Sequans helps Globe Telecom transition from WiMAX to LTE in Philippines
October 7, 2014

As announced by Globe Telecom last week, the operator is expanding its LTE network in Visayas and Mindanao and has activated its first site in Lahug, Cebu City as part of its initiative to transform its existing WiMAX network to LTE.

Globe, the second largest telecoms provider in the Philippines with 45 million customers, will deploy Alcatel-Lucent’s LTE Radio Access Network in 1200 sites in the region, according to a deal executed between the two companies on September 17.  In a statement, Globe said that the WiMAX to LTE network migration it is undertaking helps to answer the ever-increasing demand of the population for broadband access.

The dual-mode WiMAX/LTE subscriber devices in the Globe network expansion are powered by Sequans’ Mont Blanc dual-mode LTE/WiMAX Platform, which is the only chip solution in the industry to provide WiMAX and LTE in a single die. The dual mode devices allow Globe subscribers to seamlessly upgrade from WiMAX to LTE without changing devices.

Globe is one of several WiMAX/LTE operators that Sequans considered when developing its 4Sight program to streamline the WiMAX to LTE network migration.  In addition to the Mont Blanc dual-mode WiMAX/LTE Platform, 4Sight includes dual-mode reference designs and multi-radio coexistence and multimode handover technologies.
