The Cascading Star Architecture™
WorldGSM™ is based on VNL’s Cascading Star Architecture™, a unique approach to Radio Network Planning, with several important advantages:
- It allows WorldGSM™ to use panel or omni antennas to provide coverage.
- It provides an easy entry into previously uncovered areas.
- It enables low-cost expansion as uptake increases.
All three contribute significantly to the cost, power savings and sustainability of the WorldGSM™ system.
Extending existing GSM networks
While WorldGSM™ can be a complete standalone GSM network, it comes into its own as a solution that extends the reach of existing networks by going where they cannot go.
WorldGSM™ Rural Sites are deployed in any rural location. WorldGSM™ Village Sites are mounted on rooftops within a 5km radius of a Rural Site.
These “stars” are strung along from any existing GSM network node, extending its reach. The string of rural deployments ends with an MSC and a BSC, co-located at the end node of the host network.
It’s fast, it’s simple and it drives capex and opex to new lows:
