NEC focuses on virtualization and small cells to boost network capacity & coverage at the LTE World Summit 2014 - NEC outlines vision for optimizing LTE RAN and backhaul with SDN and NFV and showcases managed RAN services offer and new additions to its indoor small cell portfolio -

*** For immediate use June 19, 2014

London & Tokyo, June 19, 2014 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today that it will be highlighting its market leading and innovative range of radio access network managed services, outdoor and indoor small cells and mobile backhaul solutions at the LTE World Summit 2014 on 23-25 June in Amsterdam on stand #66.

This includes a new addition to its portfolio of revolutionary Enterprise RAN (E-RAN) in-building solutions, which leverage an enterprise's existing Ethernet network to provide indoor UMTS as well as LTE coverage with unparalleled scalability at a fraction of the cost of legacy Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

E-RAN also enables seamless hand-overs between indoor and outdoor cells for users taking calls when entering or leaving a site.  Many offices face the frustration of unreliable mobile signal strength and dropped calls due to the poor indoor penetration of higher 3G/4G frequencies through tinted glass, steel girders and concrete. At the same time, NEC continues to expand its footprint in the residential LTE/3G femtocell market.
Keiichi Jay Miyahara, Corporate Chief Engineer at NEC, will present a keynote speech on Tuesday 24th of June at 15:50hrs in the LTE Evolution conference track focusing on the "Optimization of LTE RAN and backhaul with SDN and NFV". Once infinite processing capacity is available in the virtualized telco networks of tomorrow, big data analytics and end-to-end awareness of network conditions will make it possible to make better backhaul decisions. With centralized dispatching, the network will be able to automatically calculate the optimal service paths and complete path commissioning. If there is high demand or a power outage in one segment, capacity could shift to an alternate path, for example from optical to wireless backhaul. SDN will also open up a new range of spectrum optimization, re-use and interference management techniques at the network level.

Dejan Bojic, Director of Global Product Strategy – Mobile Backhaul at NEC, will play a key role in a panel debate also on Tuesday at 16:50hrs on one of the hottest topics in our industry today – HetNets and Wi-Fi offload. He'll be "Examining small cell deployment strategies."
This includes a focus on NEC's "New Last Mile" managed services portfolio which is designed to help mobile network operators deploy the next layer of LTE capacity and coverage in a rapid, economical and integrated way and keep pace with skyrocketing data demand. The solution is designed to simplify the end-to-end process of delivering the LTE brand promise in complex 3D urban landscapes, VIP customer sites outside the current macro footprint and rural areas in line with their spectrum licensing obligations. The initiative leverages NEC's leadership in open, multivendor HetNet technology and the most comprehensive small cell and backhaul portfolio in the market.
