The company claims that the platform offers unprecedented capacity and density in a 1U rack in one of the smallest and most energy efficient eNodeBs in the industry. The LTE-Advanced-capable design, which will be able to accommodate 3GPP Release 9 and 10 based upon the current specification, and extra capacity of Motorola’s WBR 700 Series eNodeB, also offers network investment protection and a simple software upgrade path to 4G. “Wireless operators want a true mobile broadband network that can support more data connections and longer data sessions while delivering better quality of service and lower total cost of ownership. The WBR 700 Series is built for that exact purpose – to deliver a superior mobile broadband experience,” said Bruce Brda, Senior Vice President, Motorola Networks. “Operators are also looking for an experienced partner to deploy their 4G solutions. Motorola, with our years of OFDM experience and success in WiMAX, meets that criteria.” Motorola says operators will be able to deploy multiple LTE carriers at different frequencies, providing greater flexibility.
