Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
CTIA - The Wireless Association®and Global Certification Forum (GCF) have agreed to a common process for evaluating the over-the-air performance of new wireless devices. The agreement allows GCF to incorporate CTIA’s Test Plan for Wireless Device Over-the-Air Performance into its Performance Measurement process.
Huawei has been selected by Portuguese mobile operator Optimus to provide UMTS/LTE multi-frequency antennas for its LTE commercial network. The commercialization of Huawei's antennas in Portugal extends the current mobile network portfolio and will boost the overall prosperity of the European LTE market.
As the mobile network struggles to cope with the growing level of traffic and pressures on CAPEX, the RF electronics of a typical base station design are subject to great innovation namely in the form of tower mounted amplifiers, remote radio heads, and active antennas.
Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and EMSS - EM Software & Systems-S.A. (Pty) Ltd announced the release of the fourth major version of Antenna Magus. With this major version 4.0 release, Antenna Magus has crossed the 200 antenna mark – a significant number of antenna designs – further entrenching the product as the world’s leading antenna design tool.
ASC Signal has been selected to provide a significant number of Ka-band antennas to one of Europe’s major satellite operators to ensure uptime in distributing Pay-TV channels to Europe’s extensive base of satellite television users. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
The collaboration between CST and Delcross will bring together EMIT's RF system models and predictive engine for quantifying the impact of interference on system performance with the powerful computational electromagnetic solutions of CST STUDIO SUITE. This integration provides a high-fidelity solution for the prediction of cosite interference in complex, RF-dense environments.
