ip.access’s award-winning Viper™ platform delivers an integrated, 3G/4G Radio Access Network (RAN) solution that redefines the mobile infrastructure market and opens up a host of new commercial opportunities for the provision of cellular coverage.
Viper combines several ip.access products and technologies into a streamlined platform which dramatically simplifies small cell deployments - making deploying enhanced cellular coverage directly equivalent to enterprise Wi-Fi. Our comprehensive offering spans:
Viper’s combination of technologies reduces the capital and operational cost for operators by delivering a fully integrated platform that smooths deployment and speeds the delivery of flexible connectivity when and where it is required. The result: subscribers benefit from five-bar coverage exactly where they need it.
ip.access’s small cells can be deployed with many of ip.access’s proven small cell access points (APs) for residential, small-office-home-office (SoHo), enterprise and rural/remote deployments.
ip.access’s award-winning SON (self-organising network) and network listen capabilities make AP installation easier than installing Wi-Fi. Requiring only Ethernet and power connections, our small cells can be installed by service partners or by end-users directly – without requiring MNOs to manage the deployment. Fully secured IP backhaul connects the APs to the Viper gateway, with no on-site gateways needed.
Viper APs support 3G, 4G (LTE, FDD & TDD) air interfaces in a variety of worldwide frequency bands, including the 3.5GHz Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). Capacities range from cost-optimised SoHo APs serving 8 simultaneous users, to flexible multi-band enterprise APs supporting hundreds of 4G users.
At the heart of the Viper platform is SUMO for LTE, ip.access’s award-winning solution for delivering shared access multi-operator coverage per small cell.
Shared access small cells are the next progression in a path that began with the first tower sharing agreements. ip.access believes that the compelling cost-saving benefits that fuelled the success of the “cell site as differentiator” proposition are even more relevant – and can deliver even greater advantages – for the “spectrum as differentiator” proposition today.
SUMO small cells, whether delivered by MNOs or via a neutral host, are crucial for reducing capital and operational costs for operators. SUMO allows MNOs to share active infrastructure and spectrum, without losing control of the capacity each operator is able to offer its customers.
With SUMO, each access point (AP) broadcasts multiple PLMN codes on the same spectrum, and all users see the AP as a cell within their home network. A policy-based resource scheduler in the AP allocates capacity and bandwidth according to predefined rules managed via SLAs. The Viper gateway then securely routes all traffic to the appropriate core network for each operator, and traffic counters allow the traffic to be monetised.
