Motorola WBR 500 series delivers exceptional coverage and capacity performance; gives operators deployment flexibility and significant total cost of ownership benefits
The Home & Networks Mobility business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced the addition of the Wireless Broadband Radio (WBR) 500 series frame-based eNodeB to its LTE portfolio. The WBR 500 frame-based series complements the WBR 500 remote RF-based eNodeB series introduced earlier this year. As part of Motorola’s complete LTE solution, the Motorola WBR 500 series LTE Macro eNodeB delivers on the promise of LTE with exceptional coverage and capacity performance, even in the most challenging RF environments.
Motorola’s WBR 500 series is an LTE standards-based solution built using Motorola’s fully programmable FLeX Modem technology. The WBR 500 series can be deployed in both new and existing GSM, UMTS, HSPA, CDMA, or TD-SCDMA cell sites, and will support Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) or Time Division Duplex (TDD). It will be available in a range of frequencies from 700MHz to 2.6GHz with bandwidths from 1.4 MHz to 20MHz.
“LTE is an exciting new technology that will let users enjoy a desktop-like broadband experience while on the go, but it also presents an array of new technical challenges for operators, ” said Bruce Brda, senior vice president and general manager, Wireless Networks, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. “Motorola is a leading contributor to the LTE standards and has years of experience in designing and deploying optimised, end-to-end, flat all-IP networks. This expertise has given us the ability to deliver an LTE solution with our eNodeB that operators can rely on to provide the coverage and capacity needed to support their customers’ growing demands for mobile broadband.”
The WBR 500 series leverages Motorola’s Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and advanced antenna technology expertise, along with extensive field experience, to provide a spectrally efficient and modular design that supports a large variety of site deployment scenarios. The environmentally conscious WBR 500 series is designed to deliver superior power efficiency through advanced amplifier technologies to give operators a solution that saves energy use and trims operating expenses.
