The new, upgraded version of Lime Micro's popular LimeSDR Mini brings with it greater flexibility for on-device FPGA workloads along with a more secure component chain so supply can keep up with demand.
Boasting a field-programmable gate array with nearly three times the capacity of the original LimeSDR Mini, the upcoming LimeSDR Mini 2.0 will enable increased flexibility and experimentation with new and exciting on-device capabilities.
"The flexibility provided by this technology is especially important in the case of deployments in rural environments," Vodafone Spain explained, "because it would allow deployments to be carried out more quickly, at a lower cost and with more efficient equipment in energy terms."
"FRANC is not just about delivering better and smarter 5G products," writes Julia Lopez, minister at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport, of the FRANC project. "The scheme is looking to stimulate the British telecommunications industry in a new and open way."
Vodafone extends its partnership with Lime Micro and adds others, including Intel, Arm, Qualcomm, and Broadcom, with a view to boosting the efficiency and capabilities of its interoperable open RAN communications ecosystem.
