Altair Semiconductor has released a cost and feature-optimized chipset tailored for the Indian TD-LTE market, which is expected to become one of the fastest-growing LTE markets in the world.

The chipset, dubbed “Hornet,” is the result of several years of working very closely with leading carriers in India, and was developed based on the stringent cost and performance requirements of the Indian wireless market.

“The combination of the explosive growth expected in India’s broadband market, together with the challenging cost requirements to enable this growth, is very unique compared to other global markets,” said Eran Eshed, co-founder and VP of marketing and business development at Altair.

Altair is a market leader in the global TD-LTE industry. Altair-based products are commercially deployed in Brazil and the company has completed advanced pre-commercial field trials with carriers around the world, including Softbank in Japan, China Mobile and leading carriers in India. Altair’s TD-LTE solution is the first to have demonstrated Category 4 throughputs publically in China and Japan.
