Case Study 1 - WCDMA Base Station
The client was an SME company that manufactures and supplies mobile GSM base-station products for use by governmental security agencies. They wanted to develop their product range, and competitiveness, by being the first company to offer a WCDMA based product that would operate with 3G mobile phones.
Wireless Solutions worked with the client to define use cases and requirements specifications for the base station, and then undertook a product development programme to design a new 3G mobile base station, based upon a COTs pico-Node B plus bespoke RF module, high power RF PA, microprocessor modules and high current PSUs. A number of fully functioning prototypes were delivered to the client along with a full manufacturing data-pack which defines all processes required for the client to manufacture the unit. Whilst Wireless Solutions developed all of the base station hardware, including complex mechanics, the client developed proprietary software which utilises the base station to deliver the required overall system functionality. The product became a successful and leading component of the client’s product range and is in use by government agencies around the world.
