AirUnity:

Intelligent Managed Indoor LTE Relay Solution

Enhanced indoor and outdoor network cell-edge coverage providing a capacity increase of up to 300%.

AirUnity: a best-in-class end user installed indoor LTE small cell with integrated LTE relay backhaul, designed specifically to solve the indoor mobile hotspot problem and dramatically improve network efficiency. Placing the small cell indoors right at the hotspots in enterprises and public access areas improves cellular signal quality and covering an area of around 30,000 sq ft and thus enables greater experience for indoor users. In addition AirUnity provides extended outdoor coverage of 100 metres.

AirUnity improves network efficiency without any additional strain on the existing macro capacity.

Integrated Wireless Backhaul

A free-standing unit with wireless backhual which can be placed on window sills, tables and shelfs. It supports LTE-A (FDD or TDD) and an optional WiFi AP (802.11n concurrent with 802.11ac). AirUnity is composed of an eNB for access, and a standard high-performance UE relay for wireless backhaul.

Significantly reduces TCO

AirUnity significantly reduces small cell OPEX by addressing two key areas contributing to a small cell TCO:

•    Backhaul Cost

•    Installation Cost

Backhaul costs are a recognised barrier to entry for small cell deployments. Airspan’s intelligent relay products including AirUnity remove backhaul OPEX completely, and enables a rapid deployment of small cells to provide a cost effective uplift in an existing macro LTE network. Additional capacity gains can be achieved by deploying dedicated backhaul to the small cells where and when the demand justifies it’s associated costs.
