STAINES, UK — September 10, 2014 — NextG-Com, an expert in embedded software products and services for LTE, M2M and satellite communications, announced today an agreement to license the ALPS 520 LTE Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocol stack and Layer 1 firmware control module to Nufront Co., a Chinese specialist in wireless broadband communication and IC design.
The NextG-Com ALPS520 LTE protocol stack implements Layers 2 and 3 for 3GPP Release 11 compliant implementation for User Equipment (UE) terminals, supporting FDD and TDD. The ALPS520 is completely tested against 3GPP 36.523 conformance tests.
ALPS520 is the first Release 11 compliant LTE protocol stack from NextG-Com based on a modular architecture and well defined interfaces, designed to enable easy customization to suit different market needs from high performance smartphone type devices to low memory, low cost M2M applications.
NextG-Com will provide tools and support to assist Nufront during future developments incorporating the licensed technologies.
This license from NextG-Com will assist Nufront accelerate future product development and reduce time to market.
“We are delighted to announce our first license agreement and be working with Nufront. We believe the modular architecture and design of our protocol stack, will assist Nufront to deliver the latest LTE features to customers, and look forward to a long and successful relationship.” said Denis Bidinost, CEO, NextG-Com.
“With the software platform provided by NextG-Com, the development of our 2G/3G/4G multi-mode modem chipsets will be accelerated. We are also very interested in building a long and solid relationship with NextG-Com.” said Stephen Si, CTO, Nufront Co.
