Vanu, Inc. and Mid-Tex Cellular today announced the successful trial deployment of the world's first all-software GSM basestation system in a commercial cellular network. The two companies have successfully integrated Vanu Software Radio technology into Mid-Tex Cellular's 8,000 square mile network. The network's BTS and BSC are each a Vanu Software Radio application running on HP ProLiant servers. In addition, an ADC Digivance system and TELOS Sonata SE softswitch have been installed to complete the first end-to-end GSM "soft" network. Software-defined radio systems provide unprecedented flexibility for carriers, including upgrading to new 3G technologies with a relatively simple software upgrade.
