CoWare Long Term Evolution Webinars

CoWare is offering two free webinars for designers working on LTE designs or WiMAX. According to CoWare, wireless operators around the world are working on putting the final touches on a new standard called Long Term Evolution (LTE), which will deliver 100Mbit/s peak performance. Along with that promise of the standard, the base station providers and handset manufacturers have to reinvent their platforms. Simple scaling of the previous architectures simply will not work.
