Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI), a provider of advanced wireless solutions, innovative adaptive filtering and world class cryogenic products for commercial and government applications, will be participating with a major wireless original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in a long-term evolution (LTE) field trial with a tier-one US wireless operator for its new 700 MHz network. The trial is scheduled to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2009.

“We believe there is a significant opportunity for our unique filtering technology to address the major interference challenges of the 700 MHz spectrum,” said Jeff Quiram, STI’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This non-exclusive arrangement allows STI to demonstrate the value of our capabilities to our OEM partner. The successful completion of this trial should enable STI to participate in the upcoming 700 MHz network deployments with our SuperLink solution integrated into a state-of-the-art LTE network platform. As a recognized expert in providing high performance front-end receiver solutions that eliminate interference, STI can assist our partner in meeting the demanding requirements of these networks.”
