New feature enables up to 70% capacity increases in fixed LTE networks

Telrad Networks, a global provider of innovative LTE telecom solutions, has announced the launch of their MU-MIMO (Multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output) technology, enabling operators to increase capacity in a network by up to 70%, and thereby increasing subscriber connectivity rates, the company said.

The new feature has been tested in a successful trial by long-term customer Seaside Wireless Communications, a Canadian Wireless Internet Service Provider located in Nova Scotia.

The new feature falls into an overall strategy by the company to increase capacity and coverage for customers. The MU-MIMO technology announcement follows two feature announcements earlier in the year for the Dual Sector/Carrier feature and Carrier Aggregation solution, both of which are now generally available.

MU-MIMO will help improve network reliability and provide higher spectral efficiency for operators around the world. The technology allows for more users to use the same spectrum without self-interference and without degrading the overall network performance. The value of increased sector capacity without the addition of new spectrum or additional hardware greatly reduces operational costs to operators and creates faster return on investment (ROI).

Seaside Communications is a locally staffed, owned and operated company that has been in business for forty years. Seaside Wireless Communications, a sister company, provides high-speed Internet services to rural communities throughout ten counties in Nova Scotia.
