Radisys Corporation, a provider of embedded wireless infrastructure and ATCA-compliant telecom platform deployment solutions, and Mindspeed Technologies (News - Alert), Inc., have recently collaborated to demonstrate an eNodeB small cell reference design that supports the latest Trillium TOTALeNodeB software on the Mindspeed Transcede platform at the LTE (News - Alert) World Summit.
In a press release, Amit Agarwal, vice president and general manager, Software Solutions Group, Radisys said, “At LTE World Summit we are showing a glimpse of the small cell solutions being deployed by our various customers and a view into the future of the innovative solutions expected as a result of this collaboration.”
Dual-mode small cells will help operators to serve their mixed 3G and LTE customers, as well as to reduce backhaul bandwidth costs, site acquisition costs and the cost of the infrastructure itself instead of being forced to deploy separate systems.
Both the Mindspeed and Radisys solution will support carrier aggregation and will also offer operators the option to “re-farm” the 3G spectrum.
Mindspeed's latest additions to its Transcede family of processors leverage Radisys Trillium software and are complete NodeB and eNodeB SoC solutions that support concurrent 3G and LTE processing in a single device.
Radisys Trillium wireless software offers multiple 3G and LTE base station capabilities and delivers unparalleled time to market, while still providing opportunities for customers to differentiate.
Dr. Naser Adas, vice president and general manager, Wireless, Mindspeed stated, “The Transcede T2200/3300 dual-mode processors are already sampling to customers. We have LTE running and are now porting over the industry-leading 3G baseband we acquired with Picochip.”
He added, “For us, both LTE and 3G are already well-established and integrated with Radisys’ Trillium protocol stacks. We are now bringing them together onto one single platform. Given the field-proven maturity of both modes and the strong history between our two companies, we are confident that we will lead the industry in shipping carrier-class, dual-mode solutions into operator deployments.”
