As regulators open up spectrum under Licensed Shared Access/Authorised Shared Access rules, the opportunities for LTE networks to replace other means of communications will grow exponentially. Other industry initiatives such as MuLTEFire which utilises existing unlicensed spectrum (currently used by WiFi networks) for LTE deployment will further accelerate this trend.
Unlicensed LTE will require highly efficient and cost effective solutions that can serve end-customers looking to replace their legacy networks e.g. enterprise WiFi with LTE. Athonet’s massively scalable solutions (which can scale up to tens of millions of users or down to just a handful of users) are perfect for meeting this requirement. Our Software-as-Service model provides a highly economic use-case for operators, enterprises or other service providers looking to participate in this fast unfolding opportunity.
