CommAgility, a Wireless Telecom Group company, announced that its 4G LTE software has been integrated by EUCAST in South Korea's public safety network, a project led by the country's Ministry of the Interior and Safety, due to its proven robustness and reliability. The Korean network will include more than 4,000 fixed base stations with a fully redundant network core and operation's center and is expected to be rolled out during 2020 for nationwide operation in 2021. With its high data capacity, the network will enable video, audio, and high-resolution images to be sent during an emergency.
"CommAgility's software is critical to the reliability and performance of the public safety network," said Jaehyeong Kim, CEO at EUCAST. "We selected CommAgility's LTE solutions due to their high quality and robustness, as well as the company's expert support, and we look forward to developing additional specialized 5G systems with them."
"EUCAST has a strong reputation for building top-grade small cell products, with the performance and features needed for a variety of applications," says Edward Young, CommAgility's vice president and general manager. "We are excited to continue supplying EUCAST with new software that is backed by our extensive experience in 4G for their product portfolio. Our LTE PHY is part of our range of hardware, software, and reference designs for both LTE and 5G."
EUCAST, a Korean wireless broadband equipment developer, has licensed CommAgility's LTE physical layer (PHY) software, which it has used in a range of small cell products. Building on their longstanding relationship, EUCAST and CommAgility are now discussing plans for working together on 5G-based solutions.
CommAgility's LTE PHY is a complete LTE physical layer for small cells on SDR, DSP and ASIC platforms, and is used and proven by Tier 1 equipment vendors. It is based on a modular architecture and flexible interfaces to enable fast porting and easy adaptation, and CommAgility can modify the PHY for customers' specific requirements. The PHY benefits from CommAgility's experience in high performance algorithms for multi-antenna systems, enabling efficient spectrum usage and maximum data throughput.
