Trends and Challenges: Designing a 4G Multi-mode Wireless Baseband for Infrastructure Applications - From Femtocells to Macrocells
With the rapidly growing demand for increased data rates, operators are forced to quickly upgrade their networks by adapting to 3.5G and 4G standards (HSPA+, LTE and WiMAX).
Traditionally, operators built their wireless networks around conventional base station architectures. With the introduction of Femto-cells, operators will be able to build a heterogeneous network hierarchically using: Femto, Pico, Micro and Macro cells.
This evolving base station topology forces substantial challenges upon equipment manufactures to offer wireless broadband devices, with high sensitivity to cost. The OEMs are looking for new ways to significantly lower their development costs, in order to achieve a lower MSRP and meet the operators budget.
This webinar will offer a fresh approach for designing advanced 4G solutions targeting the various network equipment devices.
Topics to be covered:
- How to meet the extreme processing requirements of 4G base station applications
- How to design a scalable solution applicable to Femto, Pico, Micro and Macro cells
- How to design a flexible solution enabling multi-mode baseband
- How to enable a dramatic cost reduction compared with today’s wireless infrastructure systems
- How to simplify software development and leverage upon legacy software investment
Who should attend:
The session should be attended by wireless baseband chip architects and designers, system engineers and baseband algorithm and software engineers planning to implement 4G baseband solutions.
