Telecom Lead America: Germany based AVM has selected Altair Semiconductor to power its new LTE 4G products.
The new products will support home networking and voice telephony over LTE Wireless Broadband Connectivity.
The new LTE products feature an Altair-based modem that works in up to three LTE Frequency bands: the 800 MHz Digital Dividend band, and the 1800 and 2600 MHz FDD frequency bands,
“We are pleased to partner with Altair Semiconductor, a Company that has consistently provided AVM with excellent LTE modem technology,” said Peter Faxel, EVP of Products and Technology at AVM. “Altair was able to supply us a perfect solution for our Internet Access Devices (IADs) at an early stage, connecting the AVM IMS Voice Stack with today’s LTE-Voice and -Data Networks.”
The modem is based on Altair’s FourGee-3100/6200 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.
“AVM sets the highest standards in terms of product quality and performance and demands first-rate solutions from its partners,” said Eran Eshed co-founder and VP Marketing at Altair Semiconductor. “LTE Mobile Network Operators stand to greatly benefit from supplying customers with the LTE Wireless Broadband Connectivity and Voice Services that the feature-rich FRITZ!Box offers.”
