We offer high performance 2G & 3G Base stations solutions for a wide variety of applications. Covering common 2G & 3G bands the base stations feature Software Defined Radio (SDR) which enables great flexibility of operation and future upgrade path.

2G & 3G networks using SDR base stations enjoy great flexibility, high performance as well as very low cost of operation and ownership. Use of VOIP for transport across the network enables the 2G & 3G Base station to connect remote terminals without need for a complex core network. This is ideal for low cost network deployments in environments where there is no existing 2G or 3G network core.

Enhanced Performance, Flexibility & Features

Our platform is an integrated advanced system capable of handling multiple 2G or 3G signal carriers. Provided in a sealed carrier grade unit for installation in most locations. The RF platform is at the forefront in terms of digital pre-distortion technology and signal processing associated to advanced PA architecture. This make the platform ideal for implementation within the cellular and advanced point to point communications market.

The 2G & 3G units are suitable as a multicarrier power Base station solution or aggregated within the deployment. To achieve maximum flexibility in terms of utilisation, units can support:

  • 2G or 3G Modes
  • Optional GPRS & EDGE support
  • Various transmit power level options up to 50W

The RF platform allows management through the Ethernet based connection. This allows for the transceiver to be managed or upgraded either via local connection or via secure remote protocols.

RF platform allows for the Rx inputs to operate in high or low sensitivity modes for maximum receiver performance.

Available in versions to cover common 2G & 3G Bands

The range is available in versions to cover all commonly used 2G & 3G bands. Here below is a list of the various bands used worldwide for 2G networks:
