Airspan’s AirDensity – An Indoor UE Relay small cell with integrated wireless backhaul

AirDensity is the latest addition to Airspan’s network densification toolkit is a plug-and-play, ten-minute install, all-wireless small cell. What makes AirDensity unique is the ease of installation provided by a combination of integrated distributed intelligence, and advanced technical features in a small, environmentally friendly and simple to install form-factor. By utilizing plug and play installation, wireless backhaul and self-configuration and optimization, operators avoid time-consuming and costly site acquisition activities that usually slow down small cell installation while minimizing operational costs.

Blending technology with a pragmatic approach to solving the problem of indoor coverage and the need for faster data connectivity, Airspan is showing the industry how to finally access the promised benefits of small cells through innovative design, advanced technology implementation and intelligent operation principals.

Network efficiency is increased by over 300% on average by off-loading the cell edge and transforming ‘Cell Edges’ to ‘Cell Center’.

AirDensity delivers a substantial improvement in indoor coverage and capacity of up to 30,000 square feet and improves data connectivity performance by up to 270% on the download and 420% on the upload connection.  By off-loading the existing Macro RAN it improves both RAN Capacity and Speeds. Overall network efficiency is increased by over 300% on average by off-loading the cell edge and transforming ‘Cell Edges’ to ‘Cell Center’.

AirDensity Indoor UE Relay’s technical innovation spans form-factor, operation, network efficiency, integrated intelligence, and performance features. By effectively crowd-sourcing identification of network hot-spots, operators are able to expand coverage and add network capacity at less than half the cost of macro upgrades while avoiding the interference issues which has dogged high-density small cell installations in the past.
