SkyCross the Only Antenna Designer or Manufacturer Recognized by Huawei, Award Highlights SkyCross’ Commitment to Design Innovation
San Jose, California, April 14, 2015 – Huawei, one of the world’s leading developers of telecommunications network equipment, IT products, solutions, and smart devices, has awarded SkyCross its fourth consecutive Quality Management Excellence Award. No other antenna manufacturer has received this award to date. SkyCross is a global designer and manufacturer of innovative RF solutions for mobile devices.
“This award, earned four years in a row by SkyCross, is a tribute to the innovation of our teams and our business model that offers clients consultative design as well as manufacturing expertise. This model puts SkyCross at the center of antenna design innovation,” said Ben Naskar, CEO and chairman of SkyCross. “It closely follows Deutsche Telekom’s announcement of the world’s first trial operation of LTE 4x4 MIMO in the 800MHz low-frequency band, a collaboration among Deutsche Telekom, Huawei, and SkyCross.”
In the Telekom trial, results demonstrated that when used in the low frequency band, 4x4 MIMO technology can achieve up to double the standard access speeds and strengthens the signal inside buildings and at the edge of the cells covered by the individual base stations.
SkyCross’ 4x4 MIMO technology involves increasing the number of transmitting antennas on the side of a base station and the number of receiving antennas on the side of a mobile device from the current two to four. As a result, the maximum achievable transmission speed increases up to 100 percent (approx. 70 percent on average). The technology further enhances the spectrum utilization efficiency and the coverage quality in poorer radio conditions, particularly inside buildings and at the edges of cells covered by base station.
Huawei recognizes the top five of its more than 300 suppliers each year with its Quality Management Excellence Award.
