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.

CommAgility and IDY are working together, with support from CommAgility’s Japanese distributor StarBridge, to deploy the integrated hardware and software in a variety of 4G and 5G research and development programs. The solution meets the demanding quality requirements for the Japanese market.

Kazuaki Honda, President at IDY Corporation, said: “CommAgility provides a proven system, with hardware and software integrated and tested. This means we can focus on achieving our R&D goals on the journey towards 5G, as well as offering our customers highly differentiated products.”

Edward Young, Vice President and General Manager at CommAgility, said: “IDY is undertaking leading-edge 4G and 5G research, and with the expert local support from StarBridge, we are pleased to be able to help them.”
