Second-Generation LTE Platform

LTE is barely on the radar yet for consumers, but the mobile industry is dashing ahead with enhancements, trials, and even early commercial deployments. As part of a series of news releases out of Mobile World Congress, Motorola today announced its second-generation LTE platform with the launch of the WBR 700 Series LTE eNodeB. The WBR 700 Series supports FDD and TD-LTE solutions and has an LTE baseband with up to four times the capacity of the average LTE baseband on the market today. Greater capacity means higher throughput, and ultimately that means a mobile broadband experience akin to today’s fixed-line broadband service.

It’s interesting to note that even though the new WBR 700 Series is labeled as second-gen LTE equipment, it can also properly be called fourth-generation OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) technology. As explained in years past, Motorola is building on existing WiMAX solutions also based on OFDM.

More details on the WBR 700 Series:

  • The platform will support a wide variety of frequencies from 700 MHz to 2.6 GHz
  • As a 1U rack, the WBR 800 Series is one of the smallest and most energy-efficient eNodeBs in the industry
  • Operators using the WBR700 Series will be able to deploy multiple LTE carriers at different frequencies
