Shortly after XCellAir announced the launch of their strategic ecosystem, FierceWirelessTech published a feature story on the company, XCellAir emerges from stealth mode, launches ecosystem for LTE, Wi-Fi network optimization.

Monica Alleven, editor of FierceWirelessTech, interviewed XCellAir co-founders and proven technology experts: Amit Agarwal, president; Narayan Menon, CTO and EVP of engineering, and Todd Mersch, EVP of sales and marketing, to gain insight into one of the industry's first cloud-based, multi-vendor, multi-technology mobile network management and optimization solutions.

As an InterDigital commercial initiative, the company was formed to meet the challenges presented by an evolving network landscape through enabling wireless service providers to efficiently manage, optimize and monetize their wireless networks.

Their strategic ecosystem features a network comprised of Wi-Fi access points and LTE small cell vendor, as well as self-organizing network (SON) suppliers that will help wireless service providers unlock untapped potential of Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets) consisting of Wi-Fi and / or cellular small cells. The goal of the ecosystem is to deliver immense increases in network capacity, extended coverage and lower cost-per-bit.

FierceWirelessTech quoted Menon, “the way we've architected our solution… it's inherently multi-technology, multi-vendor. It will evolve very nicely to support 5G small cells as well." In addition, its technology has implications for Licensed Assisted Access (LAA)-LTE also known as LTE-Unlicensed.
