Blu to Demonstrate V Band Phased Array Modem at Small Cells Conference

Blu Wireless will demonstrate its Lightning V Band phased array prototype modem at the Small Cells Conference at the ExCel London, 9-11 June.

The Blu Wireless Lightning Module is based on its unique HYDRA baseband technology and represents the first physical manifestation in a development roadmap, which will see the technology applied to WiGig and ultimately millimetre wave modems for the emerging 5G mobile standard.

The Lightning demonstrator grade evaluation platform has been installed as part of the Bristol is Open experimental network in order to demonstrate gigabit-speed wireless mesh networking for dynamic data backhaul applications. This is the first mesh network trial in Europe to use 60GHz and OpenFlow software defined networking.

Mark Barrett, Blu Wireless Technology CMO, who will be speaking at the conference, said: “Blu Wireless has attended the Small Cells Back Haul conference for the past three years and this is the first time we will be demonstrating our HYDRA baseband technology for backhaul and related applications.  We see this as an important validation of our technology and are planning further enhancements and developments for release in the next 12-18 months”.
