Lime Microsystems: bladeRF, Legba partner on first software defined mobile network

YateBTS developer Legba and bladeRF creator Nuand have announced a partnership to give access to the 3.5 billion people worldwide with no access to a mobile connection.

The partnership brings together Legba’s open source software for 2.5G networks with Nuand’s software defined radio, based on Lime Microsystems’ fully programmable RF transceiver technology. This has resulted in the release of YateBTS 3.0.

The software defined radio technology builds on proven military implementations of such technology and seeks to bring affordable mobile network access to the 3.5 billion people who currently are without any connectivity.

Key Facts:

- The affordable bladeRF board has an entirely programmable FPGA and a large community of developers. It uses Lime’s field programmable RF transceiver to deliver a simple, high performance and low cost software defined radio board.

- The partnership among Legba, Nuand and Lime Microsystems proves traditional mobile networks can be expanded and made more affordable by innovative solutions.
