Blu Wireless Technology named as ‘Key Innovators’ in the European Commission’s Innovation Radar Platform

Today we’ve been named by the European Commission as a key innovator in its Innovation Radar Platform being launched today. This acknowledgement is bestowed as a result of our involvement in the Horizon 2020 framework, the largest research and innovation funding programme in Europe. More specifically within the 5G-XHaul project, which has proposed and is evaluating a converged optical and wireless transport network to flexibly connect small cells to the core network, Blu Wireless has developed and successfully demonstrated 60GHz millimetre-wave backhaul networks. These are ideally suited for carrier grade super-fast, low latency and economically smart 5G gigabit connectivity for […]

Blu Wireless wins UK DCMS healthcare and transport bids

advancing the use of unlicensed millimetre wave frequency bands for 5G applications

Bristol, UK, March 10, 2018 – Blu Wireless, a specialist provider of unlicensed 60GHz wireless networking solutions, today announced that it has won two pilot project bids from the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS). As part of the UK’s 5G Strategy, Blu Wireless has successfully secured funding for testbeds that will prove the commercial and public viability of its 5G technologies – which will help to bring about tangible social benefits.

Blu Wireless Technology demonstrates interference-free multi-link mmWave 5G ready network at Mobile World Congress 2018

Delivering multi-gigabit speeds using Carrier Grade 60GHz modem technology for 5G networks

At Mobile World Congress this year, we will demonstrate our Carrier Grade 60GHz modem technology for use in networks demanding low latency multi-gigabit throughput. The private, invitation only demonstration will show interference-free functionality of multiple gigabit links when deployed in an extremely dense network.

Blu Wireless CEO Henry Nurser said: “By combining the unique and patented interference management and advanced network synchronisation features present in our HYDRA modem, with the massive unlicensed mmWave spectrum available worldwide, our partners can dramatically reduce the costs of deploying advanced multi-gigabit Fixed Wireless Access […]

Blu Wireless Technology inside CCS self-organising mmWave access and backhaul solution

Metnet 12Gps unlicensed 60GHz mmWave product enabled by Blu Wireless Technology

Today we announced that our leading Hydra 1.0 mmWave modem IP technology will be demonstrated by Cambridge Communication Systems Ltd (CCS) at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona in its latest generation of Metnet products.

CCS will be introducing the new Metnet 12Gbps unlicensed 60GHz mmWave access and backhaul system, which has been enabled by the Hydra technology from Blu Wireless. Hydra’s unique set of carrier-grade features and software defined flexibility enables its partners to create clearly differentiated products within emerging […]

5G at CES – why millimetre wave fixed wireless access will dominate in 2018

CES kicks off next week and the pace at which the 5G evolution is happening means we’re sure it will be a key theme at the show – especially the fixed-wireless access space! This obviously won’t be the first year that 5G has been a key CES topic. 5G trials are well underway and billions have been committed to acquire licensed spectrum. Gigabit speeds have already been demonstrated. But so much has changed since 2017 it’s worth a look back before a look forward.

Qualcomm’s CEO Stephen Mollenkopf at CES 2017 said, “5G is so much more than faster 4K Netflix […]

Our word on the Budget – £160m for 5G

Yesterday, the chancellor laid out the priorities for spending in the UK over the coming years. We’re particularly interested in the half a billion pounds (660 million USD) that has been dedicated to new technology investments, with over a third (£160 million) of this directed at the trialing of 5G networks in the UK.

Added to this is £2.3 billion for R&D, a tax cut to 12 per cent for R&D£35 million to improve mobile connectivity on trains (answering criticism from Lord Adonis’s recent report), £1.7 billion for transport infrastructure in cities and the Chancellor’s statement […]

Mind the gap – a bridge to 5G

Last week we attended Broadband World Forum in Berlin with our partners Sivers IMA where we showcased a live demonstration of fixed wireless access at 60GHz. This in turn sparked a lot of interesting conversations…we’ve compiled a snapshot of the questions that were top of mind for some well-known tier 1 players at the show:

  1. What’s the maximum line of sight transmission range? – Up to 500m
  2. For this distance, what is the maximum throughput? – Using a lower order modulation such as QPSK, up to 2Gbps
  3. What’s the frequency bandwidth […]

Broadband World Forum Berlin – 24-26 October, Berlin


Come and see how we are cracking the last mile…today.
