RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirWalk Communications, a leading innovator and developer of advanced CDMA technologies, today announced an on-premise enterprise femtocell that uniquely combines both wireless voice and data functionality – the EdgePoint™ PRO. This new femtocell product utilizes a dual-mode platform, combining both 1xRTT and 1xEV-DO Rev. A, and offers an unprecedented level of integration in a single device.
The EdgePoint PRO enhances AirWalk’s line of femtocell products and introduces full in-building cellular capabilities while offering seamless hand-off and hand-in functionality with the macro network. Advanced application software integrates voice and data functions by controlling radio performance management and self-configuration into a unit that can scale from a single enterprise installation to multiple unit clusters capable of supporting large enterprises, public venues, or industrial compounds. AirWalk plans to provide demonstration models at the CTIA conference in Las Vegas next week in Booth 2130.
The EdgePoint PRO assures enterprises secure in-building voice and data coverage while providing ubiquitous connectivity to the macro network. The unit acts as a cellular access point and plugs directly into an existing broadband enterprise connection to extend 3G wireless CDMA services. For operators, this reduces capital expenditures while maximizing macro network efficiencies. Other advanced EdgePoint PRO functions address radio interference issues and hand-off between femtocell clusters.
EdgePoint PRO is distinguished for its unrivaled clustering feature that assures soft handoff between multiple units along with an industry-leading hand-in/hand-out capability to the macro network. This unit is available as a wall mount or rack mount with simple plug-and-play installation and advanced SIP/IMS interface.
“EdgePoint PRO is able to bring full wireless service into the workplace and support a more complete connected experience for employees. This breakthrough device enables AirWalk to exceed customers’ mobility requirements and introduce a truly powerful, compact, and affordable femtocell,” said Serge Pequeux, president and CEO of AirWalk Communications. “Our heritage of supplying micro and pico base stations, combined with our field-proven software, enables AirWalk to be first to market with a dual-mode enterprise femtocell product.”
AirWalk’s EdgePoint PRO femtocell extends voice and data in-building cellular service to businesses, campus areas, and large industrial complexes. The unit serves as a low-power access point, operating in licensed spectrum, to connect subscribers to their carrier’s network via broadband Internet connections.
