Solutions

Collision Communications provides sophisticated solutions for achieving a new level of interference suppression and spectral efficiency not achievable by other industry state-of-the-art receivers. These solutions, paired with Collision’s ability to enable downlink Distributed-MIMO, provide opportunities to dramatically improve network performance for LTE and 5G.

Interference Environment
Though spacing of Macro Cells can be large, they still realize significant degradation of performance as a result of intercell interference from adjacent cells, and interference from small cells in HetNet environments.  Because of their size and UE capacity, the effect of this degraded performance impacts most subscribers.
Opportunity
By being able to intelligently suppress interference in Macro Cells, the experiences of large numbers of subscribers are all impacted at once, with particular improvements being realized by the worst-performing subscribers at the 'edge-of-cell'.  Though Macro cell interference is typically not crippling, its effects are real, and not addressing them is a missed opportunity.
Our Solution
Collision Communication’s interference suppression solution for Macro Cells dramatically and inexpensively improves network performance, providing particular performance improvement to edge-of-cell users. Integrated as a PHY-layer software solution that resides in the baseband processor, Collision’s solution requires no new hardware and can be applied to already-deployed networks.
Benefits
Collision's solutions can improve Macro Cell spectral efficiently by over 40%, with the ability to realize gains upwards of 200% for edge-of-cell users.  But the real benefit is that these improvements mean that cells have greater capacity and flexibility, edge-of-cell issues can be resolved, and users have better QoE, all funneling into the improvement of the network's bottom line.
Interference Environment
As cells densify, the interference densifies as well, becoming much more complex and harder to avoid.  Intercell interference is more significant due to the proximity and density of adjacent cells as well as the difficulty in controlling RF propagation.  The heterogeneous environments that small cell networks are often deployed in and the interference of co-existing macro cells or other deployments further complicate the challenge of smooth small cell operation.
Opportunity
Collision’s Small Cell interference suppression solution enables a robust small cell network that can handle and perform to its maximum even under complex and dense interference environments. Implemented as a software solution that resides on the baseband processor of a small cell base station, Collision Communications’ small cell solution represents a cost effective and easily integrated solution that addresses many of the challenges of small cells.

Benefits
Enabling Small Cells to be interference-robust allows Small Cell networks to operate effectively, smoothly and without degraded performance, while easing planning and deployment challenges.  This translates to reduction of costs, minimization of post-deployment fixes, all while providing a significantly improved experience for the end-customer.
Interference Environment
Handled incorrectly, a densely deployed C-RAN is an interference disaster, causing significantly degraded performance. Handled correctly, interference boundaries disappear and interference becomes a useful signal.
Opportunity
C-RAN enables the ability to leverage reception of signals at multiple sites -- jointly-processing received signals from numerous distributed antennas provides the opportunity to schedule numerous purposely interfering signals, yielding unprecedented spectral efficiency.  For many use-cases, this is a game-changer, so long as your signal processing can handle it.
Our Solution
Collision Communication’s C-RAN solution is a PHY layer approach to jointly receiving and processing signals to provide phenomenal network performance. Capable of jointly processing signals from 28 antennas, Collision’s solution requires no additional hardware than what would already be used for an equivalent deployment of Macro sites. Collision’s solution is applicable for indoor and outdoor and small or large cell networks.
Benefits
The result of Collision's C-RAN solution is tremendous performance gain over existing state-of-the-art receiver technology, ability for increased clustering, and improved efficiencies.  The performance gains are more than double that of state-of-the-art C-RAN receiver technology, and over 6x that over more traditional network architectures.  These benefits provide for a much stronger C-RAN value proposition and ultimately yield better performing high-capacity networks at lower costs.
