SpiderCloud Wireless and Tango Networks Work Together to Speed Up Unified Communications Services with Enterprise Small Cell Systems

SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc., the leading innovator of scalable small cell Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) systems for mobile operators, and Tango Networks, a leading technology provider that enables enterprises to embrace the power of Mobile Unified Communications with any mobile phone, today announced that the two companies have been working together to help mobile operators deliver Mobile Unified Communications (Mobile UC) services and advanced PBX functionality over scalable enterprise-class small cell networks.

The growing demand for mobility in the workplace requires a targeted multi-access small cell system that extends connectivity across the enterprise without requiring a special handset or dialer application or by forcing mobile voice to go over Wi-Fi. A scalable system that can provide reliable mobile coverage and capacity inside buildings helps mobile service providers monetize their small cell installations by extending Mobile UC services and providing high quality wireless access to enterprise customers.

SpiderCloud is the first company to offer mobile operators with a true multi-mode access system with 3G, LTE/4G and dual-band Wi-Fi for reliable mobile services indoors for enterprise customers of any size. The E-RAN system consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that is deployed inside the enterprise premise. The SCSN creates one trusted tunnel to the operator's core network and can control over 100 self-organizing and multi-access small cells that can be installed in just days using an enterprise-Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN). SpiderCloud is the only company that supports “soft handover” between radio nodes, which ensures that voice calls and data sessions are not dropped as people move within a building. Aggregating all the radio nodes at the services node layer optimizes backhaul and allows service providers and enterprises to more easily control and manage the system.

When combined with Tango Networks’ Small Cell Connect, the joint mobility solution enables mobile operators to provide enterprises with the ability to extend their Mobile UC services and applications, and PBX functionality from their IP telephony network through their small cells as part of the trusted carrier macro-cellular network. The solution extends optimized Mobile UC and PBX functionality and services both inside and outside the enterprise, allowing users to use their mobile phone just like a desk phone.

“We’re pleased to work with SpiderCloud to help enable unmatched mobile connectivity and Mobile UC applications for mobile operators and their enterprise customers,” said Brenda Boehm, President and CEO of Tango Networks. “Our market-leading Mobile UC applications and extensive PBX integration deliver a truly unique solution that provides the seamless mobility users require to effectively conduct business while on-the-go.”

Tango Networks’ solution utilizes a secure tunnel created by the SpiderCloud E-RAN to enable an aggregation point for call signaling between macrocells, small cells, and the enterprise IP telephony infrastructure. This allows enterprise employees to use their existing devices to enjoy familiar PBX call and messaging features – such as integrated voice mail, single number, presence and short-digit dialing – for superior mobility and reachability.

“SpiderCloud and Tango Networks’ joint development efforts help speed up adoption of mobile operator-led Unified Communications services inside the enterprise,” said Michael Gallagher, CEO of SpiderCloud Wireless. “A managed small cell network that provides reliable mobile voice and data access, integrated with the enterprise PBX and IP telephony network, will help enterprise customers save time, money and resources as mobile operators become a trusted partner for mobile services beyond minutes and devices.”

SpiderCloud will be attending Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28. Interested parties can request a meeting by sending an email to [email protected] or by stopping by the company’s meeting room in Hall 2, Room A130.

Tango Networks will also be attending Mobile World Congress. For meeting inquiries, please visit: http://www.tango-networks.com/mobile-world-congress-meeting/

Tango Networks’ comprehensive solution gives enterprises the ability to extend Mobile UC and PBX capabilities to their users with a high level of control and management that their IT departments demand. Tango Networks’ flexible deployment seamlessly integrates with virtually all IP PBX/Centrex infrastructures, enabling an effective “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policy that reduces the capital burden on employers, while offering the ability to integrate in CPE, hosted or cloud environments.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
