Altair’s FourGee technology powers Yota Devices’ USB dongle for LTE / 4G network

Telecom Lead Russia: Altair Semiconductor’s FourGee technology is powering Yota Devices’ USB dongle soon to be deployed on Yota Russia’s LTE / 4G network.

The new devices, which are designed to support on-the-go and home-based internet connectivity over LTE Wireless Broadband Networks, feature an Altair-based modem that works in two LTE Frequency bands: the 800MHz Digital Dividend and the 2600MHz FDD frequency bands.

Yota Devices has sold 3 million connectivity devices since 2009, including modems and routers and has 6 percent of the global LTE devices market.

“We are excited to help Yota Devices deliver innovative and ultra-fast wireless broadband devices to their fast-growing customer base,” said Eran Eshed, co-founder and VP Marketing of Altair Semiconductor.

The modem is based on Altair’s FourGee-3100/6202 chipset, which supports LTE throughputs of 100Mbps/50Mbps on both FDD and TDD variants, using a single software platform. The versatile chipset also covers any LTE frequency band between 700-2700MHz.
