Development Stage of your Startup : Pre-boot

Smart Wireless Laboratory is a provider of LTE / LTE A broadband wireless systems and solutions for both LTE UE (User Equipment) as well as eNB (Small Cell, Femto Cell, Pico Cell) that deliver high-speed data, voice and multimedia services. Smart Wireless Laboratory 's products serve operators and vertical markets such as smart utilities, transportation and public safety around the world in both licensed and unlicensed frequency bands (LTE –U) covering from 100MHz up to 6GHz, by making use of Software Defined Radio technology.

Market

The data traffic on mobile networks around the world is set to continue growing rapidly over the next decade. The ITU predicts that mobile broadband networks will need between 1340MHz and 1960MHz of spectrum to meet the anticipated demand in 2020. In most countries, that equates to an additional 600–800 MHz beyond today’s allocations.
Ideally, this new spectrum should comprise a mixture of coverage (i.e., lower frequency) and capacity (i.e., higher frequency) bands harmonized globally, or at least regionally.

Main customers

LTE is recognized as the fastest growing mobile broadband technology and becoming the most widely adopted cellular standard worldwide. LTE's global rate of adoption by wireless service providers has exceeded prior 2G and 3G deployments. The popularity of LTE is mainly due to its high spectral efficiency and high peak data rates, low-latency IP-based network, and evolutionary roadmap.
As LTE gets rolled out throughout more cities and countries, and most new handsets are LTE-enabled, a functional and available open source LTE implementation, combined with a suitable platform and reconfigurable RF frontend, is a highly-sought after, but elusive, commodity.

Problem / Customers

The Smart Wireless Laboratory aLTErnative solution is uncontestably one of the world’s most affordable, lowest power consumption, and easiest to deploy LTE solutions. Specifically designed to reach mobile subscribers, providing connectivity to IoT and M2M devices, as well as Device to Device communications (D2D, ViLTE, V2V, V2I) via LTE, and data for mission critical projects, aLTErnative opens a whole new world of possibilities for connecting low density, low income, and remote populations, as well as in areas where data communications are limited or non-existing.
