A small, specialist small cell software company based in Munich, Germany which provides software stacks and consultancy to femtocell and small cell equipment vendors.
The founders had previously worked in Optimay, which provided software stacks and services for GSM and 3G handsets. That company had worked closely with many well known semiconductor chip vendors and provided a reference stack incorporated into many 2G and 3G phones.
Node-H offers both 3G and LTE portable and platform independent software, specifically integrating with both Broadcom and Qualcomm chipsets. It could also be ported easily to other hardware platforms. The software is a complete solution which requires only the licence of a pre-integrated TR.069 management library. Features include support for external basestation sniffing (2G/3G/LTE), Self-Optimising Networks (SON) and Radio Resource Management (RRM).
The company's unique differentiator is their "virtual verification system" which regression tests the software more quickly and thoroughly than can be done on the hardware platform alone.
They have publicly demonstrated simultaneous use of up to 24 handsets on a 3G small cell, and have announced up to 32 channel capacity. They introduced LTE in 2012 and subsequently announced VoLTE support in 2014, and TD-LTE support in 2015
Node-H are understood to be supplier to Free France for their large scale 3G and 4G residential femtocell deployment, and are publicly recognised by TalkTalk as a partner for their LTE solution
