The OCTBTS 3000 is the world's smallest multi-mode, fully programmable base station platform, and has proven extremely attractive for developers of hand-held and man-portable systems, as well as UAVs. The platform offers pre-integrated solutions for LTE, HSPA, GSM, and CDMA base stations. When equipped with the XPS option, which covers an extended frequency range from 400 MHz to 6 GHz, the OCTBTS 3000 also allows OEMs to develop proprietary and standards-based air links in widely-available Near-LOS and LOS bands such as 3.5 - 3.8 GHz, and 5 - 6 GHz.
'We developed the XPS option covering bands up to 6 GHz to respond to requirements from our clients for high-capacity, long-range wireless links, particularly for UAV applications' commented
The OCTBTS 3000 is ideal for vendors developing power-efficient portable and embedded solutions such as man-pack base stations, hand-held network analyzers, vehicle-mounted base stations, and UAV communications systems. End-users include tactical, public safety, and search & rescue organizations. The OCTBTS 3000 with the XPS option gives OEMs a single platform to develop LTE-based systems over the entire frequency range under consideration for LTE, and is also an efficient platform for secure communications systems based on OFDM or CDMA technology. The OCTBTS 3000 also offers hardware expansion capabilities to support additional video interfaces and codecs, and SoC-based encryption.
Sample scenarios where an OCTBTS 3000 based system equipped with the XPS option are an ideal fit include:
A public safety operator can deploy a lightweight UAV equipped with an OCTBTS 3000 XPS after a natural emergency for video surveillance work, using the proposed 5 GHz UAV band to provide secure, long-range, high-bitrate video feeds.
A tactical operator can use an OCTBTS 3000 based network-in-a-box solution for LTE broadband communications in the widely-available 3.x GHz frequency bands.
Octasic will be showcasing the entire OCTBTS family, and LTE and HSPA integrated solutions, at the Eurosatory 2014 Defence and Security Exhibition in
