Sequans Communications announced that Cambium Networks, provider of wireless networking solutions, has adopted Sequans’ LTE-Advanced chipset platform, Cassiopeia, for two Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) designs for global markets.
The two new Cambium Networks CPEs are high-performance integrated access devices with which Cambium Networks aims to meet the integrated data, voice, and internet access needs of its residential, business, and enterprise customers.
The LTE-Advanced chip inside the new Cambium Networks CPE devices is Sequans’ Cassiopeia LTE-Advanced chip platform, a member of Sequans’ StreamrichLTE line of products for broadband high-performance devices. Cassiopeia is compliant with 3GPP Release 10 specifications and supports highly flexible dual-carrier aggregation that allows the combination of any two carriers of any size up to 20 MHz each, contiguous or non-contiguous, inter-band or intra-band.
Cassiopeia also supports other Release 10 enhancements such as new MIMO schemes, enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) schemes for heterogeneous networks (HetNets), and improvements to eMBMS (evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service) or LTE broadcast. Cassiopeia features Sequans’ advanced receiver technology for improved performance.
“Cambium Networks delivers the latest in LTE technology and high-performance integrated access devices with capabilities such as advanced MIMO operation, carrier aggregation, and very high throughput,” said Hugues Waldburger, VP of Sequans’ broadband business unit. “Cambium Networks is dedicated to customer satisfaction and we are pleased to collaborate with them to deliver it.”
“We chose Sequans because they are a clear leader in LTE technology for CPE devices and because they have extensive global experience in bringing devices of this type to market,” said Matt Mangriotis, director of product management, Cambium Networks. “Sequans’ LTE-Advanced technology has enabled us to bring to market cost-effective purpose-built fixed LTE solutions for private networks, expanding our wireless fabric portfolio of advanced wireless networking solutions.”
