NEW DELHI (India Telecom) – December 8, 2011 – 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. (NYSE: SQNS) announced that Telenet Systems, a Mumbai-based designer and manufacturer of communications products, will build TD-LTE USB dongles and desktop CPE based on Sequans’ new generation LTE semiconductor solutions.  The new devices will be used in TD-LTE operator trials and commercial deployments coming soon in India.
