Presto Engineering is working with Nokia for the industrialization of equipment for the next generation of 80GHz microwave links.
The two are working together in the DIMIT 5G project for RF testing beyond 80GHz, supported by the French Public Investment Bank (BPI). This will develop a new generation of microwave links that are more integrated with the 5G and future 6G markets.
The project involves studying and industrializing new microwave transmission equipment to enable the densification and enhancement of 5G RAN networks with a new generation of RF test equipment using the ASIC design services of Presto.
“We are extremely proud to pursue our collaboration with Nokia as a test technology enabler, designer and manufacturer of ASIC chips for the telecommunications market. We are continually striving to push the barriers of testing beyond the limits of standard automatic test equipment,” said Cédric Mayor, CEO of Presto Engineering in France.
“Nokia is continually investing in the research and development of cutting-edge technologies to push back the performance limits of telecoms infrastructures. Thanks to the DIMIT project, supported by the French Public Bank of Investment (BPI), and our collaboration with Presto, we can accelerate our roadmap and accompany the evolution of 5G networks towards 5G+ and 6G. This project will enable greater integration, higher performance and lower energy consumption of new microwave equipment,” said Pierre-Gaël Chantereau, President of Nokia France.
