Tatara

TataraSystems_logoTatara Systems was founded in 2001, and is based in Boston, USA. The company has pioneered the 3G CDMA core network standard for femtocells, designing and implementing its own Femtocell Convergence Server. The company was very active within the 3GPP2 standards body and Femto Forum, making substantial contributions and driving rapid progress for the completion of the 3GPP2 CDMA femtocell standard.

The company's main product was the Femtocell Convergence Server, and they are the only known vendor of a fully standard compliant solution today. It is deployed at Sprint, together with the Airvana and Airwalk 3G CDMA femtocells.

Products have been sold in the past to several large mobile network operators, and the company claims its solution is also applicable to GSM/UMTS network operators.

In 2006, announced a partnership with Airvana to develop a wideranging end-to-end small cell solution for CDMA operators. This evolved into a 3GPP2 standards compliant 3G CDMA femtocell that was commercially deployed under the Airave brand at Sprint in 2010.

The company also announced a partnership with Airwalk - another CDMA femtocell vendor - to develop an enterprise CDMA femtocell solution. This was also deployed commercially by Sprint in 2011.

The company announced a venture capital investment of $7 million in June 2010, led by North Bridge Venture Partners and supported by Highland Capital Partners.

Tatara Systems was acquired by Taqua in July 2011 (read our comment on the takeover), who continue to develop and sell the Femtocell Convergence Server.
