and GSM-1900, the RapidCell supports any commercial GSM mobile phone.
Up to 96 channels of capacity can be supported in this compact base
Adaptable: The RapidCell Base
Station supports multiple modes of operation. First, it may operate
in a stand-alone mode, supporting mobile-to-mobile communications,
without any external network equipment. In this mode, RapidCell
may also be configured to support AirNet's AirSite Backhaul Free
base station supporting up to 12 cells of GSM coverage. Second,
RapidCell may support the GSM Abis interface to GSM core infrastructure,
providing all the capabilities and mobility that the GSM wireless
standard provides. Third, the RapidCell supports an ISDN PRI interface.
This will allow connectivity for GSM mobile handsets to nearly any
existing telecommunication switch or PBX including direct connection
to the PSTN without requiring expensive GSM core infrastructure
equipment. Both the GSM Abis and ISDN PRI interfaces support backhaul
to network equipment via a satellite link, allowing quick deployment
of GSM coverage to remote areas. Additionally, the RapidCell will
support packet data interface via IP including VoIP support with
only a software upgrade.
Software Upgradeable: The core
architecture of the RapidCell is based on AirNet's Software Defined
Radio hardware architecture. The flexibility of the architecture
allows future capabilities such as GPRS, EDGE and VoIP to be added
to the RapidCell with software only upgrades.
Secure: RapidCell supports
the most secure communications capabilities of any commercial cellular
standard provided with GSM user authentication and encryption. Additionally,
the RapidCell has been tested and verified to support the higher
levels of secure communications using type 1 and type 4 NSA encryption
enabled GSM mobile phones.
