Public Wireless’ Venice Outdoor Multi-RAN products will operate based on the QorIQ Qonverge base station on-chip technology, and are slated to let OEMs quickly develop highly efficient and compact small cell base stations that cater to increasing wireless data rates and smart mobile device usage.
The highly integrated QorIQ Qonverge platform combines Freescale’s Power Architecture cores and high-performance StarCore DSPs with proven application accelerators for packet and baseband processing, security and more.
Freescale explained that QorIQ Qonverge processors address the diverse processing needs of connected, industrial nodes by combining a DSP with a network processor and gives designers the ability to reduce chip count, board space and power consumption through the use of this SoC.
QorIQ Qonverge products are based on a common architecture and a single SoC features communications processing, digital signal processing and wireless acceleration technologies, and are available in various configurations that suit a range of macrocell base stations.
Using the simultaneous 3G and LTE (News - Alert) transmission capabilities of QorIQ Qonverge processors, Public Wireless’ single and multi-mode small cell offerings are well suited to help transform the future of wireless infrastructure.
“This collaboration enables outstanding outdoor small cell RAN solutions with specialized functionality at the edge of the network for commercial, private, and military networks,” said Murat Erkam, vice president of Product Management for Public Wireless. “Examples include support for multiple air-interface protocols, wireless backhaul, video optimization, localized RNC/EPC functionality, content caching and several other applications.”
‘ip.access’ employed Freescale’s QorIQ Qonverge small cell service this past February to support its LTE products.
