Ethernity Networks has started receiving orders for its ENET Flow Processor FPGA systems-on-chip (SoCs) by Tarana Wireless, a wireless broadband solution manufacturer.
Ethernity FPGA SoCs provide IP networking functionality, including critical traffic management features, for Tarana’s Gigabit1 (G1) product.
Ethernity has worked with Tarana and supported its development efforts, including multiple field trials, in bringing this innovative fixed mobile access product to mass adoption.
Tarana is fulfilling orders from service providers for deployments of G1, requiring supply of 5,000 units of Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processor over the next 12 months. Further growth is expected in 2022.
Tarana has developed its radio access network technology, including custom silicon for radio frequency and digital signal processing, to address the significant shortcomings of prior attempts at fixed wireless using technology repurposed from other applications (i.e. indoor Wi-Fi and mobile cellular).
G1 can provide fiber-class service from installations on existing cellular tower assets in non-line-of-sight conditions – and in unlicensed spectrum – with performance and network economics 3x better than 5G for fixed broadband.
Ethernity has provided Tarana its silicon-tuned software, which, thanks to the efficiency of the ENET Flow Processor design, fits into low-cost FPGAs. Working with Tarana’s radio technology in its tower-installed base nodes, the ENET Flow Processor provides advanced networking functions, traffic control, and management for up to 512 homes per ENET SoC.
“Tarana is progressing with our ENET Flow Processor FPGA, through multiple field trials and now toward mass deployment of their product,” said David Levi, CEO of Ethernity Networks.
“Our collaboration with the Ethernity team has certainly made a significant contribution to our end-to-end system design,” said Rakesh Tiwari, Tarana’s VP of Product Management.
