Meaghan’s Minute: LTE Broadband Internet Access

Wireless Design & Development

By Eric Sorensen, Coordinator of Multimedia Development

Today on Meaghan’s Minute, brought to you by API technologies, coming straight from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Altair Semiconductor and WNC have launched a new router designed to offer high-speed internet connectivity over 3.5GHz LTE bands in markets where wired Internet connections such as cable or DSL are not feasible or economical.

The indoor Wi-Fi/LTE router, developed by WNC and powered by Altair’s FourGee-3100/6300 single-mode LTE chipset, is one of the first devices capable of operating in 3.5GHz LTE bands 42 and 43, spectrum allocated for fixed wireless broadband access in developing countries.

According to Eran Eshed “There is a lot of available spectrum in the 3.5GHz band. Following the demise of WiMAX and other proprietary technologies, LTE has become the most viable candidate for deployment in this band. We are proud to have partnered with WNC to develop this market leading 3.5GHz product and look forward to expanding our joint portfolio to other device categories in the future.”

For some more wireless goodness, we’ll see you again tomorrow, right here on Meaghan’s Minute.
