NetComm, a leading provider of high performance broadband
communications devices, selected Sequans to provide the TDD-LTE
semiconductor technology required for the development of LTE access
devices designed to support the rise in LTE TDD operator trials,
commitments and deployments.
NetComm recently announced that it was selected to provide LTE devices
for a major national LTE network in Australia.
The agreement comes as a growing number of TD-SCDMA and WiMAX networks
evolve towards TD-LTE, offering consumers and businesses significantly
increased peak data rates and throughput; low latency; extended coverage
and improved cell edge data rates.
“We are very pleased to collaborate with NetComm on delivering high
performance 4G wireless devices to consumers,” said Georges Karam,
Sequans CEO. “Our LTE chipsets are designed to provide super high speed
LTE connectivity with very high efficiency.”
“We selected Sequans’ LTE chips because Sequans has a wealth of
experience in TDD-LTE technology and solutions,” said David Stewart,
Managing Director, NetComm. “Sequans has conducted in-depth LTE
interoperability testing with leading LTE equipment suppliers, and we
welcome this partnership.”
NetComm designed and built LTE devices are based on Sequans’ SQN3000
series 3GPP R8 compliant LTE technology that supports up to 100 megabits
per second of throughput.
