RAVEN® 3G Network in a Box® (NIB)
Broadband Wireless Communications for Rapid Deployment
Tecore’s RAVEN® Platform delivers macro 3G wireless service for rapidly deployable communications for first responders. The RAVEN leverages a size-optimized all-IP based architecture, delivering the most compact, adaptable, and cost-effective rapid response platform. The highly portable, mobile platform is small enough to qualify as carry-on luggage on most airlines.
Tecore has incorporated almost 30 years of industry leadership in scalable wireless systems into the design of the RAVEN architecture. It leverages the patented iCore portfolio of 3GPP compliant software-defined core network elements, available as a completely integrated core or as individual elements capable of supporting network scalability across multiple locations. The robust capability set, compact form factor, and cost effectiveness of the RAVEN enables a broad range of deployment scenarios for rapid deployment, emergency management, peacekeeping missions, and mobile communications networks in transit. The RAVEN is delivered in a size-optimized package, measuring at approximately 2 cubic feet.
The RAVEN system is capable of supporting UMTS and HSPA and provides voice, text, and packet data services for local users as a standalone system or as part of a larger communications network. Multiple RAVEN platforms can be networked together to provide end users with ubiquitous access from site-to-site, as well as accessing international voice calling services, the Internet, and social media locally or through a centralized gateway on a 3G network.
