Expanding in-building cellular potential

ONECELL® enables mobile network operators to meet the growing demand for reliable LTE service where it matters most—indoors—and easily transition to 5G services when they’re ready. The innovative cloud-RAN small cell architecture creates a single intelligent “super” cell inside commercial buildings and public spaces. No individual cell borders means no handovers or interference, just high-capacity, low latency performance, deployed over standard Ethernet LANs. Wireless operators can meet the soaring demand for mobile data—now and in the future—while offloading traffic from their macro networks. For enterprises, this translates to robust LTE and 5G deployed on standard IT infrastructure.

ONECELL uses an IT-friendly deployment model to bring the promise of 5G to enterprises.

Mobile Experience Matters

Increasingly, our mobile devices are our first choice for accessing information and getting things done. However, great devices and apps are only as good as the signal reaching them.

The System

ONECELL is a modular, multi-operator, in-building 4G/LTE and 5G wireless solution. The system consists of: 

  • The Baseband Controller is responsible for performing all baseband processing and scheduling, and it coordinates the transmitter and receiver functions across all Radio Points.
  • Radio Points transmit and receive radio frequency (RF) signals over the air and perform some layer-1 baseband processing.
  • The system operates on standard Gigabit Ethernet links and Ethernet switches. As a turnkey partner, CommScope can provide all the cabling and switching needed.
  • The Device Management System enables automated provisioning and ongoing support.

CommScope is committed to serving and expanding the in-building wireless market in partnership with neutral hosts and mobile operators. Our ONECELL C-RAN small cell system and DMS are designed specifically to meet the needs of multi-operator, neutral hosted deployments. Together, we are making the in-building wireless future possible.
