Vodafone Backs LimeNET Software-defined 5G/IoT Radio Platforms

We have some BIG developments.

Vodafone, a key global operator, is backing LimeNET and supporting us to take our software defined radio technology mainstream with operator deployments.

Similar to BT / EE, which backed our LimeSDR campaign, Vodafone will provide the required backing for the launch of the new LimeNET app store and creation of new applications for wireless networks based on the LimeNET family of products alongside those from the community of developers that have backed the LimeSDR campaign.

More information on LimeNET SIM is available in the next campaign update.

LimeNET applications include IoT and 5G as well as those such as media streaming, and test and measurement.

The three current systems available to backers are:

  • LimeNET Mini is a small cell for developers creating and running residential networks including IoT / cellular.

  • LimeNET Enterprise is a newly developed system that lets you connect several LimeSDR boards and create highly-complex complex networks across a range of standards and frequencies.

  • The LimeNET wide area network in a box is among the most advanced radios available to carriers and is ideal for creating high-power / long range cellular networks that can be upgraded via over-the-air software updates.

Exciting times ahead!

Thank you for being part of this campaign.

Cheers, Jessica and the LimeNET Team
