Introducing sysmoBTS 1002OD (data sheet)

sysmoBTS 1002OD

The sysmoBTS is a low-power, small form factor IP-backhaul GSM BTS. It offers supreme cost efficiency and is suitable for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Rural cellular networks in lowest-ARPU regions

  • GSM related research and development laboratories

  • Production testing of GSM/GPRS terminal equipment

  • Rapidly deployable GSM networks

  • Private GSM networks (PBX style use)

  • In-building coverage/capacity extension

  • Remote area GSM deployments, utilizing any IP-based satellite back-haul service

The IP65 rated sysmoBTS 1002OD is intended to be mounted directly to the antenna pole in close proximity of the antenna.

Benefit from sysmocom's world-class experience in all areas of cellular networks from RAN to core network, permitting flexible integration of other network elements like BSC into the BTS itself.

As the only BTS world-wide, sysmoBTS permits you to run a completely autonomous small GSM network from within the BTS. No external BSC/MSC/HLR/VLR required!
