Private LTE Networks (LTE-FES)

Enabling LTE Networks over Private Spectrum

A family of band-shifting LTE-FES products enable state-of-the-art, high-performance 2×2 MIMO LTE-A equipment to operate in proprietary bands. The LTE-FES acts as compact, in-line module between the LTE modem and the antenna. RF signal operates at a new frequency while existing tools for network and traffic management continue to work without any changes.

The Rise of Private LTE Networks

LTE provides the low latency and high throughput required for specialist telemetry and control applications, while also providing the extended reach that allows sensor and control systems – both static and mobile – to be easily connected over vast areas. Perhaps the most significant attribute is LTE’s traffic management and the ability to extend QoS over the air to devices in the field, allowing multiple traffic types with different criticalities to be brought together onto a single infrastructure without sacrificing the integrity or dependability of the overarching applications.

With lower cost small cell architecture, the barriers to entry for LTE networks are dropping to the point that many organisations are putting themselves on the path to owning and operating their own private LTE infrastructure, for their internal use, in complete independence from existing Service Provider mobile networks. Many government and commercial organizations around the world have access to swaths of spectrum (e.g., Military, Utilities and Railways) that can be leveraged utilizing our LTE-FES technology.

Available LTE-FES Models

We custom configure the LTE-FES blocks to meet specific project requirements and manufacture them in wholesale quantities. The table below lists a few completed projects. Please take a look at the General Specifications to better understand the design capabilities and contact us to discuss your project requirements.
