Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Sub10 Systems, a manufacturer of point-to-point millimetre wave radio links, announced their collaboration on a differentiated and future-proof backhaul solution for small cell base stations.
Of all the available backhaul choices for LTE macrocells and small cells, by 2018, sub 6GHz OFDM NLOS technology will become the most popular for “last mile” backhaul. Fiber-based backhaul will be the second most popular choice, where it is available, followed by millimeter wave and the traditional LOS microwave links.
DragonWave Inc., a global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced a product addition to its portfolio with the introduction of the Avenue Link Lite. With a form factor of only 7.5 in square including antenna, the sub-6 GHz point-to-point microwave radio supports both licensed and unlicensed spectrum and is ideally suited for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios where obstructions are found between link endpoints.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announced it has completed an agreement to distribute product from Lime Microsystems, an England-based manufacturer that specializes in field programmable RF transceivers (FPRFs) for the next generation of wireless broadband systems.
Thales has been tasked by the French defence procurement agency (DGA) with extending the full-IP network that supports convergence between French armed forces’ theatre networks to the entire Syracuse military SATCOM ground segment.
Raytheon Co. has released a mobile app for first responders that provides reliable and secure real-time communications, situational awareness and a suite of robust collaboration capabilities for groups of users on smartphones, tablets and mobile data computers. One Force® Mobile Collaboration is a complete end-to-end system.
AR Europe is proud to announce its new exclusive distribution agreement with Eastern Optx, a New Jersey based company that designs and manufactures fibre optical delay systems. This new product line includes radar target simulation systems, radio altimeter test sets and channel replicators.
LTE represents an opportunity for operators to increase revenue by pricing the new service at a premium. However, the successful LTE operators in the USA are not following that strategy: continued traffic growth from additional usage and multiple devices is encouraging users towards more expensive plans, which is resulting in consistently increasing ARPU.
