The availability of low cost, solid state sensors in huge volumes will allow for nearly ubiquitous sensing of our entire world, as a part of the Internet of Things. From surveillance cameras for keeping property secure to vibration sensors detecting the next earthquake, we are poised to live in an era when we will be able to understand the physical environment on a scale we have never been able to before. Tiny electronic devices, embedded in everything from toasters to bridges will be possible. Is the tsunami of data this ocean of sensors will provide truly useful?
Welcome to read! http://siversima.com/blog/ CEO Anders Storm Sivers IMA is a leading manufacturer of micro- and millimeter wave products for connecting and quantifying a networked world. Sivers IMA has a long history and is internationally renown as a reliable supplier of high quality components used in telecommunications links, RADAR sensors and test & measurement equipment. Headquarters is located north of Stockholm in Kista, Sweden. Learn more at http://siversima.com.
Sivers IMA’s latest product, TRX 1608-LT6275, a fully integrated V-band transceiver RFIC, is featured as the “Most Valuable Product” in the January issue of Microwave Journal. TRX 1608-LT6275 is suitable for many millimeter wave link applications; e.g. macro cell backhaul, small cell backhaul, fronthaul, fixed wireless access (FWA) and wireless video surveillance backhaul. This product features high integration level and superior performance, e.g. high output power and large bandwidth.
Sivers IMA is now ready to present the mmWave solution to the ever increasing demand in high capacity wireless communication. We will showcase our new fully integrated V-band transceiver RFIC, covering the FCC V-band 64-71GHz. Whether you are into backhaul, fronthaul, small cells, mesh point to multipoint or fixed wireless access your solution could benefit from the development already made at Sivers IMA. Our extensive knowledge and experience in this area is readily available to shorten your time to market and secure your position. Come discuss your interests with us and let us be a springboard to your take-off!
About 3 weeks ago, we wrote about the use of mm-wave for outdoor small cells in a blog post about small cell backhaul and how the market research companies see the explosive growth starting from 2017. At the same time, there is a push for virtualization of the macro cell base stations using Cloud-RAN (C-RAN) to reduce cost and increase densification to meet the 10x mobile data traffic growth that is happening from now to 2022 .
Outdoor small cells have not happen as expected for many years. Nonetheless are we now possibly getting close to a breakthrough? According to a report by IHS Technology, 2017 will be the year: “The real ramp in outdoor small cell deployments will begin in 2017” . IHS Technology estimates a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 80 per cent until 2020. According to another report by SNS Research mm-wave backhaul for small cells will reach 1200 MUSD in 2020 (see below picture).
Sivers IMA is pleased to announce the release of the new RS3410X/00 radar front end. Operating at 9.5-9.975 GHz, it is intended for use in safety and security applications. RS3410X/00 is developed to provide the best possible range and reliability in difficult weather conditions.
What is FWA? We have earlier referred to this as Gigabit to Home (GBTH). FWA offers fixed locations a broadband “fiber-like” services via wireless. By using mm-wave technology it is now possible to offer wireless speeds >1 Gbps at a lower price point, hence FWA is a contender for the “last mile” broadband access services. This has also been proven via the announcement recently made by Google Fiber, when they halted  the roll-out of fiber and instead announced that wireless is the future.
Sivers IMA today announced that CAE S.p.A., a state-of-the-art system supplier of environmental monitoring systems, has selected Sivers IMA as their radar module partner for their Level Probing Radar (LPR) Hydrometer product. Under this partnership Sivers IMA will deliver FMCW radar technology allowing CAE to provide a state-of-the-art LPR Hydrometer solution.
