Radisys has struck a deal with Broadcom to integrate its Trillium TOTALeNodeB 2.0 small cell software with Broadcoms 617xx Series dual-mode system-on-chip (SoC) solutions. This integrated product enables mobile operators to deploy a dual-mode LTE-FDD/LTE-TDD small cells.
What makes this interesting is that the solution can add needed bandwidth and coverage for subscribers, while maximizing spectral efficiency. The solution is set for a test run in China sometime in the first half of this year. Wireless networking provider Z-Com, based in Taiwan, will be using the solution in TDD-LTE trials for China Mobile in the coming months, with “an initial focus on the enterprise small cell market.”
“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,” Todd Mersch, Radisys’ general manager of software and solutions, said in a prepared statement.
