Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in test and measurement, has expanded its portfolio of solutions focused on the three key aspects that impact mobile network operators’ customer satisfaction: the devices subscribers use, the networks they use them on and the services and applications they use.
CommScope has stripped the complexity out of integrating a distributed antenna system (DAS) into a macro wireless network by upgrading its ION® platform into a simple to use, plug-and-play solution. The new ION-U features integrated guidance and intelligence, enabling wireless network operators to design, plan, deploy and optimize a DAS more quickly and efficiently and at a lower total cost of ownership.
Mobile Experts has released a new Small Cell Market Forecast, predicting more than 5 million metrocells shipped in 2017.
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.
Informa Telecoms & Media issued its latest quarterly small-cell market status report for the Small Cell Forum, which highlights that public access small cells are gaining clear market traction and will dominate small cell revenues for the foreseeable future.
Azimuth Systems Inc., a provider of automated, real-world mobile performance test solutions, introduced new Device Performance Test Plans. Designed for all phases of device development, including interoperability testing, and pre and post launch testing, Azimuth test plans offer a proven method for operators and OEMs to maximize the ROI from test tools.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that the Aeroflex E500 LTE Capacity Test System is the industry's first capacity tester to successfully hand over data services between TDD and FDD networks.
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.
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, announced that it has introduced a new addition to the CompactLine® series of microwave antennas with the release of the 6 GHz Category A SB6-W60B. Featuring a wind-tunnel tested design suited for both tight urban locations and rugged outposts, the SB6-W60B offers a superior radiation pattern for consistent performance with less interference.
PCTEL Inc., a leader in simplifying wireless and site solutions for private and public networks, announced at the LTE North America Conference, the release of new LTE MIMO, LTE Layer 3, and Blind Scan features for its SeeGull MX scanning receiver. These features, which are fully supported by PCTEL's SeeHawk® Drive Test Suite, will help operators maximize spectral efficiency on 4G LTE networks while simplifying the testing of all network technologies. Wireless networks are evolving in order to meet growing demand for high-speed data.
