May 21, 2019 / Linda Hardesty
Inland Cellular, a wireless carrier operating in the states of Idaho and Washington, has selected Parallel Wireless for upgrades to its network for expanded 4G LTE coverage and 5G upgradability.
Inland Cellular will use Parallel Wireless’ virtualized, software-defined remote radio head (RRH) operating in Band 71 (600 MHz). The software runs on common-off-the-shelf servers, and it enables migration from 4G to 5G through a software update.We provide infrastructure equipment from the cell site to the core,” said Eugina Jordan, VP of marketing at Parallel Wireless. “We apply virtualization principles not just to 4G or 5G, but we apply the principles of disaggregation of hardware and software to 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G.
