BARCELONA, Spain -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS – Continuous Computing® announced that leading 4G wireless solutions vendor Airspan Networks has selected its award-winning Trillium® LTE eNodeB software and professional services capabilities to develop the company’s AirSynergy picocell and Air4G macrocell LTE base station products.

Airspan is combining Continuous Computing’s industry-proven Trillium LTE software with its own strong WiMAX heritage and 4G expertise to expand its current product portfolio and deliver differentiated picocell and macrocell solutions that will accelerate the company’s strategic expansion into the LTE market.

Designed to scale from femtocell all the way up to macrocell, Trillium LTE eNodeB software delivers unparalleled flexibility for handling the challenges associated with each of the various flavors and form factors of 4G base stations.

“As an industry leader in WiMAX, the logical next step for us was to build on that expertise to expand into the 4G LTE market,” said Paul Senior, chief technology officer for Airspan. “Being able to start with the proven reference design based on leading LTE software and services from Continuous Computing really enabled us to accelerate the LTE solutions we are bringing to market.”

This week Airspan announced its new LTE product portfolio, namely AirSynergy, AirHarmony and Air4G. The new products offer Radio Access Network (RAN) solutions and are all designed for low-cost operation, quick deployment and maximized capacity and coverage. Each of the products combines a number of connectivity platforms including WiMAX, 4G LTE and, in the case of AirHarmony, GSM as well.

“We identified the WiMAX base station vendor market as a strategic target early on, and a marquee player like Airspan choosing Trillium as the basis for its entry into the LTE market further validates the versatility of the software,” said Manish Singh, vice president of produce line management for Continuous Computing. “Adding Airspan to our growing list of LTE customers represents a major step toward our goal of being the protocol software solution of choice for manufacturers of 4G base stations of all types.”
