ReVerb Networks Unveils Intelligent Beamforming Solution at WiMAX World.
CHICAGO -- Smart antenna and intelligent beamforming pioneer, ReVerb Networks, unveiled its first beamforming solution, the rV100i today at WiMAX World. The system allows wireless broadband operators to spatially reuse radio frequency spectrum and increase their network capacity, sense and reject interfering signals, and extend their signal reach without costly investment in additional base stations and infrastructure.
The rV100i from ReVerb Networks is an integrated solution that adds beam-forming capability as either an end-to-end system within a WiMAX or Pre-WiMAX network or as a standalone sub-system integrated into the larger network.
The end-to-end system from ReVerb includes
* the rV100i network appliance, software and management interface as well as
* One or more Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) OFDM Base Station Subsystem(s) (BSS)
* Associated remote radio units
* The rV100i active antenna array (replaces the standard antennae included in a conventional system)
"It's our goal to deliver mission-critical wireless broadband data - where it's needed, when it's needed," said Bill Carlin, President and CEO of ReVerb Networks. "The rV100i is designed to achieve this by reusing frequency to increase capacity, providing interference cancellation, and better range and coverage through precise signal control. At the end of the day, our solution is designed to deliver confidence in wireless data communications. Safety and reliability for the users whose lives depend on these high speed networks - that's our priority."
Unlike anything else available, the beamforming capability delivered with the rV100i is simpler and more relevant to Pre-WiMAX current WiMAX applications, allowing the beamforming engine to be applied at the Intermediate Frequency (IF), so that unlike most alternative solutions - the system doesn't have to be integrated into the base station. The result is an increased efficiency and reliability at a much lower cost than adding redundant network nodes for the network operator.
ReVerb's network management system (NMS) software provides a compelling interface for the user. Running on a standard PC the rV100i's interface is fully web-enabled and allows users to graphically set the parameters of their rV100i signal processor and can be customized for the specific network tower location to include Google Maps[TM] visual depictions to show beam locations and patterns. Since network intelligence drives the adaptive beamforming parameters, the network interface displays the effective coverage, shape and bandwidth of each beam. The system controls both the uplink and downlink signal pattern to accommodate frequency selection, spatial location and beam shape. This rich user control with visual awareness combined with real-time diagnostics, ensures the system will perform to the highest capability.

The adaptive antenna processor within the rV100i uses ReVerb's patented Digital IF beam-forming technology to provide both uplink and downlink signal shaping capability. The product currently interfaces to analog IF coaxial systems and the company will also introduce support for additional radio head interfaces as they evolve, such as OBSAI RP-03.
ReVerb has collaborated extensively with systems integrators and lead customer candidates, and has slated rV100i customer trials and controlled introduction for the first quarter of next year.
