The AttoGateway is being used in Middleprise CRAN applications for in-building densification. It has applications in Offices, Airports and Urban Centers.
The AttoGateway is an Enterprise level Gateway that includes a Small Cell Gateway, a Security Gateway and a Local Gateway. The AttoGateway aggregates Small Cells into a single network element and integrates them into the Mobile Operators Voice, Data and Multimedia networks. The AttoGateway is Multi Operator Neutral Host, allowing simultaneous connectivity to several operators.
The AttoGateway includes a Local Gateway that allows the subscribers IP traffic to be routed directly to the Enterprise LAN instead of being routed through the network core. This provides additional security for the Enterprise customer and reduces the load on the operator’s core network. For specialist applications this also gives the user lower latency connectivity to the network.
The AttoGateway also includes a Security Gateway that encrypts the signalling (and optionally data) back to the core network. Communications to and from the eNodeBs can also be secured in this way.
The AttoGateway is fast, robust, reliable and conformant; keeping signalling and data at the Mobile Edge: increasing efficiency in the core.
