Mindspeed Honored With SK Telecom And Contela For 'Best International' Mobile Excellence Award

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced that it won a 2012 Mobile Excellence Award with SK Telecom and Contela, Inc. The 'Best International' award category was created to honor groundbreaking products or services that have proven to be the most progressive outside of the United States. The Mobile Excellence Awards (MEAs) honored industry leaders and rising stars at its annual gala, which took place on October 17, 2012 during a prestigious event in Marina Del Rey, CA at Digital Hollywood.

The 2012 award honored the data-only femtocell service from SK Telecom that was designed to offload mobile data traffic associated with the rapid growth of smartphones, tablets and mobile PCs. Contela produced their Data Femtocell product for SK Telecom using Mindspeed's system-on-chip (SoC) baseband processor.

“SK Telecom and Contela have delivered on the promise of small cell technology by rolling out a service that enhances network capacity and optimizes the user experience with mobile data services,” said Raouf Y. Halim, Mindspeed's chief executive officer. “At a time when all carriers must address the challenge of exponential growth in mobile data traffic, our work with Contela and SK Telecom is particularly important as the first deployment to use a small cell strategy purely for data offload.”

"Together with Contela and Mindspeed, SK Telecom was able to significantly enhance customers' experience in data services through advanced mobile data offloading technology,” said Kang Jong-Ryeol, Head of Network Technology R&D Center of SK Telecom. “SK Telecom will continue to make efforts to innovate people’s lives by developing the most sophisticated network technologies and services.”

Mindspeed is the only small cell SoC company that has demonstrated support for both HSPA and LTE in its small cell SoCs, and is the only one to have shown both frequency-division duplexing (FDD) LTE and time-division LTE (TD-LTE) solutions. Mindspeed was previously honored with SK Telecom and Contela with a 2012 Small Cell Industry Award for 'Best Commercial Deployment.'
