MulteFire backers seek wireless and cable constituents

Qualcomm's MulteFire technology, which achieves the basics of LTE-Unlicensed (LTE-U) and License Assisted Access (LAA) in the 5 GHz band without needing to own spectrum, has gained support and skepticism.

Neville Meijers, VP of business development for Qualcomm Technologies, is a spokesperson for the MulteFire Alliance, a group founded by Qualcomm, Ericsson, Nokia and Intel in December 2015. He told FierceWireless that the final technical spec for MulteFire is on schedule for release in the fourth quarter of this year.
