Quebec, QC, Canada / TheNewswire / March 20th, 2016 - NuRAN Wireless Inc. ("NuRAN Wireless" or the "Company") (CSE: NUR) (OTC: NRRWF), a leading supplier of mobile and broadband wireless solutions announces the launching of the Facebook Community Cellular Manager (CCM) Software for the NuRAN LiteCell base station.
With the goal of democratizing the access to mobile infrastructure solutions and enabling the emergence of innovative ways of providing connectivity to the Next Billion, NuRAN has created an innovative and distinct software for its base station products. This new software offering is known as NuRAN Open Access ("NOA"), and consists of open-source software as well as open interfaces at various layers of the mobile network protocol, including the Osmocom network-in-a-box and Facebook's CCM software. In the second quarter of 2017, the software will have all of its elements hosted directly within the NuRAN LiteCell base station unit, effectively transforming the NuRAN base station into a self-standing and autonomous GSM network.
The NOA software creates an alternate way of providing mobile connectivity by combining the pervasiveness and effectiveness of GSM technology at the access level with the simplicity of voice-over-IP (VoIP) for the network back-end. CCM provides a cloud-based platform to monitor the network and manage subscribers without requiring extensive knowledge in mobile networking.
This new software offering is targeted at operators looking to deploy and operate mobile infrastructure in a decentralized fashion migrating ownership of remote connectivity towards local and regional communication service providers. NOA also provides the freedom to modify or virtually change any software element within the network protocol for anyone looking to adapt and evolve the solution as needed while continuing to rely on the outstanding performance and maturity of NuRAN's carrier-grade base station.
CCM will also be available for the OpenCellular platform, a software-defined base station being created under the Facebook initiative known as the Telecom Infra Project ("TIP"). NuRAN will be managing the supply chain and distribution of the product once it is finalized.
The NOA branch is separate from and complementary to NuRAN's proprietary software called NuRAN Carrier Solutions ("NCS"), a carrier-grade protocol stack for mobile radio access which seamlessly connects to a mobile operator's existing core network to cost-effectively expand its footprint in remote areas.
"NOA broadens NuRAN's addressable market by providing a simplified and accessible solution to small 'Greenfield' operators as well as carriers looking for decentralized two-tiered operation with local partners. It also creates a productive environment for the developing community to further innovate. With the NOA and NCS complementary offering, NuRAN has the solution no matter the network topology or connectivity paradigm operators require" states Maxime Dumas, Head of Strategy & Business Development, NuRAN Wireless.
NuRAN has already provided NOA to select beta customers and partners. Deployments using this solution are expected to follow throughout the year.
