Picochip and Wavesat Achieve LTE Interoperability

Picochip and Wavesat completed interoperability testing (IOT) between Picochip's PC960x LTE small cell base station solution and Wavesat's Odyssey 9000 family of UE chipsets. The first Wavesat Odyssey 9000 chipsets offer performance of 100 Mbps downlink and 50 Mbps uplink for user equipment such as USB dongles, data cards, mobile handsets and tablets/MIDs. These were tested with Picochip's PC9608/9 "small cell" basestation development platform developed jointly with Continuous Computing (CCPU), connecting to both network test and commercial EPC gateway products.
