Virtualized, Carrier-Grade Mobile Core and Outdoor Small Cells Provide an Ideal LTE Solution for Hot Zone Deployments, Including Rural Communities

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) - Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. (Hitachi CTA) and Contela Inc. today announced availability of carrier-grade full-featured LTE solution for competitive carriers in the United States with Contela's LTE Outdoor Small Cells and Hitachi's Mobile Core, including ER5000 MME, SGSN and Small Cell Gateway.
