Cavium signs pact with Institute for Information Industry (III) of Taiwan

Telecom Lead Asia: Cavium, a provider of highly integrated semiconductor
products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and
the digital home, announced partnership with the Institute for Information
Industry (III) of Taiwan, to develop a total out-of the-box hardware and
software solution for Taiwan’s wireless systems vendors.


The partnership will leverage Cavium’s OCTEON Fusion
small cell “base station on a chip” hardware platform and the
software development environment available for the industry-leading OCTEON
processor family to help III deliver key software components including a MAC
(L2/L3) layer, self organizing networks (SON) and remote resource management
(RRM) applications, and other features expected by providers of 3G and 4G
wireless services.

We expect the collaboration of Cavium’s small cell
silicon solution and III protocol stack expertise to enable a significant time
to market advantage for the wireless technology manufacturers in Taiwan in the
small cell market,” said Raj Singh, general manager, Wireless Broadband
Group at Cavium.


The software developed by III will help Taiwan’s
telecommunications equipment vendors successfully enter the fast-growing 4G
small cell base station market. One of the most important criteria for the
expected mass adoption of 4G small cells is the availability of fully
integrated, competitively priced system-level solutions.


“III recognizes the strong market potential for the
new generation of 4G small cell base stations that are being deployed
worldwide,” stated Kanchei Loa, research fellow/director, Smart Network
System Institute (SNSI) at III.  “Our collaboration with Cavium will
result in the creation of key software components that will allow Taiwan’s
manufacturing companies to play a leading role in feature-rich, cost effective
small cell solutions.”
