CCS

CCS logo 140pxCCS is a privately owned company founded in Cambridge, UK in 2010. In March 2012, the company raised £4.5 million in order to complete development of a new product specifically targetted at the needs of metrocell wireless backhaul.

 

History

The company was founded in 2010 by John Porter and Steve Greaves, who were both original co-founders of Cambridge Broadband Networks in 2000.

In March 2013, the company raised £4.5 million funding to develop their product. It announced that it was already conducting a number of significant  trials with its partner Mobile Network Operators.

The company plans to deploy a number of "commercial pilot networks" with its product during 2013, with a view to large scale small cell deployments in 2014/15.

Product 

The overall solution uses a mesh architecture, whereby each node can communicate with any other. The system is self-organising and self-healing, adapting to changes in the environment and continually optimising performance.

Individual remote units are lightweight, low power and small in form factor - fitting the requirements for unobtrusive and easily installed equipment at street level. Units have a 270 degree field of view, which reduces or avoids the need for alignment procedures during installation and also allows multiple connections with the same wide field of view.

The initial product launched for use at 28GHz, requiring line-of-sight between nodes. Future variants are planned for 26GHz, 32GHz and 42GHz bands.

Throughput is specified up to 450Mbps per node with a low latency of 125 microseconds per hop.
