Sequans’ LTE Technology Powering Consumer Devices For SKY Brasil’s TD-LTE Network In Brazil

Stocks in this article: SQNS

4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) is providing the LTE semiconductor solution for customer devices for SKY Brasil’s TD-LTE network that launched December 13 in Brasilia. SKY Brasil’s network is the first LTE network in Brazil and Brasilia is the first city to receive service in what will become a nationwide broadband network. SKY Brasil, a subsidiary of DirecTV, was founded in 1996 as a direct broadcast satellite service provider and last year won a license to provide LTE service in Brazil in the 2.5 GHz band. Sequans has long experience in TD-LTE with its technology operating in TD-LTE trial networks since May of 2010.

“SKY’s mission to build a nationwide LTE network is truly groundbreaking,” said Georges Karam, Sequans’ CEO. “It will benefit Brazilians tremendously, bringing advanced high speed connectivity to millions, and we are honored to contribute our technology to such an important project.”

“Sequans has a wealth of experience in TD-LTE technology and one of the most mature TD-LTE solutions available today,” said Isidoro Ferret, broadband director, SKY Brasil. “Sequans’ TD-LTE technology has been proven interoperable with all the leading LTE equipment suppliers and its robustness clearly established. We are pleased to have Sequans’ technology in our network.”

The consumer device SKY Brasil is offering its customers is an indoor desktop unit that supports LTE, Ethernet and Wi-Fi. It is based on Sequans’ SQN3010 TD-LTE chip that is 3GPP R8 compliant, capable of delivering up to 100 megabits per second of throughput.
