Free and open source package includes LTE Release 8 support, selected LTE Release 9 features, and full compatibility with Lime Microsystems' LimeSDR family of open software defined radio (SDR) hardware.
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.
"Cloud computing companies have benefited from collaboration on open source," Rader explains. "Telecoms providers ought to be looking at doing the same in 2019 by making infrastructure work for everyone, improving efficiency and opening up networks for all apps on their infrastructure."
"Opportunities for all, regardless of whether an entity is interested in fixed or mobile, 5G, or another technology," says FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly of the ruling, which brings additional 5G frequencies within range of LMS7002M-based devices including the LimeSDR and LimeNET families.
Presentations available from the first day of the event include a look at the addition of support for Lime Microsystems' popular open LimeSDR devices, via the open source Lime Suite software, to the OsmoTRX project.
Lime Microsystems named as a provider of end-to-end technology for the CrowdCell Project effort to produce an open source cellular relay platform using general purpose processors (GPP) and software defined radio (SDR) technologies.
The company looks at real-world examples where the ability to connect Internet of Things sensor networks over high-bandwidth low-latency 5G connectivity to general purpose processing platforms running artificial intelligence algorithms is already making measurable improvements in yield, health, and safety.
Pairing the LMS8001 Companion with LimeSDR Mini to create a sub-$500 SDR platform with continuous coverage from 10 MHz through to 10 GHz.
We have two new demos to share featuring the LimeSDR Mini being used with SDRangel, both courtesy of Marty Wittrock, a veteran user of the larger 2x2 MIMO LimeSDR board and a keen advocate for amateur radio use.
