Following the launch of the world’s first Release 15 Cellular IoT base station, Ubiik, the leading industrial IoT solutions provider specialized in Advanced Metering Infrastructure, today announced availability of its Cellular IoT base station Ignition Kit for the 450MHz bands.

In conjunction with the 450 MHz Alliance Conference occurring on the 14th September 2022 in Cologne, Germany, these goRAN Cellular IoT Ignition Kits will be showcased by Ubiik during the event. A limited number of Ignition Kits will be made available to 450 MHz Alliance members in a specific offer.

The kit provides a Cellular IoT (Cat-1, LTE-M, NB-IoT) Base Station with connectivity out-of-the-box in all FDD and TDD bands in the 400MHz-2.6GHz range, inclusive of the 410MHz and 450MHz bands 31, 72, 87 and 88, along with selected User Equipments upon request.

“We have been working for more than a year with the 450 MHz Alliance members to define and create a product that significantly moves the Cellular IoT game on for the 450 MHz ecosystem” said by Fabien Petitgrand, CTO of Ubiik. “The Cellular IoT Ignition Kit includes a flexible software defined radio architecture and a full core network in a box, with LTE-M and NB-IoT support, delivering breakthrough cellular IoT connectivity.”

Ubiik goRAN is a full-software Release 15 Radio Access Network (RAN) designed for private networks. It supports multi-carrier standalone NB-IoT, standalone LTE-M in 1.4MHz and 3MHz bandwidth, as well as LTE Cat-1 and Cat-1bis up to 5MHz bandwidth. It can also support voice applications via VoLTE both for LTE-M and Cat 1. With its LTE Cat-1 and Ethernet backhaul options, it can operate either as an eNodeB connecting securely to an external Evolved Packet Core (EPC) or as an all-in-one Access Point with built-in EPC and integrated Home Subscriber Server (HSS). An external HSS can also be interfaced over 3GPP’s S6a standard interface.

Ubiik as a member of the 450 MHz Alliance focused its cutting edge RAN technologies with the guidance of the Alliance members to bring best in class performance in both Radio Access Network and Core Network. “We are delighted to be working with Ubiik on the latest innovation of private and public coverage for Cellular IoT and the additional contribution it gives to the 450 MHz ecosystem." Gosta Kallner, Chairman of the 450 MHz Alliance commented.

For private LTE networks deployed in the 450 Mhz band, goRAN can be used to operate a standalone LTE-M network in 1.4MHz or 3MHz, or a NB-IoT network with multi-carrier support (Release 14 non-anchor carriers feature). goRAN full-software architecture allows for a future-proof network deployment, and support for 450MHz operation in 3GPP bands 31/72/87/88. These bands offer spectrum ideal to deploy private and hybrid AMI networks for utilities.

Visit Ubiik at the 450 MHz Alliance Conference, open to all, September 14th at the Pullman Cologne, Germany, where goRAN Ignition Kits will be showcased.

About 450 MHz Alliance

450 MHz Alliance is an industry association that represents interests of the 450 MHz spectrum stakeholders. Our members include traditional wireless industry companies such as wireless carriers and equipment manufacturers, as well as companies representing various vertical markets for machine-to-machine communication. We strongly believe in the potential of the 450 MHz spectrum, and one of our main tasks is to help our members to achieve their objectives that otherwise would have been difficult to achieve if it were done on its own.
