Telecom Lead America: Packet One Networks (Malaysia),
Southeast Asia’s first 4G operator, will deploy the new Greenpacket dual mode
CPE in 2013.
Sequans Communications and Greenpacket have recently
launched 4G WiMAX and LTE TDD indoor dual-mode integrated access device (IAD)
DA 235 is designed to support WiMAX operators who are
making the transition to LTE networks. WiMAX players can deliver uninterrupted
service to their users who can be connected to either WiMAX or LTE networks.
P1 is very pleased to make this uniquely powerful device
available to our customers. It allows us to realize our dual-mode WiMAX and LTE
co-existence and LTE migration strategies very cost-effectively with the best
possible seamless experience for our customers. Most importantly, it enables P1
to roll out LTE at the right time towards the path of the next generation of 4G
technology,” said Michael Lai, P1 CEO.
This complete device solution is powered by Sequans’ dual
mode semiconductor solution that integrates both WiMAX and LTE in a single die.
Its radio performance is supported by adaptive MIMO
A&B, switched transmit diversity (STD), maximal ratio combining (MRC) and
integrated high-gain 5dBi omni antenna. These features work in unison to
deliver uncompromised coverage, consistency and predictable service experience.
Moreover, it is compliant with the latest LTE Category-4
(3GPP- R9) and WiMAX 802.16e-2009 standards, providing downlink and uplink
speeds of up to 150 Mbps and 50 Mbps for LTE TDD and combined speed of 40 Mbps
Additional connectivity interfaces of Wi-Fi 802.11n, 1
LAN port and 1 RJ-11 port makes the DA-235 a perfect device to deliver quad
play services allowing operators to live up to expectations of their 4G
promise. The DA-235 is the first of Greenpacket’s upcoming portfolio lineup of
dual-mode LTE devices that will include a pocket modem, USB, and indoor and
outdoor units that operate on standard WiMAX bands, 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5 GHz, and
four main LTE TDD bands, 38, 40, 41 and 43.
P1 is a leader in establishing a dual-4G network and is
successfully demonstrating its WiMAX to LTE migration strategy by using dual-4G
devices, eliminating the need to replace devices as they build their LTE
network and significantly reducing inventory risk,” said Georges Karam, Sequans
We are excited to deliver this groundbreaking product.
Greenpacket has yet again demonstrated its technology leadership in solving the
biggest concerns faced by WiMAX operators globally in transitioning to LTE”
said James Wang, senior vice president of Innovation, Strategies and
Development at Greenpacket.
