Nomor Research GmbH

and Node
-
H GmbH

announce
d

today
that they
have
signed a frame
work

agreement
to
develop
a d
ual
-
m
ode
Protocol Stack Solution fo
r
LTE
/HSPA

f
emtocell
s
. Both companie
s

have

already
demonstrated their
capabilities
in
the
ir

respective domains of LTE and HSPA
,

and
are
now
join
ing

forces
to
offer
customers
an industry leading
dual
-
mode solution.

Nomor Research
has
focus
ed

on LTE research

and development from the
early
days

of LTE
standardi
z
ation
.
Leveraging this experience,
Nomor
is
offer
ing

a solid product and service
portfolio
for LTE
eNB
protocol stacks
and
has prove
n

to be

a reliable partner for equipment
manufacturers
that are
active
ly seeking early opportunities in this fast
-
growing market
.
Nomor’s technology
mitigate
s their

risks and
reduce
s

the cost of protocol development and
test
ing
.

Node
-
H
has established a reputation for excellence in the field of
HSPA femtocells
.
Node
-
H
was th
e first ISV to achieve technical milestones such as 24 simultaneous calls, 14Mbps
HSDPA and 5.7Mbps HSUPA on a femtocell
, as well as to
fully
conform to
3GPP Iu
-
h
standards
that
allow
for the
interoperability of femtocells

from
different
manufacturers
.
Th
e

Femto
-
Forum and
3GPP
-
driven
femtocell
s
tandardization
process
has
boosted
operators

confidence
to accelerate

mass deployment
i
n

all major markets.

T
ens of millions of
HSPA
femto

cells
are expected to

be deployed in the
next
few
years, with Node
-
H being a

leading
supplier of the core software technology.

LTE network

deployment
s

are set to
increase
exponentially
in coming
years
,
but
HSPA and
LTE
networks

must co
-
exist since HSPA devices continue to be the fastest growing device
type
.
E
fficient dual
-
mode int
egration is
of
particular importan
ce

for
femtocells
used
in
residential and enterprise environments.
LTE devices will use the LTE network capability,
while HSPA devices will be served by the HSPA network function.
Besides the
parallel
support of the
two

ac
cess schemes
,
seamless
handover

is essential for a uniform user
experience.
F
emtocell
s

will
be connected

via the standardized Iu
-
h interface for HSPA and
the S1 interface for LTE

Evolved Packet Core.

Eiko Seidel, Chief Technical Officer of Nomor Research
:


We find it
an
exciting

prospect

to
work with

the experienced
Node
-
H
team
.

Our
cooperation

will

allow
us
to
provide

our
customers with

an
industry
-
leading

LTE/HSPA dual
-
mode

femtocell software
already
at the
earliest

possible
stage
.
J
ust as

important
,

the

partnership

permits

us
to safeguard
the required
cost savings
with respect

to

development

of low
-
cost
femto
cells

that
support both
technologies
.



Mike Cronin, CEO of Node
-
H
:

We
want
to make it easy for an operator to add LTE to their
femtocell roll
-
out
. By working closely with Nomor on seamless integration between HSPA
and LTE, we bring forward the day that operators can choose to deploy dual
-
mode femtocells
.
H
igh
-
volume residential deployment

is the ultimate goal. With Node
-
H and Nomor co
-
operating clo
sely, we have the know
-
how to bring this technology to
market
in the
shortest
possible
time

frame
.
