First Mobile Hotspot to Demonstrate Gigabit LTE speeds!
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 11, 2017--
Novatel Wireless, Inc. – an Inseego Corp. company (Nasdaq:INSG) and
leading provider of mobile broadband and connected solutions for the
Internet of Things (IoT) – and Keysight Technologies, Inc. today
announced the successful demonstration of 1.2 Gbps downlink throughput
on Novatel Wireless’ next-generation MiFi, an industry-first Cat 18 LTE
mobile hotspot, at Mobile World Congress Americas in San Francisco.
“Novatel Wireless has a proven history of commercializing industry
firsts. From the first 1G cradle modems for early handhelds, to 2G/3G PC
cards with embedded antennas, followed by the invention of MiFi mobile
hotspots, and the first LTE-U capable USB modem, it is in our DNA to
embrace the challenges that come with introducing the latest advanced
technologies and developing products that operate on the latest wireless
standards,” said Stephen Sek, CTO for Novatel Wireless. “As mobile
broadband technologies are advancing in both speed and complexity,
breaking through the true Gigabit barrier is a milestone worth noting.
Today, we are pleased to announce that we have achieved the 1.2 Gbps
milestone in the development of our next-generation MiFi platform.”
“This is an important milestone on our path to 5G and we are excited for
this new platform to launch commercially. We have secured a commitment
with a Tier 1 North American service provider for launch in 2018, and we
are in the process of securing additional commitments from other major
providers around the globe,” noted Steve Linke, VP of Worldwide Sales
for Novatel Wireless.
Using Keysight’s UXM E7515A Wireless Test Sets configured for three
Component Carriers of 20 MHz, 256 QAM and 4x4 MIMO, the demonstration of
1.2 Gbps downlink data throughput at the physical layer shows that the
maximum throughput possible with Cat 18 can be achieved with Novatel
“Enabling partners like Novatel Wireless to address the challenges that
come with developing leading-edge technology so that they can be
successful in their business is what motivates us. Time to market and
device performance are key elements for our customers and for Keysight.
Both in LTE Advanced Pro as well as in 5G, Keysight is showing that
technical leadership combined with technical expertise, enables market
leaders to succeed,” said Kailash Narayanan, Keysight Technologies Vice
President and General Manager, Wireless Device and Operators.
