Take a Technology Tour

Ofinno empowers mobile device users and the carriers that serve them through cutting edge network performance innovations. Take a tour through some of the technologies that supercharge wireless networks across the globe.

New Radio for 5G

The new radio (NR) is a new study item in the 3GPP radio access network (RAN) working group and will be an enabler for the forthcoming 5G cellular networks. The 5G network focuses on enabling a seamlessly connected society that brings together people along with things, data, applications, transport systems and cities in a smart networked communications environment.

V2X

Vehicle to vehicle (V2V), vehicle to network (V2N), vehicle to infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle to pedestrians (V2P) which are also represented as V2X Communications are one of the biggest technology breakthroughs and perhaps the next big thing in the transportation industry. The V2X communications is currently designed to be implemented by the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network, however this technology may soon be designed to be implemented by 5G. Transportation is fundamental to quality of life and economic growth and the key benefits from V2X communications are increased safety, enhanced traffic flow, and efficient gas consumption.

Enhanced Carrier Aggregation

Enhanced Carrier Aggregation (eCA) is a 3GPP release 13 enhancement to the carrier aggregation technology to increase the number of aggregated carriers from 5 to up to 32 carriers and dramatically improve the data rate experienced by the end users. This enhancement entails other modifications including transmission of uplink control information on a non-primary carrier (known as secondary PUCCH cell) and other related modifications.

Internet of Things

Internet of Things (IoT) supports wireless devices to operate with low power in wide range of area by implementing enhanced Machine Type Communication (eMTC) and Narrow Band IoT (NB-IoT) features. The objective of eMTC is to provide variable data rate transmission and full-to-limited mobility. The goal of NB-IoT is to support reduced power consumption as well as low cost devices for delay-tolerant and low-throughput applications.

Enhanced LAA

Enhanced licensed assisted access (eLAA) is a new LTE Release 14 mode of operation that provides the necessary technology for cellular operators to fully integrate the unlicensed spectrum into their networks. An enhancement to the Downlink-only LTE Release 13 LAA, the eLAA technology enables both uplink and downlink operation of LTE in unlicensed bands.

LTE-Advanced

LTE-Advanced is coming. The faster speeds of the next-generation of LTE will provide a true 4G experience. LTE-Advanced is a mobile wireless technology that incorporates many enhancements to LTE technology such as carrier aggregation, heterogeneous networks, advanced antenna techniques, and enhanced control channels.

Heterogeneous Networks

Heterogeneous networks are an evolved network topology that improves spectral efficiency in a geographic area using a combination of macro-cells, pico-cells, femto-cells and relay nodes. What does that mean in practical terms? It means carriers get greater network efficiencies and end-users get the benefit of high performing mobile devices. Technologies such as inter-cell interference coordination (ICIC), load balancing, cell expansion, advanced handover signaling and access control enable efficient heterogeneous network deployments. Deployment of optimized heterogeneous networks dramatically increases network capacity.

Carrier Aggregation

LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation increases the effective bandwidth in order to improve upon the prior maximum carrier bandwidth limit of 20 MHz. Carrier aggregation achieves an increased network capacity by combining multiple carriers of various bandwidths to improve uplink and downlink transmission speeds.

Beamforming Technologies

Beamforming controls the directionality of the transmission or reception of a signal on an antenna array. Beamforming improves the spectral efficiency by providing a better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Working with other antenna technologies such as smart antennas and MIMO, beamforming boosts cell range and capacity. That means mobile device users get stronger, clearer signals.
