The mobile operator will work with Guildford-based chipset firm Lime Microsystems to develop software-defined cellular radio platforms that support the radio access network (RAN) for 4G and NB and IoT.
Vodafone and Lime demonstrated a low cost radio at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year.
This latest development will be based on Lime’s LimeNET programmable radio platform. The field programmable radio can adapt dynamically to multiple bands.
Francisco Martin, head of radio product, Vodafone Group Technology, writes:
“Lime Micro is at the forefront of software defined radio wireless technology development, and the platform being app-enabled brings the concepts of agile and feature-rich systems together, unlocking new applications…. to build new services and a completely different radio.”
