Powerwave Technologies’ LTE Picocell Wins Best Of 4G Awards For Best New Network Infrastructure Solution

Stocks in this article: PWAV

Powerwave Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV), a global supplier of advanced solutions for wireless communications networks, announced today its LTE Picocell was awarded the Best of 4G Awards for the new network infrastructure solution category. Presented at 4G World 2011 Conference and Expo, the Best of 4G Awards recognizes leaders in the development and deployment of 4G technologies.

A key component of Powerwave’s Inside Out Solutions™ methodology, the LTE Picocell injects mobile broadband coverage and capacity, both indoors and outdoors, via its integrated LTE and WiFi router with MIMO antennas. The compact base station supports all 4G-frequency bands and helps carriers build more flexible networks, extending coverage and capacity into densely populated areas with high data usage or remote areas with weak signals. It empowers operators to quickly and cost-effectively roll out new LTE wireless networks, while leveraging their existing wireless network infrastructure to yield higher modulation, faster user speeds and greater overall network capacity. Powerwave’s powerful, all-in-one LTE Picocell delivers up to 15 times greater overall system capacity to provide ubiquitous coverage and a multi-megabyte user experience, without the cost and complexity of adding standard macro cells. Key differentiating features include:

  • Support for up to 1,000 registered users, with up to 100 simultaneous users in active data transfer mode
  • Increased aggregate data throughput of 100+ Mbps and user-plane latency of less than five milliseconds
  • Automated, Self Optimized Network (SON)-based provisioning
  • Highly optimized, integrated RF, filters and antennas
  • Five times less UL transmit power for connected devices, which extends battery life and reduces cost for both wireless operators and end users

“We are thrilled to be recognized by 4G World as a Best of 4G Award recipient for our LTE Picocell design innovation. As carriers increasingly deploy 4G technologies, small cells technology provides a cost effective and easier deployment alternative to macro cell splitting to address the coverage gaps in networks,” said Ronald Buschur, President and CEO at Powerwave. “The LTE Picocell provides vast performance and capacity improvements in a small package. By deploying Powerwave’s solution, operators gain significant time-to-market advantages and are able to reduce capital and operating expenses, while improving the overall coverage, signal quality and capacity of their networks.”
