Interphase and Signalion Announce Industry's First Complete eNodeB Development System

(PresseBox) (PLANO, Texas and Dresden, Germany, ) Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), a leading global provider of solutions for converged communications networks, and Signalion GmbH, a leading provider of application specific wireless systems, announce the availability of a complete LTE development system based upon the Interphase iSPAN 36701 Wireless Base Station AdvancedMC(TM) (AMC) and the Signalion SDR Wide-Range Radio Frequency (RF) AMC-SRRM.

The complete eNodeB development system provides a COTS-based and pre-integrated LTE base station, an EPC simulator, eNodeB software up to Layer 3, and now the Signalion tunable RF AMC, available together for the first time. This powerful development system can significantly reduce development effort and timeline for equipment manufacturers. For eNodeB developers, the complete eNodeB development system provides an application-ready platform that gets the lab environment ready quickly for LTE application coding, and it can be used for lab trials as well as field trials while final hardware and software customization is completed. The system allows manufacturers to test with UEs from all LTE markets worldwide. For UE developers, the system makes a perfect test system for UE development labs. All of this capability is packaged in a compact MicroTCA chassis.

"This is really a game changer for base station manufacturers looking for time to market advantages in a fast-moving LTE market," said Marc DeVinney, Interphase VP of Engineering and Wireless GM. "Like Interphase, Signalion is committed to enabling companies with standards-based form factor products while offering engineering design services to customize the form factor and optimize the feature set."

"We are excited to be partnering with Interphase to combine our industry-first LTE radio head AMC with their market-leading LTE baseband technology," said Tim Hentschel, Signalion CEO. "The combination provides one universal SDR RF platform for different wireless communication systems with Multiband and MIMO support."

The complete eNodeB development system is available to order now.
