Company – About

RED Technologies' self-organizing network and dynamic spectrum management solutions help telecom, public safety and military operators maximize their infrastructure and spectrum usage.

RED Technologies’ SON solutions for dynamic spectrum management enable the release of high volumes of underused licensed spectrum into the marketplace.

5G-touch.jpg

As telecoms markets move towards 5G and in the face of current and predicted spectrum shortages and increasing demand for accessible and affordable services, policy-makers and industry stakeholders have devised ground-breaking regulatory frameworks called Licensed Shared Access (LSA)* in Europe and Spectrum Access System (SAS)** in the US to allow operators to optimize and monetize existing spectrum. Small cell technology has also been designed to help people use spectrum more efficiently in localized areas.

RED Technologies was born from these spectrum sharing innovations. Its founders have patented the means to enable LSA and SAS, and augment the performance of small cells.

* Known in the US as Authorized Shared Access (ASA)
** Spectrum Access System (SAS) enables a three-tiered sharing framework called FCC (Federal Communications Commission)

LTE and new spectrum are both available for public safety use and require innovative spectrum management systems

Commercial networks

Mobile is a crucial foundation for productivity increases, product innovation, service growth and jobs. Yet, people are not as empowered as they could be because traditional spectrum licensing models are no match for demand.

Issue

Today people expect to access the network anywhere at anytime, and industry business models across all sectors are increasingly dependent on mobile networks. Mobile devices, wireless connectivity and applications together make up the current wave of innovation in information and communications technology known as the Internet of Things and are critical to the success of cloud computing and big data.

Yet, the transformational potential of evolved mobile services can only be realized if people everywhere can access them easily and affordably. In reality, users - especially those in densely populated areas and in homes with multiple devices - experience network access issues and high costs.

With 5G on the horizon and mobile network traffic continuing to increase[1] there is intense focus new methods of spectrum access.


Solution

RED Technologies’ innovations allow operators and public service providers to manage unprecedented mobile growth and spectrum shortage in a way that enables fast, secure and lasting change.


RED Technologies’ SON solutions for LSA and SAS dynamic spectrum sharing.

Some large incumbent holders of licensed spectrum (e.g. military, satellite, some commercial users) do not use all of their frequencies, all of the time, everywhere. Recent industry and government collaboration on the issue of spectrum shortage has resulted in new spectrum sharing models, called Licensed Shared Access (LSA) and Spectrum Access System (SAS). These models enable incumbents to sub-let their unused spectrum - without interfering with incumbent usage - to mobile operators through multi-lateral agreements overseen by regulators. Incumbents can share their spectrum in time, frequency and/or geography to release high volumes of underused licensed spectrum into the marketplace.

RED Technologies’ LSAlive© and SASlive© solutions use SON technology and the company’s award-winning real time radio environment map innovations to allow incumbents to evaluate and plan spectrum shared deployments, localize zones for spectrum sharing geographically and minimize the likelihood of interference between the incumbent and the secondary network. The incumbent’s network is protected in a number of ways through standardized information elements, well-defined interfaces and secure access protocols.


RED Technologies’ SON solutions for small cells and HetNet.

Telecoms operators increasingly promote small cells to help their customers circumvent the connectivity issues that result from spectrum shortage. Small cells take connected devices off cellular towers, enabling people in offices, homes and high density areas like airports to dynamically leverage network capacity in a localized zone.

RED Technologies’ SON solutions for the growing complexity and scale of mobile networks makes the planning, configuration, management, improvement and healing of small cells networks faster and simpler, enabling a better use of spectrum.

RED Technologies SON solutions provide:

  • Design scalability for handling the growing complexity and scale of mobile networks.
  • A “by-nature” big data system with embedded analytics for processing the high volume of network data.
  • Real-time radio environment mapping technology to enable various and autonomous optimization tasks such as complex SON heterogeneous network situations.
  • Key performance indicators to feed back into the system for preventive actions and early troubleshooting.

[1] Qualcomm, the world leader in mobile technologies, predicts, with wide industry support, that mobile network traffic will continue to increase 1000 times by 2020.

Our solutions assess, localize, coordinate, monitor and optimize spectrum management for telecommunications, public safety and military sectors.

Private networks

RED Technologies’ solutions allow industry, operators and policy-makers to meet mobile growth and spectrum demand differently and in a way that effects rapid, lasting and far-reaching industry change.

Issue

It is crucial for the military and emergency services to communicate effectively during times of crisis. Police, armed forces, ambulance personnel and other response teams operating at the scene of an emergency need constant, secure, reliable, interference free private network coverage.

However, private mobile radio networks do not always have the necessary reach, and coverage can be lost as teams move location during an emergency. Interference between multiple private mobile networks is also common.

During recent emergencies, networks have failed to provide necessary support to field teams shining a spotlight on the need for innovation in radio management for tactical mobile networks.

About an hour after the attacks at Brussels Airport, the mobile-phone network went down. “We used emails, iPad messages, others used WhatsApp,” Mr. De Witte [the governor of the Flemish Brabant province who coordinated the rescue operation at Brussels Airport during the terrorist attack on 22 March 2016] said.

Lt. Col. Eric Mergny who coordinated the medical response at Brussels Airport said that Astrid [A radio-communications system for Belgian officials] limited his communications to the point where he wasn’t able to check what hospitals nearby had the capacity to take in patients.

Solution

RED Technologies public safety solutions for private mobile radio networks.

Deploying a nomadic critical communications network i.e. a tactical private mobile radio (PMR) network, may be the only way to re-establish secure communications during crisis situations, and in particular, when the security and protection of people is threatened, such as by a natural disaster or an act of terrorism. It is therefore crucial that this network operates flawlessly to manage and accompany these situations, without unexpected events, and that the system is immediately deployable.

In this context, RED Technologies has developed REM for Public Safety which combines:

  • Radio environment map technology offering real-time cartography of a radio environment, PMR radio effective coverage and capacity,
  • Licensed shared access, a novel framework enabling spectrum depollution and sharing between networks operated by governmental and/or commercial users, and,
  • Self-organizing networks to manage day-to-day PMR and insert a tactical-PMR within an existing radio environment within a couple of minutes and manage user priority access and mobility in and out.
