Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in
semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, is
demonstrating the carrier aggregation capabilities of its new 4G LTE-Advanced
modem, the BCM21892, at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.
Carrier aggregation enables service providers to join different spectrum bands
to create the equivalent of a contiguous 20MHz channel capable of delivering
peak LTE speeds of 150Mbps. In addition to the 4G LTE demos, Broadcom is
announcing a range of new mobile technologies and momentum in driving the
adoption of next generation wireless technologies into all product segments.
Visit Broadcom @ Mobile World Congress for more news.
For its live 4G LTE demos, Broadcom is using its recently announced 4G
LTE-Advanced modem, implemented in a 4G LTE smartphone reference platform
built by Broadcom. In the carrier aggregation demo, two channels are
aggregated, with one channel turned on and off during the demo to show the
doubling of peak speed from 75Mbps to 150Mbps. In a separate setup, the same
150Mbps peak speed is achieved using 20MHz of contiguous spectrum. Additional
demos will showcase the power savings of the BCM21892's envelope tracking
technology and the high call quality of its Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services.
In addition, Broadcom will be showing its BCM21892 smartphone platform in
live, over-the-air demonstrations.
Broadcom's multi-mode, multi-band LTE solution is the industry's smallest 4G
LTE-Advanced modem. It combines a full-featured cellular baseband with a
world-band radio in a footprint that is approximately 35 percent smaller than
current industry solutions. An overview of the BCM21892 can be found on
Broadcom's website or in Broadcom's 4G LGE-Advanced modem announcement made on
February 12, 2013.The BCM21892 is now sampling to early access customers with
anticipated production in 2014.
At Mobile World Congress 2013, Broadcom is also unveiling a range of
innovations in mobile and wireless technology to drive continued evolution in
the connected lifestyle.
