IOPS Network in a Box®

Easy to Use, Rapidly Deployable Communications


Isolated Operations for Public Safety (IOPS) capabilities has been defined by the larger wireless community to specifically address the operational requirements and configurations of tactical LTE systems for public safety. As a compliant system, Tecore’s IOPS Network in a Box® (NIB) allows for the rapid deployment of LTE services capabilities to an impacted area.  The all-in-one, transportable and ready-in-minutes network solutions capable of supporting an LTE Core Network IMS-Core in addition to an eNodeB and 2×20 watt integrated Remote Radio Head (RRH). By delivering multiple access technologies and streamlining the network through an IP-based architecture, it provides responders with the most compact, adaptable, and cost-effective platform for rapidly deploying. This new breed of Cell on Wheels (COW) or Mobile Cell Site is optimized for the LTE environment and can be adapted for integrated, mesh or standalone communications.

Residing in the IOPS NIB® are Virtual Machines (VM) that can be integrated with Tecore’s Base Band Unit (BBU). This nodal component of the e-UTRAN provides a seamless LTE network solution. These enhanced techniques translate into better quality of service and higher bit rates for packet data-intensive applications. With a flexible architecture supporting network function virtualization and scalability from fewer than 100 to tens of thousands of mobile subscribers, the IOPS NIB® can be deployed quickly to meet the customer requirements in multiple deployment scenarios.
