Sagem Wireless and ST-Ericsson Partner on LTE

ST-Ericsson and Sagem Wireless are collaborating on the development of multimode LTE/HSPA+ reference designs, devices and modules. Specifically, the companies are working on a multimode platform, which can connect to LTE, HSPA+, 3G and GSM networks, to develop a mobile broadband modem to be launched before the end of 2010.

Supporting downlink speeds of up to 100 Mbps via LTE and 21 Mbps via HSPA+, Sagem Wireless' dongle modems will enable Internet Gateways to offer ultra high speed wireless access.

Sagem Wireless also plans to use the multimode platform to produce versatile modules that can bring high-speed mobile connectivity to laptops, netbooks, tablet computers, machine-to-machine (M2M) applications and other devices.
