Quortus is a privately owned company founded in 2009 and based in London UK. The company develop and sell software products which can be embedded by system integrators as part of their Small Cell deployments, including complete core network and enterprise controllers.
CEO and Founder Andy Odgers previously founded and managed Zynetix, which developed a standalone GSM Core Network solution for use in situations such as cruise ships, small/remote islands and related applications. Globe Wireless acquired Zynetix in 2010.
Quortus has developed 2G, 3G and LTE core network functionality in product form. It also has extensive experience with the Iu-h interface.
The company was an early member of the Femto Forum, and continues to play a strong part in developing and managing production of its documents.
Quortus core network software is SIP based, with support for 2G, 3G and LTE radio access as well as landlines. There is a high degree of flexibility and interoperability, allowing incoming and outgoing traffic to bridge wireless and wireline technologies. This makes it ideal for use at the edge of the network, where it can locally control and optimise service delivery, such as in the Enterprise, remote islands and related situations.
QCX Enterprise Concentrator and QCX Enterprise Gateway provide the functionality defined by the Small Cell Forum in their Release 2 Enterprise Architecture. Either component can be deployed onsite or in the Cloud.
Ruris Controller is targetted at rural Small Cell deployments, minimising the use of precious satellite backhaul capacity and offloading local traffic to landline and/or wired internet.
Salvum in-field controller provides a micro-network supporting voice, IP data and SMS aimed at private tactical deployments, such as by First Responders and other government agencies.
Elit controller is designed for use in test and demonstration labs, where a low capacity but fully functional mobile core network is required.
