We solve interference problems in mobile networks
ISCO solutions improve mobile network performance by automatically removing many types of interference.
Our software applications condition the RF link between the base station and the subscriber device to cancel interference and improve signal quality. With tens of thousands of deployments under our belt, our products and solutions are proven to improve throughput, increase network accessibility and deliver more capacity.
ISCO’s patented algorithms apply artificial intelligence to automatically identify interference, detect the type of interference (PIM, narrowband, wideband) and use digital signal processing techniques to cancel interference and noise.
PIM caused by Physical, Environmental and Spectrum Conditions
Signals from multiple transmitters can interact and create Passive Intermodulation (PIM) that degrades the uplink signal, coverage and overall network performance. The PIM problem is growing as networks evolve with more frequency bands being deployed. Our solution cancels PIM, regardless of its source.
Narrowband and Wideband Interference
Sources of interference may originate from high-powered TV towers and radar installations, or from within the mobile network itself such as adjacent/co-channel interference. Our solution automatic detects and cancels many types and sources of interference.
Low Signal Quality
Even when a subscriber's received signal strength is high, signal quality can be poor due to elevated levels of RF noise and interference. This may be due to high traffic volume, a large scale event, or a high density of cell towers. Our solution continuously adapts to the dynamic RF environment to improve signal quality (SINR).
Frequency-specific interference cancellation
In some situations, the source of interference is relatively narrow, frequency-specific, and static. Our VERDIUM line of RF passive components can be deployed at the cell site to provide highly effective interference cancellation.
New and Noteworthy
ISCO is part of the O-RAN Alliance, a worldwide community of mobile network operators, vendors, and research/academic institutions. The Alliance has a mission to re-shape the RAN industry towards more intelligent, open, virtualized, and fully interoperable mobile networks, accomplished with a focus on specifications, software development and testing/integration.
