Software-Defined Radio (SDR) is a virtualised radio where software is used to configure the operating parameters of commodity hardware. Until now programmability has been the missing piece in the virtualised communications network and extends software control from the core to the Radio Access Network (RAN).

Extending software control from the core to the Radio Access Network (RAN) requires a new type of silicon, the field programmable RF (FPRF) device, to cater for any deployment with optimum cost and flexibility. Lime Microsystems is the leader in this field, with FPRF being a fundamental component of both LimeSDR boards and LimeNET boxes.

Software defined, virtualised radio is clearly established as the way forward for the wireless industry offering increased agility, cost savings and the opportunity to scale fast and explore new models of deployment.

Lime is working with UK mobile operator EE (part of British Telecom) to run a pilot of LimeSDR to test coverage in remote areas of Scotland – and has developed a suite of products based on the LimeSDR platform.
