Kyocera Demos iBurst at CTIA
Kyocera Communications, a sales, marketing and service organization for Kyocera and Sanyo-branded products in the Americas, presented their technology portfolio of four broadband wireless devices at the CTIA trade show in Las Vegas. Along with its full line of mobile phones, the company showed a prototype all-in-one LTE base station along with three iBurst terminal devices in its booth at this years event.
“Kyocera is well positioned to support the growth of this very important segment of the wireless industry with innovative, high-performance products,” said Eiichi Toriyama, president of KCI. “Kyocera is better known as a leading provider of wireless phones to many global markets, but the company also has a very strong track record for producing best-in-class, award-winning data devices and infrastructure products.” Kyocera displayed three iBurst terminal devices at the trade show: a USB device, a 1MB desktop modem and a 2MB desktop modem. iBurst, a High-Capacity Spatial-Division Multiple Access (HC-SDMA) technology, is a solution for mobile broadband wireless communication. Along with voice services on par with fixed-line communications, it offers wide coverage, high spectrum efficiency over narrow bandwidths and field-proven capabilities for immediate implementations. iBurst carries several international standards, including ANSI “HC-SDMA,” ITU-R M.1801 Recommendation and IEEE802.20 625k-MC mode for enhanced iBurst technology. In January, iBurst’s user terminals earned a “Grant of Equipment Authorization” from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The iBurst system has been field-proven in more than 10 countries worldwide, including the US, and is available in 1.7, 1.9 and 2.0 GHz configurations.
