Sivers, Intel and WiSig launch 5G mmWave solution for India
Companies to target Indian 5G market, forecast to have a turnover of $120B by the end of 2023
Sivers Semiconductors has announced a collaboration with Intel and WiSig Network to launch the world's first 5G millimeter-wave FR2 stand-alone CPE solution.
The three companies are joining forces to address the huge, imminent 5G millimeter-wave opportunity in India, but also in the long term to adhere to the global market demand for stand-alone FR2 solutions.
The Indian 5G market is expected to become one of the largest in the world, with a turnover of $120 Billion by the end of 2023, according to a report by Techarc, a market research agency.
Intel, WiSig, and Sivers are jointly developing the world’s first fully stand-alone 5G millimeter wave FR2 solution for Customer Premises Equipment (CPE), which can also be used as an integrated backhaul terminal in Sub-6 GHz 5G radio access networks. The solution is based on the Intel Agilex FPGA portfolio, Sivers RF and antenna technology, and full-stack software developed by WiSig, and will be live demonstrated in the Sivers Semiconductor stand during the MWC2023 in Barcelona, February 27 – March 2.
"We're thrilled to be working with Sivers Semiconductors and Intel to bring this solution to market," says Kiran Kuchi, founder of WiSig Network, and continues: "Our full-stack software, combined with Intel's Agilex platform and Sivers' RF and antenna technology, will provide customers with a truly unique and groundbreaking solution." This CPE solution enables operators to deploy their 5G networks at street level by supporting flexible and high-density deployments of 5G NR cells in both urban and rural areas without relying on the expensive wired backhaul”,
“It is great to see our teams joining forces to make this solution a reality and it is, yet again, a proof point that an open and agnostic approach creates the best partnerships for the ecosystem. It is not only an important solution for traditional mobile operators but will also be a significant game changer for those companies managing 5G Private Networks, as they will now have the full benefit of stand-alone 5G mmWave terminals.”, says Anders Storm Group CEO of Sivers Semiconductors.
