TECORE Unveils SIP/VoIP Enabled GSM Base Station
TECORE Wireless Systems, announced the launch of its pre-IMS VoIP/SIP enabled GSM base station to be showcased at this year's 3GSM World Congress. The BTS-4000RM delivers up to 64 high powered GSM/GPRS/EDGE voice and data channels occupying as little as 5U of a standard 19” telecommunications rack. The BTS-4000RM base station eliminates the need for traditional BSC, TRAU and PCU elements, embedding these functions within the base station platform.
With the launch of the BTS-4000RM, TECORE also introduces network interface enhancements to its GSM base station product line. This includes the internal translation from a traditional GSM RAN to an all IP SIP-enabled network interface.
Thus, the BTS-4000RM supports direct connection to a pre-IMS network. Added capabilities include transcoder-free operation to minimize network bandwidth, and direct routing of local IP call traffic to optimize overall backhaul utilization. Specifically targeting applications requiring compact radio access solutions, the BTS-4000RM offers flexible network integration and deployment capabilities while providing macro RF coverage, capacity and performance.
“The operators to whom we’ve delivered and demonstrated the BTS-4000RM are very excited about the flexibility this solution offers,” said Terry Williams, Chief Technology Officer for base station products. “Large capacity, flexible interfaces, and more functionality in a smaller, easy to deploy platform are key to many specialized mission critical applications, and this platform delivers.”
“We are very pleased with customer response to this new product development and technology innovation,” said Doss McComas, Vice President, Business Development at TECORE. “This product builds upon our company’s ongoing commitment to advanced, smaller, more powerful base station solutions for the market.”
The BTS-4000RM will be on display at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona, Spain, February 12-15, 2007, at the TECORE Wireless Systems pavilion located in Hall 8, stand 8C78.
