Huber+Suhner sees the 450MHz band for LTE as important for resilient and secure high-performance communication networks worldwide as the band frees up from analogue services.

“We realised long ago the impact that poor connectivity can have on mission-critical communications. Since then, we have used our expert knowledge across the three markets of Communications, Industry and Transport to develop connectivity solutions specifically for critical communication in the defence, energy, industrial, transport, and wireless sectors,” said Oliver Schmidt, Managing Director DACH at Huber+Suhner. “We look forward to being part of the 450 MHz Alliance and contributing to the success of this crucial technology of the future.”

Drawing on its expertise following the completion of its acquisition of Kathrein Special Communications in 2019, the company provides antennas, wavelength division multiplexing products and systems, optical switches, and RF components such as GPS and Power-over-Fibre systems.  

“In order to continue moving forward with 450 MHz technology, collaboration and knowledge is vital,” said Igor Virker, Managing Director at the 450MHz Alliance. “We strongly believe in the potential of the 450 MHz spectrum and we are delighted to have Huber+Suhner join the Alliance, alongside our other members, to support us in our mission of global deployment to the highest standards in this market.”

As 5G deployment becomes more prevalent, the 450MHz spectrum will increasingly lend itself to advancing mission-critical communication networks says the Alliance. Ericsson joined in August, joining Nokia, Telit and Altair among others.
