Designed to deliver enhanced mobile broadband experiences

The networks business of Motorola, Inc. recently introduced a high capacity LTE solution, the WBR 700 Series LTE eNodeB. The WBR 700 Series - the company's fourth generation orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) solution and its second generation LTE platform, offers unprecedented capacity and density in a 1U rack that is one of the smallest and most energy efficient eNodeBs in the industry.

The addition of this industry-changing eNodeB is further evidence of Motorola’s readiness to deliver commercial LTE networks to the market.

“Wireless operators want a true mobile broadband network that can support more data connections and longer data sessions while delivering better quality of service and lower total cost of ownership. The WBR 700 Series is built for that exact purpose – to deliver a superior mobile broadband experience,” said Bruce Brda, senior vice president, Motorola Networks. “Operators also are looking for an experienced partner to deploy their 4G solutions. Motorola, with our years of OFDM experience and success in WiMAX, meets that criteria.”

Motorola’s new WBR 700 Series will support FDD as well as TD-LTE solutions in a wide variety of frequencies from 700MHz to 2.6GHz. It boasts an LTE baseband that has up to four times the capacity of the average LTE baseband currently on the market, enabling the deployment of multiple antenna schemes that support higher throughput to deliver superior mobile broadband experiences. For example, Motorola’s initial performance tests show the WBR 700 Series in a 4TxX8Rx TD-LTE configuration will offer up to 200 per cent higher throughput compared to an average 2TxX2Rx LTE eNodeB.
Leveraging the high capacity of the WBR700 Series, operators will be able to deploy multiple LTE carriers at different frequencies.  This additional capacity offers operators greater flexibility as well as investment protection as they roll out LTE across their network.

The WBR 700 Series builds upon Motorola’s more than 10 years of OFDM experience and multiple antenna technology expertise, along with its extensive field experience in wireless broadband, to provide a spectrally efficient and modular design that supports a large variety of site deployment scenarios.
