KT and ArrayComm Announce Collaboration on Enhanced WiBro

ArrayComm is working with KT to its new mobile broadband WiBro network in the 2.3 GHz band by integrating multi-antenna signal processing technologies. Specifically, ArrayComm multi-antenna signal processing software (A-MAST) is being incorporated in WiBro and WiMAX client devices and base stations by multiple manufacturers to reduce costs and improve performance.

ArrayComm and KT teams will conduct several joint efforts, including:

  • Modeling the capital and operating financial benefits from application of MAS in WiBro;

  • Incorporating MAS algorithms into KT's network planning in order to understand the coverage, client data rate, and capacity benefits that MAS can bring to WiBro services;

  • Conducting field trials in Q4 2006 of MAS-enabled products to validate performance characterization and refine product requirements; and

  • Making continuing contributions to the industry's standards bodies to further enhance WiBro's leverage of MAS technology.
