Octasic Partners with Continuous Computing to Build Femtocell-Picocell Platform


Wireless and media processing solution provider, Octasic Inc has announced new partnership with Continuous Computing, the global provider of hardware and software solutions, to integrate their respective “small cell” products to enable equipment providers to rapidly produce Universal Mobile Telecommunications System femtocells and picocells.

 
This new collaboration will allow system designers to evaluate Octasic’s UMTS physical layer coupled with Continuous Computing’s Trillium Femtocell (News - Alert) protocol software.
 
The integrated platform utilises complete radio sub-system from Analog Devices Inc (News - Alert) and is based on the ADF4602 multi-band 3G femtocell transceiver and the latest low power broadband MxFE convertor.
 
Along with it, this new platform opens up the way to utilise Trillium Iuh 3GPP Release 8 Home NodeB software integrated with Octasic’s (News - Alert) High Speed Packet Access physical layer running on Octasic’s Vocallo BTS, Opus-based baseband processor, which is helpful to the designers.
 
Manish Singh, vice president of Product Line Management at Continuous Computing (News - Alert) said that the market for pico- and femtocell-based applications is enormous – and growing every day.
 
“Given Octasic’s strong commitment to the wireless broadband market, we are pleased to work in collaboration to integrate our femtocell-optimized products that provide equipment manufacturers with the most effective small cell solutions.”
 
Emmanuel Gresset, vice president of Software Defined Radio at Octasic said that the ability to integrate Continuous Computing’s products with their own in just a few weeks demonstrates the benefits of their full software approach: flexibility, ease of system integration and faster time-to-market.
 
“This ensures that 100 percent of the control and signal processing is done in software on the DSP and the CPU, all the way down to the analog converter’s interface,” Gresset added.
 
Both the companies took part in Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona to demonstrate the integrated UMTS femtocell/picocell platform.
