BARCELONA -- Powerwave Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:PWAV), a global leader in end-to-end advanced wireless solutions, today announced the new LTE ultra-broadband Powerwave Picocell, which delivers up to 15 times greater overall system capacity at a much lower cost and complexity than adding standard macro cells to address "sore spots" of high data usage or weak signals in wireless networks. The product is debuting today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The new picocell is a key component of Powerwave's Inside Out Solutions topology and supports both LTE and Wi-Fi technologies. This powerful all-in-one compact base station enables wireless operators to inject broadband capacity closer to where their customers need it most. This gives each user a better signal and reduces network congestion, resulting in a faster experience and longer battery life. Additional benefits include less power consumption, faster zoning approvals and simpler installation.

Because LTE data speeds slow down with congestion and distance from the macro cell, the Powerwave Picocell delivers the fastest possible user experience for mobile devices, including video broadcast, mobile Internet, two-way video conferencing and HD video. In addition, enterprises and government agencies can build out a single infrastructure that enables users to take advantage of data-intensive applications using both LTE and Wi-Fi technologies in a single base station.

"Powerwave's new picocell offers an economical way to build out existing network infrastructure that not only immediately meets today's mobile user needs, but also provides for the future of 4G and beyond," said Khurram Sheikh, chief technical officer of Powerwave. "This product is a cornerstone of Powerwave's Inside Out Solutions, which dramatically boost data throughput at any time for LTE and Wi-Fi systems, both indoors and outdoors, providing an enhanced experience no matter where the user is located."
