— The SmartAIR1000 edge application controller from wireless network-capacity and resource-management provider Vasona Networks Inc., works with traffic across all applications while assessing and acting on congestion based on where it is occurring and its causes. By inserting transparently between the radio access network (RAN) and the core network, the platform spans mobile network mapping, high-speed packet processing and Vasona Networks' RateControl technology. It also can work in conjunction with other network tools, including policy servers, video optimizers, caching products and deep-packet inspectors.
— According to CommScope, its Six Sector Solution, part of the Andrew portfolio of antenna offerings, uses three antennas where six previously were needed. The technology uses twin-beam base-station antennas for sector-splitting, generating two RF beams from one antenna while saving on tower leasing costs and decreasing wind loading, the company adds. The array works on GSM, CDMA, UMTS and LTE networks.
