The FDD/TDD LTE+GSM multimode DUS 31 02 eNodeB solution from Ericsson allows mobile operators combine two digital units (DUG+DUL) into a single compact multi-mode system
Salem, NH, January 23, 2017: EJL Wireless Research is announcing a new report within its proprietary DNA-I series, an Ericsson FDD/TDD LTE+GSM DUS 31 02 multi-mode eNodeB.
“This is our second opportunity to look into the DUS 31 multi-mode digital baseband unit for Ericsson’s RBS6000 platform. The DUS remains a key part of the overall RBS6000 portfolio. While Ericsson is shifting its production to the newer Baseband 52xx products, the DUS products continue to serve a significant number of mobile operators worldwide” said founder and President, Earl Lum.
“The multi-mode FDD/TDD LTE+GSM eNodeB unit supports in LTE mode a maximum downlink throughput of 300Mbps and uplink throughput of 150Mbps well as 2,500 connected users and 800 VoLTE users. It is also capable of supporting 4×4 MIMO and a maximum of 12 cells. The unit can be operated in single mode FD LTE, single mode TDD LTE, single mode GSM, multi-mode FDD LTE+GSM or multi-mode TDD LTE+GSM. The multi-mode capability of the DUS platform allows mobile operators to free up one critical DU slot within the RBS6x01 or RBS610x/620x/630x/6601 cabinets.
EJL Wireless Research continues to lead the wireless market research segment with innovative and cutting edge research such as its DNA-I series of products.
The following semiconductor & passive component suppliers are included in this report: Amphenol, Analog Devices, Broadcom, Ericsson, Fairchild Semiconductor, Integrated Device Technology, NDK, NXP Semiconductors, ON Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, TDK-EPCOS, Texas Instruments, and Vishay Semiconductors.

Salem, NH, May 31, 2016 – The global macrocell base transmitting station (BTS) transceiver (TRx) market grew by 31% in units in 2015 and marked a third year of record shipments, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 12th Edition, 2016-2020.” “Last year marked the peak of the most recent cycle of LTE spending, driven by China. As expected, Huawei remained the world’s leading supplier however ZTE, for the first time, was able to move up to second in our market share rankings due to the demand in China. This marks the first time in the wireless industry that both Chinese suppliers are at the top of the market share globally,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global shipments and demand for base station radio transceiver equipment covering all air interface standards and frequencies and major OEMs including Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Nokia Networks, Samsung Electronics, and ZTE.

ZTE no longer exists in the eyes of U.S. based suppliers
U.S. Commerce Department’s addition of ZTE to Entity List has significant ripple effect across global wireless industry
Financial Impact not contained within U.S. based suppliers
Salem, NH, March 14, 2016: The global financial impact of ZTE Corporation being placed on the Entity List by the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security on Tuesday March 8, 2016 is significant according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Supply Chain and End Customer Impact of United States Commerce Department restrictions for ZTE Corporation.” “Unfortunately for ZTE, the current situation essentially forces the company to shut down its manufacturing operations over the next several weeks as current inventory is consumed. No U.S. based company is able to ship any product to ZTE. We do not see any reasonable near term work around in procuring critical high performance semiconductor components such as multi-core microprocessors and FPGAs” says founder and President, Earl Lum.
The analysis lists U.S. and international and companies that are currently supplying semiconductor and other electronic components and materials to ZTE’s radio access networking equipment division as well as its mobile handset division.
“We have analyzed different scenarios that may occur over the next several months to quarters with the assumption that the export ban to ZTE for U.S. companies remains in effect. The outlook at face value for ZTE is bleak without direct Chinese government intervention,” says Lum.
