Private Networks

Today’s mobile operator networks are overburdened due to the exponential increase in data traffic by today’s data hungry consumers.

While the amount of wireless traffic is increasing, competition is reducing profitability and average revenue per user (ARPU) in the commercial market. Coupled with the advent of new technologies such as the Internet of Things, vehicle to vehicle communications (autonomous driving), 5G NR and massive video streaming, operators are facing capacity deficits. In parallel, cellular communications initiatives that use unlicensed spectrum, dedicated licensed spectrum, or sub-leased operator spectrum at competitive rates are increasing.

These private initiatives possess the same functionality of a fully realized 4G/5G cellular network without the costs, issues, hurdles, or vulnerabilities associated with large national operators.

Given these trends, the market finds itself at a unique inflection point because there is a fundamental need for connectivity everywhere. Without connectivity, all additional transformational technologies are limited and cannot be exercised to their full potential. Thus, there is a need for flexible and fluid, multi-purpose, dedicated private cellular networks designed to fit any application without the rigidity, capacity constraints, and costs synonymous with the entrenched mobile operators.

WSS is poised to fill that need with the following:

  • Complete private network solutions for any customer across all vertical markets
  • Deploying standalone broadband critical communications network
  • Internet of things sensor data network

WSS Products

The LCS-168 is man-portable (Manpack) LTE/5G communications solution designed for reliability in mission-critical data comms and elevated mobility, ideally suited for tactical teams on the move or at rest operating at the edge of the network and/or in degraded environments.

The LCS-167 is a software-defined, combined 4G/5G connectivity solution. Similar in scope to the earlier LCS-157 platform, it is designed to meet strenuous requirements where a flexible, vehicle-based solution providing a complete 4G/5G network to the surrounding area is a necessity.

The gX-3306 is comprised of our advanced tactical digital baseband unit (gU) which includes a combined 5G CU, DU and 4G functions. Together with the advanced radio unit (gRU) these major components feature a complete gNodeB or eNodeB.

WSS is proud to present its combined 4G/5G small cell platform, the LTCS-5XX, offering both a single and multi-standard solution.

The Network-On-The-Edge (NOTE) Family of Tactical Broadband Platforms are systems specifically designed and optimized to be light plug and play solutions.

WSS’ cutting edge radio unit platform, the gRU-91XX for 5G, represents a qualitative leap in NR compliant radio units. It is a high-performance radio head platform designed to support 5G NR requirements.

Designed to be a stand-alone product or part of a larger design, the 095 is a robust sensor designed to handle multiple scenarios.

WSS’ test measurement portfolio includes many different tools that will help perform the tests required for safe and fully operational deployment of networks.

MyNET is a complete Element/Network Management system, which enables administrators or network operators to configure, manage, and remotely update eNBs/gNBs, remote radio heads, and devices in the field.

The Department of Defense & Public Safety organizations are constantly looking for to upgrade their capabilities and realize any advantage that will enable the warfighter or first responder; to accomplish the mission with greater efficiency, speed and safety.

WSS’s 5G Macro-Proxy(Smart Relay) is used for reamplification of select downlink and uplink signals. In poor coverage areas, cellular signals can be weak, resulting in inadequate end-user device (EUD) function. This is particularly relevant for 5G and the poor propagation characteristics of some of its operating bands.
