Thinking Differently About VoLTE and Next-Generation Wireless Voice Services

August 19, 2013 11:29 am | by Brock Butler, Marketing Director, Spirent Communications | Comments

As LTE networks start to mature across the world, more and more carriers are looking introduce voice services on LTE networks using a technology called Voice over LTE (VoLTE). What is not always understood is that voice services on LTE are very different from those on 2G and 3G networks. An appreciation of the differences leads us to the conclusion that we must think and act differently for 4G.

Multilayer Organic Technology for RF/Wireless Components in Multiband Applications

July 31, 2013 3:07 pm | by George White, PhD, and Michael Ulrich, AVX Corporation, www.avxcorp.com | Comments

Today, low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC), multilayer ceramic (MLC) and ceramic mono-block technologies are the dominant choices for the implementation of surface mount components for RF passive filters, diplexers, baluns and front end modules. LTCC is the most popular ceramic technology since it uses miniature lumped components, which can be optimized for operation over a wide band of frequencies.
