From Rel.8 to Rel.13 and beyond


Being SDR based solution provider, the time of implementing new features from 3GPP standardization bodies has never been so efficient. Having powerful hardware and software based LTE stack , we have clear roadmap to deliver the latest features and let you be on the edge of 3GPP-LTE technology.

Cost-Effective and Affordable

Nutaq’s Pico LTE is the perfect alternative to generate LTE waveforms over-the-air, test LTE devices for operation within the PicoLTE supported indoor small ranges, or use as LTE eNodeB in a private network. It offers you the full flexibility and access to PHY and MAC parameters without any commercial entry barrier or requiring high budgets. 


From the Lab to the field tests

Expand coverage significantly by adding external Power Amplifier (PA) and Low Noise Amplifier (LNA), allowing you to increase your cell radius.
