Mindspeed to Highlight New Customers, New Products and Leadership in Small Cell Market at Mobile World Congress 2013
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the industry leader in
technology for small cell base stations, will be showing over 35
different small cell products from 25 customers and demonstrating the
latest in small cell technology at Mobile
World Congress, Hall 7 - 1E104 in Barcelona, Spain from February 25
to 28th, 2013. These include carrier deployed small cells for both 3G
and LTE (News - Alert) and technology milestones such as the first demonstration of
small cell with LTE-A (carrier aggregation), products for both LTE FDD
and TD-LTE and small-cell plus Wi-Fi integration.
Commercial and operator deployed small cell products that will be on
display at the Mindspeed booth range from cost-effective residential
femtocells, through enterprise and indoor base stations, to
high-performance, high-power public access metrocells and outdoor
Mindspeed is the only small cell SoC supplier with demonstrated support
for all 3GPP air-interfaces: HSPA, TD-SCDMA, LTE FDD and TD-LTE and
commercial small cells for all of these will be on display. These
include 3G only systems, LTE only systems and dual-mode with
simultaneous 3G and LTE.
Demonstrations at the booth will include a range of Mindspeed
20MHz LTE Small Cell: Most small cells to date have been
limited to 10MHz channels. This demonstration features the Mindspeed®
Transcede® T3300 product, running a complete LTE small cell
implementation with 20MHz channels.
LTE-A with carrier aggregation: A proof of concept
demonstration of Release 10 LTE (LTE-A) showing carrier aggregation,
with one T3300 device combining two different radios on two different
Integrated Small Cell and Wi-Fi small cell: Showing how Wi-Fi
and small cell can be combined into one system: not merely
side-by-side but with co-operation and awareness to enable synergies.
Benefits to operators from this could include improved security,
reduced OpEx or beaer-aware services.
High-performance HSPA: Mindspeed has a leading position in both
LTE and dual-mode, many deployments are still 3G. Mindspeed has a
dominant position here with 63%
share according to Infonetics.
This demonstration shows a high-performance small cell SoC that
supports 32 users with advanced HSPA+ capabilities.
Dual-mode HSPA and LTE: Mindspeed is the only company with
field-proven, carrier deployed small cell technology for both 3G and
LTE, with demonstrations of integrated simultaneous dual-mode on a
single SoC device.
Commercial TD-LTE small cell: Emphasizing the maturity and
breadth of offering of Mindspeed's technology portfolio is a
commercial small cell from a customer with live, operator deployed
There will also be information on Mindspeed's newly announced T3400 and
T4400 Transcede SoC, designed for high-performance small cell
basestations, supporting LTE-A with a roadmap to LTE-B/LTE-HI.
"Small cells have become mainstream for operators, and Mindspeed is the
leading supplier of technology for this," said Rupert Baines (News - Alert), vice
president of marketing at Mindspeed. "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."
Products planned for public display include:
25 unique HSPA femtocells and small cells, including those in
commercial service with service providers from around the world
13 LTE and dual-mode small cells, including those from carriers in
Real-world ecosystem participation from Mindspeed collaborators
Four different TD-SCDMA femtocells from innovative small cell
manufacturers, with roadmap to TD-LTE
Picocell (News - Alert)-class products for enterprise, metro and rural markets
Mindspeed is the leader in technology for small cell base stations, with top
market share for HSPA shipments, more announced design engagements
for LTE small cells than any other vendor and is the first SoC supplier
with operator-deployed LTE small cells.
In addition, Mindspeed will showcase solutions for mobile broadband
routers (MBRs), or "fixed-wireless" LTE gateways, powered by its
dual-core, ARM (News - Alert)® Cortex-A9 Comcerto® 2000 processor family. The new class
of high-performance MBR designs can deliver full 20Mhz, 150/50 Mbps and
10MHz 75/50 Mbps LTE data rates with support for Wi-Fi, including
802.11ac, Gigabit Ethernet, carrier-class VoIP and enterprise class
security features. These new wireless gateways enable the deployment of
triple-play broadband services using LTE network access wherever
wireline broadband is either unavailable or impractical.
