28th March 2012
Company receives top ranking, followed by Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei
London, UK - Ubiquisys, the developer of 3G and LTE intelligent cells, has been ranked at the top of the latest Indoor Small Cell Vendor Matrix, released by ABI Research. The matrix compares small cell access point vendors and ranks them based on a comprehensive range of criteria linked to Innovation and Implementation. It primarily covers vendor competitiveness in residential and enterprise environments, but also recognises capabilities in public access small cells.
Ubiquisys was ranked #1 overall, thanks to strong commercial momentum in winning contracts and deploying cells through its partners, which include Nokia Siemens Networks and NEC. On the innovation front, Ubiquisys has demonstrated a rapidly expanding set of customer-proven innovations, including:
- ActiveRadio® - the only deployed real-time interference mitigation and performance optimisation system
- ActiveSON® - the first self-organising network (SON) of small cells, commercially deployed by NetworkNorway
- SideStep® - the latest addition to the ActiveRadio® suite, delivering new levels of spectrum efficiency and interference mitigation
- CloudBase® - the first lifecycle management system for small cells, streamlining supply chain, activation, auto-recovery and service enhancement
- EdgeCloud® - a combination of small cells integrated with cloud computing platforms based on Intel® Architecture
“Ubiquisys takes the top spot on the back of its continued commitment to innovation with technologies like SideStep, CloudBase, and EdgeCloud, while keeping its commercial contracts ticking through partnerships with NEC and Nokia Siemens Networks,” commented Aditya Kaul, Principal Analyst and Practice Director, Mobile Networks, ABI Research. “Ubiquisys’ dedicated focus on the small cell area allows it to stay a couple of steps ahead of its larger rivals when it comes to introducing innovative techniques that should shape the future of the small cell market.”
“At Ubiquisys we know that our commercial success is based on a powerful set of practical, patented technologies that have been field-proven by operators in extreme environments,” said Chris Gilbert, CEO of Ubiquisys. “The seismic shift in smart device adoption and behaviour is accelerating demand for our ground-breaking set of small cell solutions.”
