    Cassiopeia,LTE-advanced with 40 MHz carrier aggregation

     

    SEQUANS has introduced a breakthrough with new soc CASSIOPEIA.

    “There are two kinds of carriers [that will benefit],” Karam told RCR Wireless News. “If they have not much spectrum, they can bundle their bandwidth with [that of] another small carrier. … We are able to take any two carriers and bundle them. We can do [5x5], [15x5], any combination up to [20x20].”
    While aggregation of different carriers’ holdings can create a whole worth more than the sum of the parts, the technology is also very interesting to larger operators because they often have spectrum holdings in different band classes. “You can have China Mobile or Verizon or Sprint/Clearwire with a lot of bandwidth. They could be bundling [20x20] and offer big throughput,” said Karam. “This could take [download speeds] up to 300 Mbps, while today the max is 150 Mbps.”

    • It's a 2 piece, IC pureLTE or multi-G proposition. the device makers want one chip solutions to save on total component BOM and it also reduces pcb real estate.
      As i've said in the past, I have respect for Sequans engineering-they are good. But the marketing/business development guys should be replaced. The salesguys are doa with a 2 IC solution.
      All i'm saying is, the Sales guys would have way better chances in landing customers with a
      monolithic LTE-A/RF solution(means one single chip solution).
      Bottom line and then I'll hush. The LTE/RF(baseband/transciever) should be one single chip...
