MulteFire Alliance Completes Release 1.0 Specification2017-01-17 09:42 by Daniela
The MulteFire Alliance, an independent, diverse and international member-driven consortium defining and promoting MulteFire, today announced the completion of its Release 1.0 specification, a key milestone in bringing MulteFire technology to market.
Release 1.0, based on 3GPP Releases 13 and 14, defines LTE to operate in unlicensed and shared spectrum, while ensuring fair sharing of spectrum with other users and technologies such as Wi-Fi. By removing the requirement for an anchor in licensed spectrum, MulteFire enables new use cases and new deployments to take advantage of the benefits of LTE technology.
The MulteFire Release 1.0 specification includes enhancements for operation solely in unlicensed spectrum such as robust procedures for mobility, paging, initial access and efficient uplink control channels. It implements Listen-Before-Talk for fair coexistence with technologies using the same spectrum such as Wi-Fi and LAA, as well as co-existence between different MulteFire networks.
The specification supports a range of LTE services, including Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and high speed mobile broadband.
