Qualcomm To Help mobile Operators to Increase Network Capacity Through Unclaimed Frequency Wi-Fi
In order to increase the capacity of mobile networks in a growing volume of data transmitted Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, is expanding the use of LTE in the unlicensed frequency spectrum (LTE-U). The company Qualcomm Technologies has developed a special addition to the technology LTE-U, which allows the use of unlicensed frequency spectrum Wi-Fi to improve the quality of mobile communications in those circumstances where it is critically needed. For example, in the subway, at football matches and other mass sporting events. That is where there is a large concentration of people in a small area.
Matt Coffin, executive vice president and chief engineer of Qualcomm Technologies, states the following:
Because the Internet is entering a new phase of growth, in which devices are more and more, as well as the amount of data exchanged between them, there is a need to address the issue of increasing the volume of Internet traffic in a thousand times. To do this, we need to expand the range of frequencies, more efficient use of the available frequency spectrum, as well as the use of smaller cells.
Transmitters operating on technology LTE Unlicensed, the size will be comparable to Wi-Fi-routers, which will place them in those places where it is most needed. On the receiving side will be the new chips family FSM99xx, and that will allow to take advantage of this connection.
Neville Meydzhers, vice president of Qualcomm, finally assured:
Chips family FSM99xx suitable for use in small and medium distances, which should be particularly relevant in relation to small and medium-sized businesses. Full implementation of technology LTE-U on the ground will help mobile operators to increase network capacity in certain cases.
Demonstration of new solutions LTE-U from Qualcomm will take place within MWC 2015 in Barcelona from 2 to 5 March.
