CCS crowned winner at World Communication Awards 2014 for small cell backhaul innovation

Self-organising microwave backhaul system awarded top prize in prestigious ‘Innovation’ category

Cambridge, UK, 4th December 2014 – CCS (Cambridge Communication Systems Limited), creator of the world’s first self-organising small cell microwave backhaul system for mobile networks, today announces that it has taken home another top industry prize – a prestigious World Communication Award 2014. CCS was named winner of the ‘Innovation Award’ at a gala award ceremony held in London last night.

The 16th edition of the World Communication Awards (WCA) recognise innovation and outstanding performance in the global telecoms industry. CCS’ World Communication Award adds to a stellar line-up of industry plaudits bestowed on the company during 2014, including overall wins in the IET Innovation Awards (Communications), Small Cell Forum Industry Awards (Backhaul Design and Technology Innovation Category) and Cambridge News Top Innovations Awards.

CCS is the pioneer of the first self-organising small cell backhaul system that makes outdoor small cells truly viable. CCS’ backhaul nodes connect autonomously to form self-organising, self-healing links that dynamically reconfigure to optimise performance and spectral efficiency as Line Of Sight circumstances or traffic levels change, whilst minimising interference. In October, the company announced the expansion of its first commercial deployment with China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile operator.

Commenting on CCS’ World Communication Award win, CEO and Co-Founder Steve Greaves said: “To win a World Communication Award is a tremendous honour for any company in this industry, and we’re grateful to the WCA judges. This has been a pivotal year for the small cells market, and a phenomenal year for CCS as a business. We’ve enjoyed celebrating the acclaim our solution has achieved during the past twelve months, and we’re looking forward to an even more successful 2015.”
