Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. and Contela, Inc. Partner to Deliver Enterprise LTE Small Cell Solution

RICHARDSON, Texas --(Business Wire)--

Hitachi Communication Technologies America, Inc. (Hitachi CTA) today announced that the company is partnering with Contela, Inc. to deliver an end-to-end LTE Small Cell solution. The solution leverages the Hitachi ER5000 Small Cell Gateway (News - Alert) and Contela's LTE Small Cell Access Point for enterprise and public applications. The combined solution ensures stable high speed service, and supports faster deployment of high-speed LTE (News - Alert) network coverage.

An LTE Small Cell, also known as a Home eNode B (HeNB) or a femto cell, provides LTE base-station functionality in a very small, cost-effective form factor, ensuring the highest data capacity and RF coverage for business and home users. In wireless networks where data demands are constantly outpacing existing infrastructure, the Hitachi/Contela (News - Alert) LTE Small Cell solution enables the efficient handling of data traffic while minimizing the signaling load presented to the existing EPC elements in the core network.

Hitachi CTA has developed and deployed telecommunications equipment in extremely competitive and advanced network environments and continues this tradition by delivering a leading edge end-to-end LTE small cell solution. The Hitachi solution provides wireless operators with an LTE Small Cell with field-proven stability and a wealth of platform features that incorporate years of learning from some of the largest LTE macro and small cell deployments in the world.

"The Small Cell Gateway leverages the Hitachi ER5000 MME's proven subscriber and mobility management software and demonstrates the innovative architectural flexibility of Hitachi's solution," said Don Keeler, VP of PLM & Business Development, Hitahi Communication Technologies America, Inc. "We are pleased to provide this product as part of the end-to-end LTE Small Cell solution with Contela."

"Contela is delighted to join with Hitachi CTA to provide our field-proven Small Cell product and management system as part of this solution," said Jang Ahn Kwon, Contela CMO & Vice President. "Service providers can now quickly and easily provide the LTE services that their subscribers want, and ensure maximum performance to the end user."

Hitachi CTA will be providing private demonstrations of the LTE Small Cell solution at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona this week. Wireless operators interested in viewing a private demonstration may contact Hitachi CTA before the show.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
