mmWave technology for 5G levels of throughput will allow dramatic changes for data connectivity across multiple applications. As an integrated platform, providing the full end-to-end application software is complex requiring detailed understanding of the technologies from the beginning of the link to the end, as well as sophisticated programmability. Blu Wireless provides this knowledge of the end-to-end requirements across an ecosystem of 5G hardware, software and systems. Our extensively tested, commercially deployed application software offers a sophisticated solution with the highest data throughput, performance, range, and mobility.
Highly programmable software
A programmable platform is only as good as its software. Detailed expertise in the software development of both the physical link, the standards and the applications is essential to deliver the best performance of a millimetre wave communications link. Our flexible, high performance hardware architecture allows additional features to be added in software rather than relying on new versions of a chip. This provides our customers with the flexibility needed to set up high performance mmWave networks for demanding applications and be able to respond to changing requirements swiftly.
Network Management System
Our complete Network Management System (NMS) provides our customers with full control over their mmWave network. Particularly essential for supporting networks at scale, the NMS boasts a rich feature set including performance monitoring, individual device configuration, network health statistics and fault management system, conveniently consolidating all essential network data into an easy to manage user interface. With a customisable dashboard and multiple user capability, customers can update, configure, and monitor the entire network ensuring they have full control at all times: from individual nodes to large-scale deployments.
Mobile Connection Manager
Blu Wireless latest application-level IP is the Mobile Connection Manager (MCM). Originally developed for highly demanding and complex rail applications, this proprietary software has been extended to support additional high-speed and mobility applications for both rail and vehicle use cases. Taking flexibility to a new level, this software can be easily modified post-release, remotely or in the field to meet new or unforeseen requirements.
“Blu Wireless is quite unique – not only are they very knowledgeable and capable in terms of designing semi-conductor devices or chips but they also have profound knowledge in the software capability and support – a complete team.”
