Anokiwave's Presence at MWC Barcelona 2019

February 20, 2019

Anokiwave announced its presence at MWC Barcelona 2019. Their 5G ICs will power our customer’s 5G arrays at all three mmWave 5G bands and the Anokiwave Active Antenna Innovator Kits, driven by Anokiwave 5G ICs will be featured at several of our partner booths. We will also make a significant product announcement about our next generation of 5G ICs during the conference. Anokiwave senior staff will be available for private meetings with customers.

At MWC2019, Anokiwave will participate in the industry’s first O-RAN mmWave White-box hardware proof-of-concept demonstration of an open radio access network 5G radio unit (RU), working with other O-RAN alliance members. This demonstration will take place in the Xilinx booth in Hall 6, Stand 6M30.

As part of the MWC2019 program, Anokiwave’s partner and turn-key solution provider, GLOBALFOUNDRIES will host a NEXTech Lab Theater Session entitled “Intelligent Connectivity for a Data Driven Future” where the growth and impact of intelligent connectivity to the semiconductor value chain will be discussed. Alastair Upton, Anokiwave Sr. VP of Business Development will participate in this panel session to be held Monday, February 25, 2019, at 1:30 pm in Hall 8.

Anokiwave will introduce its next generation of 5G ICs during MWC2019. As part of our strategy to enable mmWave 5G systems by commercializing planar active antennas with silicon core ICs, Anokiwave is planning to extend the 5G portfolio by offering full RF signal chain IC families at each mmWave band. The system architecture behind the family will lead us into multiple architectures and all use cases from infrastructure to consumer equipment.

“The latest IC family adds new and enhanced features to make 3GPP compliant cutting-edge performance even easier, and active antennas so powerful that they fit into the palm of your hand,” states Alastair Upton, Anokiwave Senior Vice President of Business Development. “By harnessing the highest levels of integration, three generations of active antenna IC learning and cost structures only available on GLOBALFOUNDRIES 300 mm diameter silicon processes, we’ve enabled total ownership costs for base-stations and small cells resembling Wi-Fi access points.”
