Qualcomm makes first MulteFire over-the-air connection

Monday 17 October 2016 | 16:01 CET | News
Qualcomm Incorporated announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, successfully made an over-the-air connection via MulteFire using listen-before-talk (LBT), a world first according to the company. MulteFire is a mobile technology based on LTE that operates solely in unlicensed spectrum. As part of the test, Qualcomm demonstrated that MulteFire, with full co-existence capability in operation at all times, can provide LTE-like performance while fairly co-existing with Wi-Fi on the same 5 GHz channel in unlicensed spectrum.
