Movandi, a leader in 5G millimeter-wave (mmWave) RF technologies and software, today announced that it has plans to collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to expand the adoption of 5G mmWave deployment for indoor and outdoor scenarios.
Both the firms are strong proponents of 5G mmWave, and the combination of mmWave small cells powered by Qualcomm® FSM 5G RAN Platforms and Movandi-powered 5G smart repeaters will entail expanded 5G mmWave adoption and increased flexibility in operator deployments.
According to Movandi’s claims, this combination of small cells based on Qualcomm FSM 5G RAN Platforms and Movandi-powered 5G BeamXR smart repeaters is positioned to offer mobile operators cost-effective and fast deployment of mmWave at scale and help unlock the full potential of 5G.
“Our goal is to innovate and empower our partners to solve the toughest 5G deployment challenges,” said Maryam Rofougaran, CEO and founder at Movandi. “With our industry-leading BeamXR semiconductor and system technology, we are committed to delivering the best and most comprehensive set of capabilities to power indoor and outdoor 5G mmWave networks. We look forward to working with Qualcomm Technologies to help the entire 5G ecosystem unlock the promise of high-speed mmWave connectivity.”
Small cells have been at the heart of the global 5G proliferation and Qualcomm Technologies is front and center with its Qualcomm FSM 5G RAN Platforms featuring a flexible and open architecture and industry-leading power efficiency for enterprise-grade.
“This collaboration reflects the next step in both companies’ shared commitment to accelerate 5G mmWave deployments,” said Alex Katouzian, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile, Compute and Infrastructure, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Qualcomm Technologies’ core 5G strategy focuses on delivering the most advanced technology and purpose-built solutions. Our work with Movandi will focus on expanding the adoption of 5G mmWave to improve performance and user experience.”
As claimed by the firm, its BeamXR smart repeater technology helps to close the gap in 5G mmWave deployments by amplifying coverage in public spaces and inside buildings and by penetrating physical barriers in dense urban environments. BeamXR technology combines a fully integrated RF front-end and system-level design to deliver a complete solution with long-range, low power features and unlimited mesh configurations that address mmWave propagation, blocking, and latency challenges.
Movandi BeamXR technology is the industry’s first smart repeater solution engineered to speed up 5G mmWave deployment, extend the range and enhance coverage, penetrate physical barriers in indoor, outdoor, and mobile environments, and accelerate large-scale 5G commercialization.
