When network operators upgrade to LTE they want to take full advantage of their new and existing resources, so to support this objective, Rohde & Schwarz has added MIMO-specific measurements to its R&S ROMES4.65 drive test software. Using this feature, the R&S TSMW network scanner can quickly identify interferers that reduce MIMO performance in LTE networks.
Rohde & Schwarz is taking a completely new approach to measuring radiated spurious emissions on LTE devices, making it considerably easier for users to measure RSE in the presence of LTE carrier power. The solution is the R&S OSP open switch and control platform equipped with the new R&S OSP-B155 option.
Siklu announced that its EtherHaul millimeter-wave wireless backhaul solution performed well in a challenging trial in Mumbai, India, during the recent monsoon season.

NEC Corp. has launched the compact MB4300 all-in-one LTE base station system, which has been designed for a wide range of installation options in areas with limited space, such as rooftops and compact indoor spaces. This series paves the way for more cost effective installation of small cell base stations, helps boost capacity and improves overall performance.
ip.access confirmed plans to build its first integrated LTE and 3G small cell. The new unit, codenamed the E-100, will be the first from the company to be based on the QorIQ Qonverge®platform from US chip maker Freescale.
Ceragon Networks Ltd. has received orders for additional high-capacity microwave systems and services from Tele2 Russia, with the result that the company will provide high-capacity wireless backhaul in 15 of the 37 regions in Russia covered by the telecommunications operator.
With the help of Ericsson, Japan’s eAccess claims to be the first operator in the world to launch a Mixed Mode solution for WCDMA and LTE. Thanks to Ericsson's Mixed Mode solution, eAccess can use the same radio frequency band for both LTE and WCDMA services.
The Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), a project-funded research group operating in conjunction with the Department of Communications Engineering at the University of Oulu, Finland, is employing EB Propsim F8 radio channel emulator and EB MIMO OTA Application to provide wireless testing and research capabilities under the most realistic propagation conditions.
Alcatel-Lucent and Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CNT) announced the deployment of a new 3G mobile broadband network in Ecuador. This will enable CNT to be the first in the country to offer its customers ‘converged’ services that can be accessed from both fixed and mobile devices and the network will also be ‘LTE and lightRadio™-ready’, another first for Ecuador.
LPRS, supplier of short-range radio devices, has been appointed by Shenzhen Arronna Antennas Co. Ltd. as the exclusive distributor in Europe for the company’s comprehensive range of antennas.
