E-Band secures funding to develop next-gen small-cell wireless backhaul system

E-Band Communications Corp of San Diego, CA, USA, which designs and manufactures multi-gigabit capacity wireless backhaul systems based on 70-80GHz millimeter-wave integrated circuit (MMIC) technology for 4G/LTE networks, has secured funding from “a new strategic investor from the telecom community” to complete development of its next-generation ‘small cell’ wireless backhaul system.

The firm says that small cells are becoming increasingly important in the wireless space as widespread demand for bandwidth continues to be driven by smart phones, tablets, laptops, ultra books and other multimedia devices. Small cells, which consist of compact wireless base-stations connected to small wireless backhaul systems, will be deployed as part of 4G networks worldwide to provide performance and capacity uplift to help ease network congestion and the backhaul bottleneck created by this rapidly growing bandwidth need.

“Compact size, affordability and bandwidth delivery are the ingredients that network service providers and mobile carriers are looking for,” says CEO Sam Smookler. “E-Band’s track record of delivering over 5000 millimeter-wave 80GHz wireless terminals with outstanding proven network reliability positions us well for addressing the burgeoning 4G/LTE market along with its small cells,” he reckons.
