Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), the industry leader in technology for small cell base stations, has announced new customers and demonstrations, unveiled the world’s first long-term evolution (LTE) femtocell, was the only company to demonstrate working small cell time-division (TD)-LTE and frequency division duplexing LTE (FDD-LTE) solutions, and showcased 39 different commercial small cell products at the recently-concluded Mobile World Congress 2012 event in Barcelona, Spain.

“This has been yet another fantastic show for us, and one where we’ve made many key announcements,” said Raouf Y. Halim, chief executive officer at Mindspeed. “Mobile World Congress was also Mindspeed’s first public appearance after our acquisition of Picochip, and we’ve been able to show just how much of a lead we now have in the small cell space. Small cells are now playing an essential role in many of the world’s biggest networks, and Mindspeed’s technology makes it possible.”

At the show Mindspeed announced:

  • A study showing that Barcelona will need 40,000 small cells by 2015 in order to deliver genuinely world-class, ubiquitous LTE mobile broadband service. The research was carried out by Dr. Doug Pulley, Mindspeed’s chief technology officer for wireless and customer premises equipment (CPE).
  • A collaboration with JUNI to jointly develop LTE femtocells and other small cell dual-mode 3G/LTE solutions.
  • An announcement from Korea Telecom (KT) that it has selected Mindspeed®’s Transcede® System-on-Chip (SoC) baseband processors for its LTE small cell development. The collaboration supports the carrier’s migration to dual mode (LTE and 3G)
  • A demonstration with Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) of the industry's first commercial-grade, production-ready TD-LTE small cell reference design. There was also a demonstration of a tier one customer’s TD-LTE small cell base station using Mindspeed’s Transcede SoC baseband processor.
  • A co-operation with Contela, Inc. to jointly develop advanced LTE femtocells and other small cell dual mode 3G/LTE solutions.
  • A demonstration with Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), of LTE base station advances – specifically, a commercially-available eNodeB small cell reference design based on a single SoC.
  • An announcement from TEKTELIC Communications that the company has launched what it claims is the industry’s smallest fully integrated micro eNodeB, which was developed using Mindspeed technology and software from the Aricent Group.

“Once again, we’ve shown off more customer products and more real-world deployments for infrastructure than any competitor,” said Rupert Baines, vice president of marketing at Mindspeed. “Last year we saw a lot of operators and vendors start seriously talking about small cells; this year has been all about demonstrating real products, with small cells using our technology even providing coverage for Mobile World Congress attendees at the Fira Montjuïc exhibition center.

“We have built on our industry lead in LTE, with more than two dozen customer engagements, commercial products from JUNI, Contela, Tektelic and more – and now real deployments with KT and others. Finally, we were the only company to demonstrate operational LTE FDD and TD-LTE small cells, another area in which Mindspeed is setting the pace for the industry.”

At the show Mindspeed exhibited:

  • 39 unique femtocells and small cells, including those in commercial service with service providers from around the world for HSPA, LTE and TD-SCDMA.
  • Real-world ecosystem participation from Mindspeed collaborators.
  • Six different TD-synchronous code division multiple access (SCDMA) femtocells and picocells for the Chinese market.
  • HSPA and LTE picocell-class products for enterprise, metro and rural markets, with power levels ranging from 250mW to 2 x 5W.
  • Seven different LTE small cells, including designs from KT, JUNI and Tektelic.
