Software-defined radio (SDR) solutions provider mimoOn GmbH has added key wireless and software engineers from Nokia's research location in Bochum, Germany and Helsinki, Finland. The team includes members with backgrounds and focus in software-defined radio, baseband design, software architectures, and UMTS/Long Term Evolution (LTE) PHY and protocol layer implementation for wireless handsets and base stations.

"The mobile wireless world is transitioning to fourth-generation standards in order to support high bandwidth applications such as mobile video, multimedia, Internet browsing, and interactive gaming. mimoOn is well positioned with its 4G LTE solutions which are finding market traction throughout the ecosystem, from macrocell, picocell, femtocell and test equipment manufacturers to semiconductor providers. These Nokia engineers will help propel the company securely into its next growth phase," commented Thomas Kaiser, CEO of mimoOn.

mimoOn's solutions are optimized for low memory footprint, as well as for processing power and power consumption. The PHY, MAC, RLC, PDCP, and RRC components are all fully featured, based on the Release 8 baseline specifications from 3GPP. In addition, mimoOn's solution is entirely software defined, so it is easy to modify or customize even after being deployedan important feature as the standards for LTE will continue to be revised well into 2009.

mimoOn will demonstrate its LTE SDR solutions at the NGMN Industry Conference in Frankfurt from June 25-27.
