How to Build Your Own Fixed LTE Network

Baicells Technologies, Qubee Pakistan and Intel officially released whitepaper for the Fixed Wireless Access (“FWA”) Market. Titled” Transforming the Fixed Wireless Access market with FlexRAN based Small Cell solutions”, the white paper explores the various business and technical challenges of FWA operatorsevaluating the use of LTE and how they can leverage solutions from Baicells tospeed their time to market and prepare for the future of 5G.

FWA industry is embarking on anetwork transformation. To accomplish this transformation, many operators are embracingLTE as the new de facto standard as it is the only globally accepted standard with a broad eco-system and a clear roadmap to 5G.

However, given that LTE isprimarily designed for mobile network requirements, it poses several business challenges for FWA operators including unnecessary system purchasing overheadand financial risks such as the costs to acquire new spectrum for the enterprise.  This resulted in certain FWA operators slowingdown their transition to LTE while many abandoned LTE and switched toproprietary WiFi solutions despite the lack of an evolutionary roadmap of thelater.

Given the market requirement sand the need for an adaptable design, Baicells developed the LTE small cells solution based on Intel’s FlexRAN reference design and optimized it for FWA services that removes both technical and commercial barriers and will pave the way forbusiness success for FWA operators and wireless ISPs. The open architecture also enables operators to prepare for future technologies including 5G.

Qubee Pakistan, a professional FWA operators, has deployed Baicells’ solution to transform WiMAXto LTE. “Baicells’ accessible LTE solutions will enable us not only provide better FWA service, but also to potentially offer better mobility service. We believe that this solution will provide better user experience in the short term while guaranteeing us long term business success,” explained Mr. Jamal Nasir Khan, CEO of Qubee Pakistan.
