Virtualised gateways minimise the deployment and operational costs of small cell networks
nanoVirt gateways for 3GPP small cell deployments utilise all the capabilities of a virtual environment, including a HyperVisor and Virtual Switch, and allow several thousand access points to be supported on low-cost commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IT hardware.
nanoVirt is delivered as a software solution that can be deployed by mobile operators and neutral hosts on preferred server hardware, or hosted via a third-party data centre.
By completely removing the need for on-premise gateways, nanoVirt offers exceptional advantages in terms of streamlining day-to-day network operations and simplifying maintenance and support.
nanoVirt minimises the impact of deploying additional small cells on the mobile operator’s existing macro network. The Viper gateway encompasses all the small cells into a single “underlay” cell, seamlessly managing handovers to and from the existing macro network, as well as handovers between individual small cells.
As a result, deployment of additional small cells into the network is a simple plug-and-play process, enabling cost effective self-install by smaller businesses, and allowing AP rollouts to be funded by the network operator, channel partners, or even end-users for a truly scalable small cell network.
