Introduction

In 2016, Nutaq shared its expertise on LTE in 15 cities across Asia, Europe and the United States in full-day workshops called “Discover SDR-Based LTE & Pave the Way to Smarter Testing”. The workshop tour was a huge success and the participants really enjoyed discovering such a cost-effective alternative to carrier grade network equipment or test & measurement equipment.

In the upcoming weeks, we will share most of the content of these workshops on our blog. We invite you to stay tuned to learn more about the SDR architecture and Amarisoft’s LTE stack, how to configure and launch eNodeB/EPC, how to connect UEs to perform speed tests, explore carrier aggregation, learn about multi-operatore core network, …

Pico LTE – a LTE eNodeB-in-a-box

This first blog is an introduction to the Pico LTE, an LTE eNodeB-in-a-box / EPC that combines Nutaq’s PicoSDR to Amarisoft’s LTE stack.

We introduce PicoSDR and discuss its hardware features and capabilities including the RF front-end, the FPGA, the onboard DDR3 RAM,etc. We also discuss Amarisoft’s LTE stack and compare it with 3GPP’s LTE Architecture.

Questions?

If you have questions, we invite you to ask them by email and we’ll select a few of them to which we’ll reply for the last blog of this series.
