Following on the launch and live demonstration of its strand-mounted small cell base station in August, BelAir Networks today announced that its BelAir100SP Strand Picocell now supports CDMA2000. The CDMA2000 radio option will allow a wider range of mobile carriers to deploy the BelAir100SP to improve mobile broadband service to their subscribers while offloading data from both their radio access and mobile core networks.
The BelAir100SP is a small cell base station that leverages available broadband IP infrastructure to deliver mobile broadband coverage via both licensed and unlicensed wireless spectrum. The BelAir100SP can be deployed from aerial strand, and in pedestals, cabinets or vaults to augment or extend existing mobile broadband coverage.
The modular design of the BelAir100SP supports a range of licensed 3G radios, with a migration to LTE, along with dual 802.11n Wi-Fi radios. It includes a DOCSIS 3.0 modem, plant power supply, and power protection/splitter, enabling it to integrate directly with hybrid fiber coax (HFC) infrastructure for power and backhaul.
The BelAir100SP will be featured at BelAir’s booth at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans this week.
