We are pleased to announce our partnership with Gigabyte on LimeNET 5G CrowdCell which will be showcased as part of the 5G Smart City on Gigabyte Virtual Show that kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday 30th June.
Ofcom has made prime mobile spectrum available in four bands via shared access licences which are low cost and straightforward to apply for.
Having provided the general-purpose processing technology at the heart of the LimeNET CrowdCell, Gigabyte is now going to market with a fully-supported ready-to-deploy implementation of the ultra-low-cost software-defined small-cell system powered by Lime Micro's LMS7002M field-programmable radio-frequency IC technology.
"The TIP community has had a significant impact on opening up telecom networks to lower costs, increase innovation, and help operators extend the benefits of high quality connectivity to more communities across the world," says Tenorio. "As Chair I will champion continued innovation and the opening up of supplier ecosystems to more competition."
Modular design includes high-performance general-purpose processing (GPP), LimeSDR-based software defined radio (SDR), and an app ecosystem designed to speed development, deployment, and reconfiguration of network services ranging from voice and data relay to edge-network processing and caching.
"We need a new architecture for applications that changes the fixed, hierarchical client/server model," says Armani. "We need to build a larger, faster cloud where billions of devices at the edge can participate as either clients or servers, and provide services directly for one another. We need the edge cloud."
Attendees to MWC 2019 will find Lime Microsystems in Hall 7 Stand 7J22, and also as part of the Telecom Infra Project in Hall 2.1 Stand 2.1B27Ex.
"We share a software-defined vision with Canonical," explains Lime Micro's Ebrahim Bushehri. "Ubuntu Core, snaps, and IoT app stores create a secure, open-source platform that enables our partners to develop and deploy new disruptive technologies quickly."
UK telecommunications regulator aims to make new, simpler, and more affordable licences available by the second half of 2019, pending the outcome of its current consultation.
