Mobyland, a Polish mobile network operator has selected Altair Semiconductor to power its LTE-USB modems operating in the 1800 MHz spectrum band. The solution, an LTE-USB modem based on Altair’s FourGee-3100/6200 technology, is manufactured by IP Wireless, and has already conducted interoperability testing and field testing, allowing for immediate deployment on Mobyland’s network.
The LTE USB modem is equipped with two internal antennas and two antenna connections for an external MIMO antenna. The modem presently operates in the 10 MHz band and is software upgradeable to operate in the 20MHz band as well, and allows for download speeds of up to 73mb/s and uploads of 25mb/s.
According to Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair, the company is very proud to be chosen for such a cutting-edge deployment in an important, but as-of-yet untapped LTE band. Altair’s focus and dedication to advancing their products and preparing them for commercial development is now paying off, as products based on IOT-tested chipsets and software are being rolled out by carriers around the world.
