The A-Z's of Mobile World Congress 2017

MulteFire Alliance

The MulteFire Alliance has completed its Release 1.0 specification which defines LTE operation stand-alone in unlicensed and shared spectrum, while ensuring fair sharing of spectrum with other users and technologies such as Wi-Fi. MulteFire delivers LTE-like performance with Wi-Fi-like deployment simplicity. 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.

In Hall 7 at MWC 2017 MulteFire Alliance member companies will be demonstrating MulteFire technology demonstrations, showcasing MulteFire’s performance benefits. In addition, the Alliance will host an open event in Press Room 1 on February 28 from 2-4 p.m. that will highlight the business models for deploying a MulteFire network.
