Pivotal sets up shop at Luxe to show off mmWave HBF
Posted on Oct 21, 2019 by Pivotal Commware
Pivotal Commware will be conducting live demonstrations of its Echo 5G products from a conference room at the Luxe Hotel during Mobile World Congress Los Angeles this week.
Part of the reason the company chose that venue has to do with getting away from the noise that will be swirling around the Convention Center. But it also found what it believes is a good set-up to show off what its technology can do in the real world.
In a nutshell, the Pivotal team placed an Echo 5G Network device next to the Luxe such that it’s bending the 5G 28 GHz millimeter wave (mmWave) signal (provided by an unnamed operator) to the Echo 5G Subscriber device that is situated on a window of the hotel. That Subscriber device captures the signal and transfers it into the room, where it gently floods the interior of the room (as opposed to a spotlight-type of beam), according to Pivotal Commware CEO Brian Deutsch.
