R&D, University and labs

Touching to learn is the best path to excellence. An affordable solution like ours allows students and researchers to have their own Base Station to work on their project. Theorical behaviours and best practises can instantly be compared with each other.

Integrator and wireless solution provider

We can really accelerate your roadmap and you can save a lot of R&D investment relying on our “instant live” software suite.

Measurement and testing

Testing of handsets becomes accessible to small and medium company producing lower quantity. The LTE 100 can help them making their measurements and testing with a very low budget.
