CommAgility & IDY cooperate to develop small cell technology
CommAgility has announced its software and hardware products have been chosen by IDY Corporation of Tokyo, Japan, for a research project to advance 4G and 5G small cell technology.
IDY is licensing CommAgility’s SmallCellPHY and SmallCellSTACK software, which provide a complete LTE Physical Layer and LTE Protocol Stack for small cell eNodeB products. CommAgility has integrated the software onto its AMC-K2L-RF2 ARM- and DSP-based processing card, which includes two wideband RF transceiver channels.
