Icera Demos LTE/HSPA Modem
Icera's advantage is to deliver multimode LTE technology in software at no additional silicon cost. This was highlighted by the fact that the Icera LTE/HSPA demos were run on commercial HSPA USB data sticks, using existing hardware platforms and chipsets, simply with an LTE/HSPA firmware upgrade.
Steve Allpress, CTO and VP Modem Software of Icera Inc., said: "Icera's soft modem technology enables us to be consistently ahead of the competition with modem innovations that are providing continuous competitive advantage to our customers. Unlike any other baseband technology, Icera executes the entire modem in software on a specific high performance processor. This approach provides a unique flexibility to maintain a lead in modem performance, optimizing network capacity at no additional silicon cost."
