Harris Communications, the nation’s leader in the creation, design and installation of enhanced wireless networks, cell phone repeaters,bi directional amplifier and bi directional antenna technology, announces the launch of their latest line of products that comply with the new changes that have been implemented by the FCC with new rules for cell phone boosters, giving booster makers an absolute advantage after years of debate over the issue. The FCC has also managed to get the nation's wireless carriers to all agree to the new changes in the rules.
In a major technology development for the mobile industry, Ooredoo has collaborated with CommScope to develop a new approach to building wireless networks, which will improve installation quality and on-going network performance and reduce deployment times, in an alliance that could have major benefits for operators around the world.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MA2700A InterferenceHunter handheld direction finding system that enhances interference mapping and simplifies locating interference sources in wireless networks. Designed for use with Anritsu’s BTS Master™, Cell Master™, Site Master™ and Spectrum Master™ handheld analyzers, the MA2700A InterferenceHunter can be used by field engineers and technicians during deployment, installation, and maintenance of wireless networks. It is ideally suited for use in spectrum clearing and interference mitigation.
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.
ZTE Corp., a global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, has selected the KeyStone multicore System-on-Chips (SoCs) from Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) for its small cell base station products. TI's KeyStone SoCs are programmable multicore processors which enable ZTE to develop wireless base stations capable of concurrently supporting multiple 3G and 4G air interface standards.
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.
TI announced two new software packages for its KeyStone-based multicore system-on-chips (SoCs): a new production ready small cell Physical (PHY) software package and a transport software package for wireless and other network-oriented applications.
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.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
