This week is Mobile World Congress 2013 (MWC), and Mindspeed Technologies, a provider of semiconductor solutions for communications applications in wireline and wireless network infrastructure equipment, has a booth set up with many demonstrations for all to see.
One of the demonstrations on display is a small cell with carrier aggregation, connected to two radios at 700MGHZ and 2.6HZ carriers, and to the core network combining them into a single connection.
Both the operator-deployed and commercial small cell products that are being exhibited at Mindspeeds’ booth range from residential femtocells that through enterprise and indoor base stations are cost-effective, and high-power public access metrocells and outdoor picocells that are high-performance.
In addition to the demonstrations noted, Mindspeed has a wide variety of its technologies it is showing, such as Commercial TD-LTE small cell, dual mode HSPA and LTE, High Performance HSPA and Integrated small cell and Wi-Fi small cell. In addition, its LTE-A with carrier aggregation and a 20MHZ LTE small cell demonstration will highlight key features of its new Mindspeed Transcede T3300 product.
Rupert Baines, vice president of Mindspeed, stated, “Small cells have become mainstream for operators, and Mindspeed is the leading supplier of technology for this. MWC is an opportunity to see small cell base stations from our customers, and we will have many of those at our booth. As well as commercial leadership, we will be demonstrating our technology leadership, with the first small cell plus Wi-Fi system and the first small cell with LTE-A.”
At theMindspeed booth there is also data on the T3400 and T4400 Transcede SoC, which are new technologies designed for high-performance cell base stations and with a roadmap to LTE-B/LTE-HI supports LTE-A. Some of the products that are on display includes four diverse small TD-SCDMA femtocells from modernized small cell manufacturers that include a roadmap to TD-LTE, 13 dual-mode and LTE small cells as well as 25exclusive HSOA femtocells and small cells.
The conference started on Monday, and runs through until Thursday, Feb. 28 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain. Click here to keep up with the latest Mobile World Congress news.
