Technical description

The BGAN waveform includes all the software necessary to use the BGAN services. The solution includes code for FPGAs, DSPs and GPPs. It also handles all UE (user equipment) classes; at start up the actual UE class will be configured.

The solution is developed to be easily portable across SDR platforms and will, as far as possible, only require standard SCA interfaces. The waveform has an interface for antenna pointing and control. The physical layer manages the RF hardware, HPA and LNA. The platform can be any standard SCA compliant platform.
