Eden Rock Communications Officially Launches Eden-NET Self-Optimizing Resource Management Solution for LTE Deployments

Advanced SON Solution Provides Impressive Network Performance Improvements

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  CTIA Enterprise & Applications 2010, Booth #246 -- Eden Rock Communications, LLC, a leading innovator of 4G wireless Self Optimizing Network (SON) solutions, has officially launched Eden-NET™, a real-time coordinated multi-node resource optimization solution, and disclosed its most recent performance benchmarks at CTIA Enterprise & Applications 2010 in San Francisco. Eden Rock will be showcasing its flagship product during the conference at booth #246.

Eden-NET provides operators with substantial gains in the performance of their Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks through advanced scheduling of radio resources among multiple neighboring wireless access nodes or eNodeBs. Based upon simulations of LTE network deployments in Eden Rock's 3GPP-compliant system simulator, the system performance gains from Eden-NET in a typical LTE network deployment are targeted to be 40 percent in network system capacity and 200 percent in cell edge performance.

Eden-NET enables wireless operators to increase revenue for their LTE deployments via higher data rate services offerings and increased numbers of total subscribers supported. Eden-NET's performance benefits ultimately equate to a greater return on wireless spectrum investment.

"If efficiency -- spectral and network -- has driven the interest in LTE, there can be no denying the importance of SON as a part of the equation," noted Peter Jarich, service director with Current Analysis. "Yet, while the standardization of SON ensures its appearance in most LTE network portfolios, innovations such as those in Eden Rock's Eden-NET solution will be key for getting the most out of the technology."

A standard set of SON capabilities has been endorsed by the Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN) Alliance and 3GPP. Eden Rock is focused on the more advanced "self-optimizing" components in the SON roadmap that move beyond self-configuration features to network performance and capacity gains. This portion of the roadmap is typically regarded as the most complex, requiring a tremendous amount of expertise and innovation.

"Our team has unique expertise with the design of 4G systems and the deployment of 4G networks. Our focus has spawned numerous inventions in the self-optimizing space that have resulted in a fundamentally new approach for the real-time coordinated multi-node resource optimization," said Chaz Immendorf, president and CEO of Eden Rock Communications. "Based on our targeted performance benchmarks, we expect Eden-NET to be highly impactful within the wireless industry. We are continuing to drive innovations in this space to enable even greater benefits."

The Eden-NET system consists of a lightweight agent residing on the eNodeB, the Eden-NET Multi-node Radio Resource Controller and a fully featured element management system and console. The solution features new highly innovative techniques for dynamic RF interference management, dynamic load balancing, and advanced scheduling of resources among neighboring wireless access nodes. The company is building a robust IP portfolio around its innovations and has filed 41 patent applications to date. For more details on the Eden-NET solution, please click here.
