Sequans & Alcatel-Lucent showcase Carrier Aggregation & LTE Broadcast at #MWC14

“These demonstrations will show the commercial readiness of both carrier aggregation and LTE Broadcast in our chip solutions,” said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. “Our eMBMS technology has been thoroughly proven by operators in several countries, and now our carrier aggregation technology will enjoy a similar reception in this, its first public demonstration with Alcatel-Lucent. We continue to work closely with Alcatel-Lucent on refining these advanced LTE capabilities that will soon transform our mobile world in new and exciting ways.”
“We have been working with Sequans for more than a year on eMBMS testing and we have made tremendous progress in making this exciting LTE multicast technology commercial-ready,” said Glen Booth, VP of the LTE Business at Alcatel-Lucent. “By working together, Alcatel-Lucent and Sequans intend to accelerate the adoption of technologies to bring innovative services to consumers and alleviate the impact of mobile data on wireless networks.”

The money will allow research to go beyond concept and theory, with the aim that all partners work together to develop and standardize 5G technology, which the university has been looking into for a number of years already. They will focus on energy and spectrum efficiency as well as speed, and although it's early days, 10Gbps has been banded around as a per-tower target, translating to roughly 200Mbps for each connection...
