ORLANDO, FL, February 7, 2012—ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leading provider of mobile data services to regional wireless carriers, today announced the launch of its hosted LTE Services Suite to allow regional mobile network operators, cable MSOs, and wireless broadband providers to offer state-of-the-art 4G LTE service to their customers with minimal expense and effort.
As the three largest U.S. carriers rapidly build out LTE networks, regional carriers face the challenge of staying in step with the industry while dealing with the cost and complexities of building LTE networks on their own. ClearSky’s LTE Services Suite enables smaller carriers to offer high-speed, low-cost, reliable 4G data services to subscribers in rural areas. The LTE Services Suite includes:
- Hosted Evolved Packed Core (EPC)
- Radio Access Network (RAN)
- Integrated billing and provisioning
- Installation and ongoing support
ClearSky’s Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and the Radio Access Network (RAN) are bundled in a variety of ways to accelerate and simplify launch of LTE services, and to accommodate carriers’ individual requirements. The EPC can scale from supporting just a few base stations to an unlimited number. The RAN features the latest technology advancements to reduce both size and cost, while offering a wide range of macro/micro/pico cell configurations that can simultaneously support LTE, GSM/UMTS and CDMA. ClearSky’s comprehensive solution includes billing/provisioning integration and 24×7 support for all components.
“We are working diligently to address every aspect of LTE network deployment and operations so that our carrier clients can deliver the best possible user experience to their subscribers,” said ClearSky CEO Bill Poellmitz. “Not only will our clients have access to superior network technology and support services, but our commitment to an open LTE ecosystem of devices and roaming partners will ensure access to all the key services needed to build the converged 4G network of the future.”
