MORE THAN TWO BILLION PEOPLE LACK ACCESS TO RELIABLE, AFFORDABLE, MOBILE PHONES. PARTICULARLY IN EMERGING MARKETS.
Range Networks is the worldwide leader in software-based mobile communications. Although most people can afford to buy a mobile phone, the large legacy equipment suppliers cannot bring service to remote areas with a low-density population. This market segment cannot afford to pay enough for the service to meet the provider's profit goals.
Range Networks fundamentally changes this equation. Range software only requires inexpensive, off-the-shelf hardware to deliver a full-featured profitable mobile network, while allowing you to charge a price that almost any subscriber can afford.
Range Networks supports 2G GSM, 2.5G GPRS, 2.75G EDGE and 3G UMTS today, and will soon support 4G LTE (E-UTRA). Although these technologies have very different air interfaces, with Range Networks, the Core Network is always the same. This means that a greenfield carrier can start with a simple 2G network and, over time, develop a mixed 2G-3G-4G system, using whatever technology is best adapted to particular sites.
Core network upgrades are just capacity upgrades, replacing existing servers with more cores or faster processors as the traffic volume increases, or by adding incremental software upgrades to provide new features, such as MMS, as they become available.
Our global ecosystem of partners sell, install, and support our low-cost, mobile networks. Range is linking mobile networks around the world, with proven results in Mexico, Latin America, Indonesia, Asia, Europe and Africa.
