LTE modem network is claimed as World's first in Poland
November 22, 2010 // Phil Ling
The fourth generation (4G) network is said to be considerably faster than the other networks being operated in Poland, and has a significantly increased user capacity which can be handled by one sector of a base station. The company behind it, Mobyland, claims the majority of leading manufacturers of mobile equipment will not present their LTE products until 2011.
The network technology required an advanced consumer device (a modem) to be implemented to ensure the benefits of the LTE 1800MHz network, developed by IPWireless, which was described as the only company on the market of modem suppliers which undertook to create a terminal to meet the business objectives and tight schedule.
The modem is equipped with two internal antennas and two antenna connections for an external MIMO antenna. Today the modem works in the 10MHz band and may be later adjusted to work in the 20MHz band after a remote software update. The data transfer speed allows a data download of up to 73Mb/s and data upload of up to 25Mb/s.
The entire software required to start and use the device is stored in the modem's internal memory. The terminal may be used with computers with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000 and Mac OS systems.
The modem's construction is based on the newest 3100 and 6200 FourGee chipsets developed by Altair-Semiconductors. The LTE 1800MHz project assumes that at the end of 2010 the number of active stations will reach 700 units and the LTE network will cover over seven million users. The network is planned to be continuously built out to cover most of Poland's population.
Mobyland's objective is to develop a wireless telecommunications network based on the most modern fourth generation technologies (LTE) which will replace existing solutions.All news
