Cavium (San Jose, CA) and Quortus announced a partnership to embed Quortus’ software Evolved Packet Core (EPC) on Cavium’s OCTEON Fusion family of System-on-Chip (SoC) processors for small cell base stations. The combination of Cavium’s OCTEON Fusion processors, LTE stack software and low power, low cost eNodeB designs with Quortus’ highly efficient, fully featured EPC software turns small cells into extremely-portable, standalone rapidly-deployable mobile networks for site-specific uses such as public safety, emergency services and military applications. This allows the private network to operate without any connection to a remote centralized core enabling new deployment paradigms. The OCTEON Fusion family of SoCs and Cavium’s field-proven small cell solutions provide:
- Hardware acceleration specifically designed for LTE and 3G small cells.
- Complete software implementations (PHY + stack).
- Manufacturable hardware designs.
