Verizon opens LTE Innovation Center Lab

To help deliver new devices that connect things wirelessly using 4G LTE technology

By CBR Staff Writer

Verizon Wireless has opened a new lab at the LTE Innovation Center. In addition, the company has also introduced a virtual LTE Innovation Center where device developers can access an online portal to discover support services for participants at the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center and directly communicate with centre engineers.

According to the company, the new centre will be a catalyst for delivering new devices that connect people, places and things wirelessly using 4G LTE technology, and providing tools for participants to develop non-traditional products within Verizon Wireless’ array of LTE technology and product enablers in various fields, including consumer electronics and appliances, healthcare, security and telematics.

In addition to designing and testing products in a functional LTE lab environment, participants in the Verizon Wireless LTE Innovation Center will have the support of the company’s resources to enable matchmaking with various players in the ecosystem, obtain technical expertise on device-network integration.

Roger Gurnani, senior vice president for new products and services at Verizon Wireless, said: “The Innovation Center is designed to drive innovation and help foster creative solutions using LTE technology, which in turn will help in building a broad ecosystem of devices in tandem with the aggressive deployment of Verizon Wireless’ 4G network.

“Establishing a strong virtual presence will significantly enhance our ability to nurture a greater number of ideas than would be possible solely through our dedicated lab facility.”

The company previously announced that the physical LTE Innovation Center – comprised of the lab and experience centre – will be located in the Boston suburb of Waltham, Massachusetts. The experience centre of the LTE Innovation Center is anticipated to open in the first half of 2010.

At the virtual centre, device developers can get information about: the centre’s mission, goals, lab services available through the centre, such as business development opportunities, user experience testing and product design assistance, and the company’s 4G LTE network.

The virtual centre will also allow a user to interact with other programs of the company, such as the Verizon Developer Community and open development program.
