Altair Semiconductor (Israel) has announced that its FourGee-3100/6202 chipset is now capable of supporting LTE deployments on the 450MHz frequency band. Its low frequency and excellent propagation characteristics make the 450MHz band a very attractive and low-CAPEX alternative to the narrowband and less spectrally efficient CDMA450 technology currently in use. Features include:

  • Native support for a frequency range of 380 - 470 MHz on a single chipset.
  • Full support of 3GPP Release 9 bands in the range of 700-2,700 MHz.
  • 450 MHz compliance for broadband services to people in remote and rural areas.
