecore remains the trusted source for reliable, secure and scalable  wireless infrastructure globally.


Our vision, like our business, spans the globe. Let us put our worldwide array of connections to work for you and your efforts.


Technology leadership is not only measured by the innovative products and solutions a company brings to the market but also by the foundational patents that set them apart.


We have a range of certifications and approvals from the FCC, CE, governmental agencies, and industry partners. We take pride in our ISO-9001 certification, ensuring our customers are provided the best quality in the business.
