iCore® Network in a Box®

Easy to Use, Rapidly Deployable Communications


Tecore’s iCore® Network in a Box®(NIB) is a robust all-in-one, portable integrated hardware and software box which is capable of supporting an LTE Core Network, IMS-Core in addition to an eNodeB and Remote Radio Head (RRH). Providing highly operational availability through continued LTE coverage in a small, compact, portable form factor to meet critical public safety needs when backhaul connection to the Macro EPC is lost. A number of broad deployment scenarios include extreme disaster, special rescue missions, emergency management, armed forces, peace keeping missions and mobile communications networks in transit.

The iCore® NIB® provides voice, text, video and packet data services through standards based network elements developed to relevant 3GPP standards. Residing in the iCore® NIB® are Virtual Machines (VM) that include Network Core, IMS-Core, Base Band Unit (BBU) and Remote Radio Head (RRH) elements. This nodal component of the Evolved UMTS Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) provides a seamless LTE network solution. These enhanced integrated techniques translate into better quality of service and higher bit rates for packet data-intensive applications in addition to being lighter in weight. With this flexible architecture supporting network functions virtualization, the iCore® NIB® can be deployed quickly to meet the operator’s requirements in broad deployment scenarios.
