DFE 8x8 100MHz TD-LTE Radio Unit

A rapid increase of the deployment of heterogeneous networks is helping deliver the high-speed networks, where we need them, with the capacity that is demanded. Many tier 1 suppliers have discovered that their existing designs don’t scale well. When designing mixed mode radios, there are many variables: the number of antennas, which air interfaces to support, bandwidth, and frequency. The Kintex® UltraScale™ family provides a scalable platform to ensure that a single system can be redeployed for multiple providers, in multiple regions, without a complete system redesign.
