Season’s Greetings from SpiderCloud

December 21, 2015
sg2015In 2015, the enterprise business market and our vision of the “Mobile Enterprise” really started taking shape in front of us. For SpiderCloud, 2015 was a yet another breakthrough year. We saw customer commercialization accelerate with:
  • Verizon Wireless, announced in December 2014, is now deploying SpiderCloud in a number of their markets.
  • Cisco and SpiderCloud formed an OEM/Collaboration Partnership. Together, we developed a scalable 3G/LTE small cell module (USC 8718) that plugs into Cisco 3600/3700 Wi-Fi Access Points.
  • America Movil’s Mexican operating company, Telcel, announced the deployment of SpiderCloud for business, education, and government markets in Mexico.
Throughout the past year, the industry awarded us with many awards in recognition of both innovation and enterprise market success:

Looking forward, 2016 will continue trends we see now for scaling, virtualization, and the blurring of lines between enterprise and telecom.

TRENDS TO WATCH

  • Mobile Edge Computing – the European Telecommunications Standards Institute MEC initiative is creating an environment for software developers to create Apps and services that will run at the edge of the Telecom network in any hardware. This is a necessary evolution for our 5G future.
  • Unlicensed Spectrum – Mobile operators have an opportunity to supplement their licensed spectrum with unlicensed, without making any change to their core network infrastructure.
  • Enterprise Technology Acquisition – release of Cisco USC 8718 module for Wi-Fi and right-to-use agreements for spectrum begin to open markets for traditional enterprise systems integrators to sell cellular infrastructure to enterprise buyers.
Enjoy Your Holidays & Happy New Year!

América Móvil and Telcel go Big with Small Cell Systems from SpiderCloud

April 7, 2015

Following a successful launch in June 2014, Telcel and América Móvil was kind enough to let us share the news at Informa’s LTE LatAm event taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this week — where SpiderCloud’s own Amit Jain is speaking.

This is a significant announcement for SpiderCloud and our business partners. And, unlike Ericsson – is not a “pilot” in a single building (“Ericsson Radio Dot installed at commercial building…”).

Small Cell systems have already been deployed and “turned on” for dozens of enterprise customers, with hundreds more planned. Gerardo Aguirre, director of network engineering with Telcel places the importance of this commercial rollout into context:

Our largest customers in Mexico demand and expect a superior mobile network experience at all times. With SpiderCloud as our go-to in-building network solution, Mexico’s business, education and government customers are experiencing the leading edge of in-building mobility as part of our continued commitment to deliver a superior mobile experience.”

Together with our business partners in the region (Cisco, NEC and one more major player), we will work with Telcel and América Móvil to bring in-building services to major metropolitan areas in South America.

SpiderCloud is fast becoming the recognized leader for scalable small cell systems. According to Infonetics (March 2015),SpiderCloud leads the enterprise small cell market as a result of an early focus on the medium-to-large enterprise segment, followed by Alcatel-Lucent.”

SpiderCloud’s system has been deployed by leading operators such as: América Móvil, Verizon, Vodafone UK, Netherlands, EE in United Kingdom (Cisco), Telcel in Mexico, Avea in Turkey (NEC), Warid Telecom in Pakistan, and several more undisclosed operators.

Why SpiderCloud?  We continue to innovate, and the dual-band 3G/LTE and LTE/LTE system with 200 Sectors is the industry’s most flexible and scalable small cell system. Last month we announced the additions of Beacons, Carrier Aggregation use of flexible spectrum bandwidth, and support for Multiple Operators – all part of the same easy-to-deploy over Cat/5/6 Ethernet system (see news) The innovations will help drive down the carrier’s total cost of ownership for large, scalable, indoor small cell deployments.

Another significant move, announced in Barcelona at MWC’15, was Cisco’s news that the #1 enterprise systems provider will resell SpiderCloud’s portfolio (USC 8000 Series). We also developed a radio “snap on” attachment for Cisco’s existing Aironet 3600/3700 Wi-Fi access points (the most popular enterprise Wi-Fi in the world), thus integrating radio access with existing Wi-Fi infrastructure – giving Cisco the ability to target all of its existing Wi-Fi deployments with a simple 3G/4G radio upgrade, thus driving more customer adoption for mobile operators worldwide.

SpiderCloud’s technology is the only small cell system that’s successfully competing, innovating and winning against Ericsson and Huawei for large-scale in-building coverage and capacity solutions — sold to mobile operators. With our partners, it’s now pedal to the metal. Catch up if you can, or give us a call to partner.
