China Mobile Research Institute and Mindspeed Sign MOU for Technical Collaboration for Nanocell Joint Research
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. & BEIJING--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the leader in
semiconductor solutions for small cell base stations, and China
Mobile Research Institute, the research institution of China's
largest mobile operator, today announced that the two companies have
signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") to collaborate on multiple
initiatives related to Nanocell research in China. Nanocell is a newly
defined radio access equipment category that integrates cellular small
cell and carrier grade WLAN access points. This is an important
milestone for the continued rapid build-out of China Mobile's
heterogeneous network (HetNet) and Mindspeed's small cell base station
platform based on its Picochip TD-SCDMA and Transcede® LTE system on a
chip (SoC) solutions. Mindspeed was selected to participate in this
pioneering program based on its current leadership in small cells and
its future product roadmap.
To accelerate the adoption and deployment of the small cell network in
China, Mindspeed will collaborate with China Mobile Research Institute
(CMRI) in Beijing to accelerate the field trial of TD-LTE small cell
systems across the China Mobile Communications Corporation's (CMCC's)
network in China. Further, the company will work closely on such key
research issues as SON technologies, synchronization methods and network
topology. With more mobile subscribers in China than any other country
in the world, the development of a small cell network is critical to
meet the growing data and traffic demands on the network.
"We are very excited to sign this agreement with China Mobile, one of
the world's leading carriers," commented Raouf Y.
Halim, Mindspeed's chief executive officer. "It highlights Mindspeed's
leading SoC platform and the broad spectrum of our product capabilities."
"Mindspeed has demonstrated itself as a leader in TD-SCDMA and small
cells and we look forward to working in China as we prepare for the next
wave of TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE rollouts on China Mobile's network," said
Naser Adas, vice president and general manager, wireless at Mindspeed.
"Transcede's leadership position in terms of low power consumption
combined with high performance and support for China's TDD-LTE standard
will allow China Mobile operators to deploy this key new technology
earlier and more profitably than was previously possible."
Mindspeed is the only small cell SoC company that has demonstrated
dual-mode support for both HSPA and LTE in its small cell SoCs, and the
only one to have shown both frequency-division duplexing (FDD) LTE and
time-division LTE (TD-LTE) solutions.
