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 Awards and Certifications

Highlighting Our Success In The Industry

VITA Wireless Samaritan Award

Every day more than 290,000 wireless phone calls are made to 911. The Wireless Foundation honors Americans who’ve used personal wireless technology to save lives, stop crimes, and help in emergencies with the VITA™ Wireless Samaritan Awards. The VITA award was presented to the two brothers Vernon Schumacher and Frank Deveraux for the Samaritan Award. The lifesaving communications were carried by Tecore’s award winning Network in a Box (NIB)®technology that was deployed just months prior.

MobileVillage Superstar Award

Since 2001, the Mobile Star Awards program has showcased the best products in dozens of categories covering consumer mobile apps, devices, enterprise mobile solutions, enterprise success stories, and technology visionaries. The award was presented to Tecore Networks for the role it played in providing lifesaving communications in rural Alaska.

Best Roaming Product or Service

As GSM continues its explosive growth, adding capacity for more subscribers, while improving their data throughput and call quality, is a major challenge, especially when additional spectrum, sites, and other scarce resources are unavailable. The Super Capacity base station is the solution for adaptive array technology available for GSM/GPRS/EDGE. For the first time in GSM, “N=1” frequency reuse is enabled, meaning every available frequency may be re-used in every cell. This product can result in a substantial improvement of coverage, call quality and data rates in urban areas. This results in better economics, contributing to GSM being made available to many more subscribers, especially in under-served, and emerging urban markets.

Best Technical Innovation

The award was based on Tecore’s pioneering work in GSM infrastructure development, which resulted in a commercially available Base Station Subsystem (BSS) capable of providing concentrated capacity and distributed coverage in a low-cost tiered network architecture.

ISO 9000 - Since 2002

ISO 9000 is the International Organization for Standardization’s family of standards for Quality Management Systems. The standards are intended to enhance customer satisfaction through assurance of conformity to customer and regulatory requirements, and demonstrated consistency in an organization’s ability to provide products and services.
