Greenpacket and Sequans Introduce Dual-Mode WiMAX/LTE TDD Device

Greenpacket introduced the industry’s first 4G WiMAX and LTE TDD indoor dual-mode integrated access device (IAD). The customer premises equipment (CPE) is specifically designed to support WiMAX operators who are currently making the transition to LTE networks. The unit is powered by Sequans’ dual mode chip that integrates both WiMAX and LTE in a highly efficient, single die. Packet One Networks (Malaysia) will be one of the very first to deploy the new Greenpacket dual mode CPE in 2013.

The IAD is compliant with the latest LTE Category-4 (3GPP- R9) and WiMAX 802.16e-2009 standards, providing downlink and uplink speeds of up to 150 Mbps and 50 Mbps for LTE TDD and combined speed of 40 Mbps for WiMAX. Additional connectivity interfaces include 802.11n, 1 LAN port and 1 RJ-11 port. http://www.greenpacket.com
