HANOVER, Germany -- Networking specialists LANCOM, LTE modem manufacturer Sierra Wireless, and Rohde & Schwarz, a leading provider of wireless test technology, present at CeBIT the first live public demonstration of an LTE business router with a fully integrated multi-mode radio module and pan-European network support. The demo rig can be viewed throughout the exhibition on the LANCOM CeBIT booth in Hall 13, C28.

At the heart of the live demonstration is a pre-production model of the LTE router LANCOM 1681-4G. The device features an integrated Sierra Wireless AirPrime MC 7700 multi-mode LTE modem (LTE 700). The production model of the LANCOM 1681-4G is due to be launched mid-year and will support all European frequency bands including LTE 800, LTE 1800 and LTE 2600.

Acting as the LTE peer is the R&S CMW500, the wideband radio communications tester from Rohde & Schwarz. This multi-technology platform supports LTE FDD and TD-LTE, all currently available 3G and 2G standards, and also wireline technologies. The R&S CMW500 emulates an LTE FDD base station for this demonstration. To simulate a realistic networking scenario, a multi-channel cellular connection (2x2 MIMO) is established between the LANCOM 1681-4G and the R&S CMW500. The connection is used to transmit the type of user data typically generated by an Internet connection, such as FTP uploads and downloads, video streaming and browsing through a web site. The end-to-end connection to the R&S CMW500 allows the achievable LTE data rates of the LANCOM LTE router to be measured in the upstream and downstream directions.

The LANCOM 1681-4G is the first LTE business router for the European market to be presented to the public. The major distinguishing features over previously introduced consumer models include an integrated multi-mode LTE module with fallback options to slower cellular standards such as HSPA+ or UMTS/3G, and its professional VPN functions. Ex-factory the router supports 5 IPsec VPN channels (25 optional), high-security AES encryption and digital certificates. VRRP facilitates the virtual combination of two devices to achieve the highest reliability.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
