MulteFire Alliance formed to promote unlicensed spectrum use

Wednesday 16 December 2015 | 15:33 CET | News
Founding members Nokia and Qualcomm, together with members Ericsson and Intel, have announced the formation of the MulteFire Alliance, with the stated aim of bringing enhanced wireless performance to unlicensed spectrum. MulteFire is an LTE-based technology for small cells operating solely in unlicensed spectrum, such as the global 5 GHz unlicensed band. The technology was introduced by Qualcomm earlier this year, with the company claiming that MulteFire would be able to deliver significantly improved performance in local area network deployments.
