Kerlink, a founding member of the LoRa™ Alliance and the 1st supplier of IoT network infrastructure, launches today a new revolutionary product with an architecture specifically designed for the needs of public networks operators.
Attendees of Kerlink’s last workshop held on the 9th of December 2015 in Paris had been presented a preview of the last-born of the Wirnet product family the Wirnet iBTS, a LoRa®/4G base station.
After a 36-month field-testing period, Wirnet iBTS has been designed with an architecture able to meet the most crucial operators’ needs i.e upgradeability and modularity.
The system has been designed to be quickly adapted to the operators needs: for example, just by adding a single module, the station can embed a new feature (localisation for example) or can increase its coverage capacity (cell densification). Several aspects of this innovative architecture have been patented.
Currently being deployed in the Netherlands, the Wirnet iBTS station can be adapted to fit regional requirements. The product will be presented in its north-American configuration for the first time at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
William GOUESBET, CEO of Kerlink declares:
“Wirnet iBTS will allow public networks operators to guarantee an incredibly high level of quality and react quickly to the market needs. We are very proud to present this new product which is the conclusion of a long work on telco operator’s needs, but also on upgradeability, lifespan and hardware design.”
