Axxia 3400 processors with latest release of software used in fast-growing small
cell base station applications
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 10, 2013 –LSI Corporation (NASDAQ: LSI)
today announced the Axxia® Mobile Broadband Solution, designed to meet
the growing performance, integration and scalability demands of unified, multi-standard
radio access networks in 4G/LTE wireless deployments. The new solution enhances
the Axxia 3400 platform, allowing effective scaling across the needs of traditional
macro base stations to small cell base stations. The Axxia 3400 platform is used
in small cells that will be deployed by Verizon Wireless later this year and allows
mobile network providers to add capacity in dense urban areas with high traffic
while also providing best-in-class user experience including real-time services
and mobile video.
The Axxia Mobile Broadband Solution combines the Axxia communication processor family
with a suite of configurable software components and development tools for 3G and
4G/LTE protocol processing applications. The Axxia platform reduces OEM development
investment while ensuring a highly interoperable and more easily serviced heterogeneous
“With the incredible growth of mobile broadband traffic, next-generation base stations
require scalability, and providers need the ability to quickly densify network coverage
in high traffic areas through the addition of small cells,” said Noy Kucuk, vice
president of marketing, Networking Solutions Group, LSI. “Axxia integrated hardware
and software is becoming the product of choice for manufacturers looking to provide
the scalability and flexibility needed for rapid network buildouts.”
The Axxia Mobile Broadband Solution software offers a number of benefits to network
service providers including:
- Complete, production-ready software for accelerating transport and backhaul applications
over LTE and WCDMA networks.
- Application development kit that supports Ethernet switching, OA&M, IPv4/IPv6,
IPSEC, IEEE1588v2 PTP, GTP-u and Quality of Service features.
- Integrated system application development environment including compiler, simulator,
debugger and analysis tools that allows for the addition of differentiating features.
- Common software/hardware platform that scales across all levels of base station
applications, reducing costs of development and interoperability testing.
“The small cell base station market is just at the beginning of an exciting growth
curve as carriers race to keep up with the staggering growth of mobile devices and
applications,” said Abhi Dugar, research manager, IDC. “To meet the diverse needs
of the devices and applications, mobile infrastructure platforms require flexible,
software customizable communications processor solutions that can support a range
of deployment scenarios, performance requirements, and protocols across the entire
