Ubidyne Project with EASY-C Creates Capacity Breakthrough on LTE-Advanced
The project highlighted a new approach to boosting the capacity of next generation mobile networks, known as Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP), a candidate technology for socalled LTE-Advanced, which is the next step after the recently finalized standard Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Release 8. Workshop attendees viewed a live field demonstration of the CoMP concept, namely the world's first joint coherent transmission from three base stations to three mobile terminals. This innovation was developed to reduce the interference between adjacent cells, one of the main limitations of today's mobile networks, especially in urban areas.
According to Prof. Dr. Dr. Holger Boche, scientific director of the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute in Berlin: "These CoMP systems promise much higher data rates in mobile networks and, more importantly, better availability of mobile broadband connectivity regardless of the user's location."
Ubidyne is a proud contributor to innovation in antenna embedded digital radio concepts and selforganizing networks. We welcome the success of the EASY-C project and look forward to working with the group to dramatically reduce the costperbit and enhance the capacity of next generation mobile networks in cooperation with the leading network infrastructure OEMs.
