SpiderCloud and Tango Networks collaborate for Mobile UC services
Feb 25, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc., a provider of small cell Enterprise Radio Access Network, or E-RAN systems, and Tango Networks, a technology provider, have announced that the two companies have been working together to help mobile operators deliver Mobile Unified Communications, or Mobile UC, services and advanced PBX functionality over scalable enterprise-class small cell networks.
SpiderCloud offer mobile operators with a true multi-mode access system with 3G, LTE/4G and dual-band Wi-Fi for reliable mobile services indoors for enterprise customers of any size. The E-RAN system consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that is deployed inside the enterprise premise.
The SCSN creates one trusted tunnel to the operator's core network and can control over 100 self-organizing and multi-access small cells that can be installed in just days using an enterprise-Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN), the company said.
SpiderCloud is reportedly the only company that supports "soft handover" between radio nodes, which ensures that voice calls and data sessions are not dropped as people move within a building. Aggregating all the radio nodes at the services node layer optimizes backhaul and allows service providers and enterprises to more easily control and manage the system.
When combined with Tango Networks' Small Cell Connect, the joint mobility solution enables mobile operators to provide enterprises with the ability to extend their Mobile UC services and applications, and PBX functionality from their IP telephony network through their small cells as part of the trusted carrier macro-cellular network.
The solution extends optimized Mobile UC and PBX functionality and services both inside and outside the enterprise, allowing users to use their mobile phone just like a desk phone, the company reported.
"We're pleased to work with SpiderCloud to help enable unmatched mobile connectivity and Mobile UC applications for mobile operators and their enterprise customers," said Brenda Boehm, President and CEO of Tango Networks. "Our market-leading Mobile UC applications and extensive PBX integration deliver a truly unique solution that provides the seamless mobility users require to effectively conduct business while on-the-go."
Tango Networks' solution utilizes a tunnel created by the SpiderCloud E-RAN to enable an aggregation point for call signaling between macrocells, small cells, and the enterprise IP telephony infrastructure.
This allows enterprise employees to use their existing devices to enjoy familiar PBX call and messaging features - such as integrated voice mail, single number, presence and short-digit dialing - for superior mobility and reachability, the company added.
