Altair Semiconductor, InformInvestGroup join forces to deliver LTE solutions in Russia

Telecom Lead Russia: Altair Semiconductor and
InformInvestGroup, a Russian scientific and industrial holding, announced the
availability of user devices for the Russian market based on Altair’s FDD and
TD-LTE chipset.


Both companies conducted field trials with carriers in
Russia and achieved full interoperability and demonstrating high performance
and stability.


InformInvestGroup works in various verticals that include
research and development, system integration, high-tech products manufacturing,
complex telecommunication solutions & turnkey construction.


At the moment, InformInvestGroup incorporates more than
20 companies. The IIG team includes more than 1,500 employees.


The excellent trial results not only prove that Altair`s
chipset is suitable and ready for commercial deployment of FDD and TD-LTE
systems in Russia, but also reassures telecom operators that their large
investment in the spectrum can be monetized effectively,” said Igor Marchenko,
vice president at InformInvestGroup.


Altair’s FourGee LTE chipset is one of the few
commercially sold solutions supporting both FDD and TD-LTE. The chipset
supports all 3GPP Release 9 bands, and is deployed for commercial use and in
trials around the world, including the US, Brazil, Germany, Poland, China,
India and Japan.


We look forward to working together with
InformInvestGroup and with Russian Mobile Network Operators towards rolling out
the first commercial products later this year. We are rapidly expanding the
global footprint of our solution and believe that Russia will be a significant
market for Altair in the coming years,” said Eran Eshed, co-founder and vice
president of marketing at Altair Semiconductor.
