Radisys and Octasic Partner to Deliver 3G and LTE on a Dual-Mode Base Station, Allowing OEMs to Simultaneously Support Mobile Broadband and Legacy Air Interfaces

Octasic’s dual sector, dual-mode SDR base station platform, the OCTBTS 3500, integrates Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB small cell software and 3G Femtotality software onto a single platform for a dual-mode base station solution

HILLSBORO, OR, U.S. and MONTREAL, Canada – February 24, 2015Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, and Octasic Inc., a leading supplier of specialty small cell technology and platforms for wireless OEMs, today announced the integration of Radisys’ CellEngine™ TOTALeNodeB TM LTE small cell software and Femtotality 3G small cell software with Octasic’s dual-sector small cell SDR platform, the OCTBTS 3500. By adding support for both 3G and LTE small cell deployments on the same platform, customers can leverage a common software and baseband processing platform to support any combination of GSM, CDMA2000, HSPA, LTE air interfaces, or custom air interfaces.

In addition to mobile network operators, public safety and search and rescue organizations require highly compact, power-efficient and portable base stations. The OCTBTS 3500 with dual-mode LTE and 3G support allows for the rapid deployment of outdoor small cells, rural networks, deployable networks, private cellular networks and vehicle-mounted base stations to provide coverage when it’s needed, where it’s needed.

“Our OCTBTS 3500 dual-mode platform provides more range and portability than a commercial network, meeting our customers’ demands for a flexible mobile broadband solution,” said Doug Morrissey, CTO at Octasic. “Radisys’ award-winning small cell software is a proven solution for both 3G and LTE networks in the market place. As part of Octasic’s software ecosystem, Radisys provides our customers with access to a turnkey small cell solution enabling coverage and capacity that meets their needs.”
