During this past week in the wireless backhaul community, we have seen support systems develop, DFN devices shrink smaller, wireless signals improve, and even some red carpet appearances at Sundance.
Franklin Wireless has chosen Altair Semiconductor’s FourGee LTE (News - Alert) chipset to support its line of single mode LTE-enabled products for the U.S. and other worldwide markets. According to the president of Franklin Wireless, he chose Altair’s LTE to support its new line because it is the most favorable solution available, and it inexpensively provides the high performance a company needs .
Everything in technology is being built smaller and integrating to condense software into a single place. To go along with that trend, Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Limited (AOSL) has created a series of ultra- tiny DFN device packages measuring 1.0mm x 0.6mm and 1.6mm x 1.6mm. The devices will be available in 12 weeks, and the prices will range from $0.08 to $0.25 per unit depending on the device.
With the increasing dependence on mobile devices, carrier companies have been trying to create stronger signals for users. According to Wilson Electronics, its new signal booster, the Sleek 4G, is capable of improving the signals of AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon (News - Alert) (customers, as well as legacy U.S. carriers. This will help enhance cell phone reception in cars, trucks boats and bring down lost connections and speed data rates (which are becoming pretty pricey).
For some red carpet updates, the Sundance organizers have partnered with Ruckus Wireless for a third year in a row to create a high-performance public Wi-Fi network enabled with the latest smart Wi-Fi technology from Ruckus Wireless. This will be a free service for attendees at the Festival, who will be able to upload pictures or Tweet live, and we know how much celebrities love their social media.
Ah, the Wireless Community loves to see how technology never stops improving and finding inexpensive solutions.
Stay tuned for next week’s update in wireless backhaul.
