ZenFi Fronthaul and Backhaul Fiber Enables Effective Base Station Hoteling Model For Wireless Carrier Networks
New York, NY – October 15, 2014 – ZenFi Networks, Inc., New York’s premier provider for connectivity and colocation delivered over a private dedicated dark fiber optic network, is set to open the plenary sessions at the Northeast DAS and Small Cell Association (NEDAS) Fall In-Building Wireless Summit on October 22, 2014, with a presentation titled “Base Station Hoteling, Disrupting the Model.”
Next-generation mobile network operators are looking for ways help reduce cost, simplify networks and share resources. Base Station Hoteling as a network architecture enables wireless carrier networks to aggregate their headend gear in a central location, allowing for more cost effective deployment and sharing of resources for reduce operational costs. ZenFi’s purpose-built fronthaul and backhaul network to distributed base stations is a key component in the movement towards Centralized-RAN (C-RAN) as carriers look towards on-demand resource allocation, virtualized software, definable and tunable architecture, and lower cost general purpose hardware.
“ZenFi’s innovative network solutions directly address the key issues associated with the costs and time to deploy mobile network solutions within buildings and across metro environments,” comments Ray La Chance, President and CEO of ZenFi Networks, Inc. “These solutions support a wide variety of mobile network deployments including DAS, Small Cell, macro site deployments and more by leveraging a highly reliable distributed model that no other provider offers today.”
ZenFi’s purpose-built network leverages a neighborhood network and colocation infrastructure model specifically designed to support the wireless service provider requirement for densification – bringing more small cells, in-building and outdoor Distributed Antenna System (DAS) remotes, Remote Radio Heads (RRHs), macro sites and Wi-Fi access points closer to the user. Unlike traditional carrier networks that are built for enterprise applications and have sparse fiber density between end-user sites, centralized data centers and carrier hotels, ZenFi’s network is designed to support widely distributed wireless equipment interconnection and colocation. ZenFi’s dense fiber optic fronthaul network footprint is homed to a series of distributed colocation facilities (Base Station Hotels) for aggregation and backhaul to major interconnection facilities. The ZenFi model makes widespread adoption of Fiber-to-the-Antenna (FTTA) a cost-effective and realistic solution for wireless carriers and neutral hosts.
