FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY. Socowave is a research-driven Wireless Systems Company, solving the unmet needs of its cellular infrastructure customers with innovative radio product solutions. Passionate about breaking new ground, Socowave supports customers with smart, ready-to-use and high performance UMTS and LTE radio access solutions. Our advanced Active Antenna System hardware plus software platforms deliver protocol-independent capacity increases of more than 100%, while reducing energy costs by 50%.
SELF-OPTIMISING ANTENNA. In addition to innovating advanced UMTS and LTE active antenna platforms, Socowave is creating a new RF sensing and beam control algorithm suite that enables the ultimate self-optimising antenna solution. Socowave has mastered the synchronisation and DSP control challenges associated with multi-column transceiver arrays, developed a suite of 'spatial measurement' algorithms that maps hotspot locations and uses it to deliver superior e/NodeB receiver sensitivity functionality. Ongoing research into spatial mapping algorithms to realise self-optimising active antenna forms the main focus of future software programs.
FROM CONCEPT TO REALITY. Socowave has successfully completed vendor field trials of its TRIDENT active antenna system and obtained evidence of substantial performance improvements. UMTS trials have verified end-to-end mobile calling via vendor partner's network (baseband/RNC) and demonstrated the stark differences between current passive diversity (2-way & 4-way) solutions and Socowave's 4-way Active Diversity solution (TRIDENT). The trials also verified close correlation between simulated and real-world measurements and confirmed the potential of using spatial mapping to automate self-optimisation routines.
REDUCED INTEGRATION EFFORT. Speedy AAS-BBU integration for new e/NodeB solutions is made possible with Socowave's remote 'Radio Emulation Software' (RES) layer. This CPRI software layer emulates communication and control message flows of an existing approved RRU making the Trident AAS appear to the baseband unit like a known RRU. While emulating an existing RRU, Trident delivers exceptional performance through its Active Diversity 'pre-processing' functionality.
