Leadership in Small Cell Technology Demonstrated as Mindspeed Powers
Multiple Award Winners
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), SK Telecom and Contela have
won the Small
Cell Industry Award for Commercial Deployment (Innovation in
Commercial Deployment) at the 2012 Small Cell World Summit in London.
The award is for the deployment of the world's first data-only femtocell
service designed to offload increasing mobile data traffic caused by the
rapid growth of smartphones and tablets.
Mindspeed was the only baseband silicon company to be honored as an
award winner during the event. In addition, the winners in five other
categories at the Small Cell Industry Awards feature Mindspeed
technology 'under the hood,' including an award for Radisys Corporation
for LTE small cells developed for Korea Telecom.
"Mindspeed technology enabled many of the winning entries in this year's
Small Cell Industry Awards, providing an independent validation of our
position in the small cell area," said Raouf Y. Halim, Mindspeed's chief
executive officer. "Korea will be the first market to widely deploy 4G
LTE small cells. At a time when all carriers must address the challenge
of exponential growth in mobile data traffic, our work with Contela and
SK Telecom is particularly important as the first deployment to use a
small cell strategy purely for data offload."
"The award is recognition of SK Telecom's consistent efforts to enable
customers to experience a more convenient and flawless wireless data
service by developing and applying advanced femtocell technologies,"
said Byun Jae-Woan, chief technology officer at SK Telecom. "SK Telecom
will continue its endeavor to develop and deliver technologies that
enhance customer convenience and benefits."
Mindspeed partner Radisys was honored as the winner of the "Enabling
Technology" category for their Trillium® TOTALeNodeB software
solution. This award highlighted the LTE small cells developed by Juni
and Dongwon for Korea Telecom, which use the Radisys solution. These LTE
small cells are built on baseband processors from Mindspeed.
Mindspeed, the leader in small cell SoCs with 70% share of the HSPA
market according to data from ABI Research, has 25 LTE design
engagements with companies including KT,
Technologies, Inc., AirWalk
Communications and Tektelic
Communications Inc. In addition, the company has over 40 WCDMA
design engagements and six different time division synchronous code
division multiple access (TD-SCDMA) femtocell and picocell customer
Mindspeed is the only small cell SoC company that has demonstrated
support for both HSPA and LTE in its small cell SoCs, and is the only
one to have shown both frequency-division duplexing (FDD) LTE and
time-division LTE (TD-LTE) solutions.
