MulteFire Alliance Industry Liaisons
LTE-based solutions in the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band, utilizing shared spectrum, enable both in-building and outdoor coverage and capacity expansion. The CBRS Alliance aims to enable a robust ecosystem towards making LTE-based CBRS solutions available. The MulteFire Alliance and CBRS Alliance support LTE technologies in the USA CBRS (3.55-3.7 GHz band).
Wireless Broadband Alliance
The Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) supports the development of a converged wireless broadband ecosystem through seamless, secure and interoperable service connections for all devices on Wi-Fi and its significant interconnected technologies. WBA is driving the adoption of wireless broadband and the evolution of Next Generation Wi-Fi, Connected City, Unlicensed and Licensed wireless technologies, and Wireless Innovation. The MulteFire Alliance is collaborating with the WBA on marketing initiatives to further promote LTE-based technology for unlicensed and shared spectrum.
Since 1995, TDD commercial service has been problem solving for a better ecosystem, developing technologies such as microcell and interference protection. TDD in Japan has been enhanced as the XGP specification, adopted in 3GPP standards and making it possible to share the ecosystem with TD-LTE. The XGP Forum cooperates with TDIA and GTI to expand XGP and TD-LTE. As a MulteFire Alliance Industry Liaison, the XGP Forum is supporting the Alliance’s objective to promote MulteFire technology operation using the 1.9 GHz band in Japan (sXGP).
