Radisys Corporation from its barrio announced the availability of Radisys’ Trillium TOTALeNodeB 2.0 small cell software for Broadcom Corporation’s 617xx Series dual mode system-on-chip (SoC) solutions. The integrated solution facilitates mobile operators to array LTE-FDD and LTE-TDD small cells to add needed bandwidth and coverage aimed at subscribers, while maximizing spectrum efficiency.
Mobile operators are turning to LTE small cells to be able to address growing data traffic on their networks, driven by consumer desire to download mobile video content. LTE-TDD, with its unpaired spectrum allowing flexible downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) traffic to travel in both directions on the same frequency band, is gaining traction. A number of mobile operators have announced plans to array LTE-TDD in 2014, plus China Mobile (CMCC), Softbank Mobile, Sprint and Reliance Jio.
The Radisys and Broadcom solution from its part will support Z-Com’s LTE-TDD trial deployments for CMCC in the first half of 2014 with an initial focus on the Enterprise small cell market. Z-Com is a leading global solution source dedicated to research, design, development and manufacturing of wireless data solutions for broadband wireless Internet access and various mobile data applications.
“Radisys delivers small cell solutions with advanced LTE protocol stacks and comprehensive FDD and TDD support, while Broadcom is a leader in SoCs for the residential and enterprise small cell market,” alleged Greg Fischer, vice president general manager, Broadband Carrier Access, Broadcom. Supplementing that – “The integrated solution enables the deployment of ultra-low cost, low power, high performance small cells to add essential capacity and coverage.”
“We continue to see momentum for our TOTALeNodeB small cell software for LTE-TDD deployments, particularly with our customers in Asia such as Z-Com, and Broadcom’s 617xx Series small cell silicon is ideally suited for LTE-TDD based small cells,” held Todd Mersch, general manager, Software and Solutions, Radisys. Furthering that – “We’ve been long-term collaborators with Broadcom, delivering turnkey LTE solutions to our customers to accelerate their time-to-deployment.”
