Warid to Deploy Small Cell from SpiderCloud for Strong LTE Coverage

Warid has announced that it will deploy small cell from SpiderCloud Wireless for strong indoor and public LTE mobile coverage in several cities of Pakistan.

Emtel Communications will be integration partner for Warid and SmartCloud in this contract.

SpiderCloud’s E-RAN system incorporates 3G, 4G and WiFi technology in parallel to offer enriched multimode mobile broadband for the consumers.

SpiderCloud’s multimode solution helps operators save their spectrum which is particularly crucial for Warid as it is deploying its 4G LTE without buying any additional spectrum.

SmartCloud claims that installation time for the solution take just a few days.

A statement from SpiderCloud says the first deployments are targeted for hundreds of different locations in the major cities of Pakistan with 4G Radio Nodes providing access using band 3 and Services Nodes that are securely connected to Warid Telecom’s core network.

“SpiderCloud enables us to provide our customers, particularly our corporate customers, with a high-capacity, high-performance, scalable 4G solution. This endorses Warid’s continued commitment to provide the best possible quality service to our customers,” said Muhammad Aslam Saqib, Director Technical Strategy & RAN Planning with Warid Telecom. “SpiderCloud has already proven itself with some of the world’s largest mobile operators, powering mobility inside of some of the world’s largest brands and financial institutions.”

SpiderCloud’s system includes a Services Node (SCSN) that controls up to 100 self-organizing, multi-access 3G and 4G small cells, providing reliable coverage and capacity for enterprise and venues of up to 1.5 million square feet.

Warid aims to cover 10 more cities with its LTE coverage within the next 10 months, and 20 cities in the next 20 months.

Interestingly, Ericsson – a major rival to SpiderCloud’s small cell offering, with its own Radio Dot system – is the LTE radio access network supplier to Warid.

For SpiderCloud, the deal marks a move into the world’s largest mobile continent and follows wins at US number one operator Verizon Wireless and Vodafone Group in Europe.

        That will happen always because Warid is not offering VoLTE (voice over LTE) voice communication will always be through 2G
