mimoOn and Qasara announce demonstration of high bandwidth video over LTE

12 February 2009

Cambridge, 12 February, 2009 - mimoOn, a leader in software defined radio solutions for advanced wireless standards, today announced live demonstration of high bandwidth video over LTE at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. The application will run between mimoOn’s LTE eNodeB and Qasara’s LTE Virtual UE mobile.

mimoOn’s ‘mi!Infra™’ software is full featured and certified based on the Release 8 36.XXX series specifications from 3GPP. The software is written in high level language and is in modular form so it is easy to modify or customize even after being deployed – an important feature as the standards for the protocol layers continue to be revised.


The demonstration incorporates Qasara’s LTE UE protocol stack and advanced logging tools that enable message sequences and link performance to be monitored, logged and displayed in real-time. Full configuration, set-up and release protocol exchanges between the mobile and basestation are demonstrated conforming  to the September release of the 3GPP LTE standard.


“We have been working closely with mimoOn to verify inter-operability between Qasara’s LTE UE protocol stack and mimoOn’s eNodeB  protocol implementation as the first phase of our program with mimoOn. Both companies have highly advanced LTE technology and together we are achieving outstanding results. We encountered very few problems with our joint verification programme - this fully validates our approach and the market-leading position of our protocol stack" commented Michael Barkway, Chief Executive at Qasara.


“Much of the challenge in rolling out new wireless networks is the complexity of integration of the network and device side, and ensuring that systems are standards compliant and interoperable” stated Thomas Kaiser, CEO of mimoOn. “With this demonstration, mimoOn has shown the market readiness of its solutions which will enable first-mover operators to meet time-to-market objectives for LTE”.
