3Way Networks, a leader in innovative 3G indoor infrastructure, is launching its multi-purpose UMTS Indoor Coverage and Capacity solution, the DBX-ic2, at the upcoming 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.
The low-cost, capacity-efficient 3Way DBX-ic2 has been designed to solve the complex issue of deploying UMTS networks in-building. From multi-tenanted offices to campus deployments, the 3Way DBX-ic2 is ideal for mobile network operators needing to extend their networks to offer public coverage or private wireless office solutions.
The DBX-ic2 utilises 3Way´s unique Integrated Network on a card (IN-c) technology that combines an entire radio network, switching sub-system and packet elements onto a single PCB card. The product’s integrated MSC functionality has a number of significant advantages for wireless office over conventional network solutions as it eliminates the need to backhaul signaling or traffic for local calls and its SIP VOIP interface allows connection into customers existing PBX systems.
Simon Albury of 3 Way Networks commented “We have secured a number of trials with major Operators in ´06 that will provide an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of the 3Way DBX-ic2 and our other products. We are confident that the 3 Way DBX-ic2 will prove an invaluable addition for in-building UMTS deployments. With subscribers increasingly migrating to a single phone, and our introduction later this year of a sub Ј100 home basestation, mobile network operators will be able to offer an extremely attractive replacement for the existing fixed line services”
Eddie Murphy, Independent Convergence Analyst, said “UMTS is in a very good position to win the fight for the indoor business and home market in an increasingly competitive telecoms market, however, the need for PBX integration/replacement and low-cost home equipment will be paramount. With VoWiFi fighting for a foothold, the 3Way DBX-ic2 could give UMTS operators the edge in the convergence battle”
3Way Networks will be at 3GSM Barcelona, 13th-16th February, AV106 and will be demonstrating the simplicity and versatility of the 3Way DBX-ic2 to network operators.
