The future wireless and mobile communications will be shifted from the traditional transmission-specific technology to the interface-specific technology to be able to converge with the computer system architecture. The OWA technology offers an optimal solution to open up the wireless platform from physical layer to the middle layers and support the service-oriented architecture and infrastructure in the upper layers of the future mobile phone development.

Working with Google Android open application platform and other industry leading solutions, OWA cores simplify the different radio transmission technologies (RTTs) into interface-based hardware/software modules which are portable, extensible and transferable among various system platforms. Furthermore, OWA makes base-band signal processing of different common air interfaces to be extremely simple and performance-efficient, and enables the future mobile phone basically open for any wireless transmission standards.

This talk introduces an open wireless architecture (OWA) terminal design, focusing on the open baseband processing platform to support different existing and future wireless communication standards through the multi-dimensional open baseband processing modules with open interface parameters and baseband management systems. The talk describes multi-layer open system architecture to maximize the system flexibility and minimize the terminal power consumption, so as to provide an integrated and converged next generation wireless and mobile communication terminal system. As a case study, we will also introduce the next generation iPhone platform supporting WiMax, WiFi, WCDMA, GSM and TD-SCDMA powered by OWA technology.
