Sequans Expands Chip Portfolio from WiMAX to LTE

Sequans Communications, which is a leading WiMAX chipmaker, confirmed that it intends to develop products for both the LTE and WiMAX markets in parallel.

Sequans expects to continue adding resources to its LTE organization this year and will demonstrate its first LTE solutions beginning early 2010, in support of pre-commercial operator trials.

"Our success in WiMAX has enabled us to expand naturally into LTE, and we are ready to meet the needs of LTE equipment manufacturers with outstanding silicon and software solutions, building upon our significant experience with WiMAX operators and OEMs," said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. "Our WiMAX development will continue unabated, and we are looking forward to a very strong 2010 where our new generation 65nm SQN1200 family, the most highly integrated Mobile WiMAX semiconductor solutions in the industry, will gain an even stronger foothold in the market. We see WiMAX deployments ramping up sharply and expect that demand for our differentiated solutions will increase accordingly."
