USA: Radisys Corp. and Rivada Networks announced that Radisys’ complete end-to-end LTE network solutions and Professional Services have enabled Rivada Networks’ Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage (DSA) innovation.
DSA, developed for the public safety market, is the first solution to enable the allocation of excess spectrum resources to other network providers on a real-time basis. For the standards-based network, Radisys leveraged its award-winning Trillium TOTALeNodeB and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) software, carrier-grade COM Express platform and Professional Services.
Radisys is the only company with hardware, software and LTE integration expertise all in-house, enabling the delivery of a pre-integrated solution that reduced Rivada’s integration risk and time to market significantly.
“Rivada Networks has opened a new chapter in the history of public safety communications,” said Declan Ganley, CEO, Rivada Networks. “Dynamic Spectrum Arbitrage unlocks the potential for supply and demand economics to bolster the quality and coverage of wireless broadband services. The technology is a market-changing breakthrough with serious potential to improve cellular communication networks and public safety communications capabilities, and our collaboration with Radisys has enabled us to bring this exciting technology to market.”
The US public safety market is evolving rapidly with the introduction of LTE networks. The industry is transitioning to a combination of private and public networks, all with available spectrum that often goes unused. Rivada’s DSA innovation allows unused spectrum to be easily reallocated across networks to where it’s needed most by combining prioritization of users on the network with a real-time auctioning process.
Deployment of DSA will lead to a new approach in how network operators use and charge for their network resources. Operators will be able to apply varying levels of priority to every user on the network and charge users based on demand, opening up the market for innovative business models. Radisys is providing the test network to demonstrate the viability of this industry-first solution.
