BERLIN and SAN DIEGO and BATH, U.K. -- Continuous Computing®, the only company deploying uniquely architected systems comprised of telecom platforms and Trillium® software, and picoChip, the leading supplier of femtocell silicon, today announced that they will collaborate to produce a comprehensive Long Term Evolution (LTE) femtocell and picocell reference implementation. The results of the joint work will enable Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) to quickly get to market with a variety of small form factor LTE products, including femtocell and picocell base stations. Smaller eNodeB products, such as those based on the MicroTCA form factor, are expected to be important for LTE deployments worldwide. In a separate announcement made today, Continuous Computing also disclosed that its Trillium LTE software now supports the latest March 2009 3GPP E-UTRA LTE specifications.
Executives from picoChip and Continuous Computing believe that their memorandum of understanding, details of which were disclosed at the LTE World Summit in Berlin, is the industry’s first alliance for LTE femtocells / picocells which extends from a hardware reference design and physical layer implementation (PHY) all the way up through Layer 2 and Layer 3 LTE protocols.
In a separate release:
BERLIN and SAN DIEGO -- Continuous Computing®, the only company deploying uniquely architected systems comprised of telecom platforms and Trillium® software, today announced from the LTE World Summit 2009, held in Berlin, Germany from May 18-20, that its recently updated Trillium Long Term Evolution (LTE) software suite supports the 3rd Generation Partnership Project’s (3GPP) March 2009 specifications known as 3GPP E-UTRA (LTE). In a separate announcement made today, Continuous Computing also disclosed that it has teamed with picoChip to jointly produce a comprehensive LTE femtocell hardware-software reference implementation designed to accelerate network equipment providers’ LTE product development timelines.
First launched in September 2008, Continuous Computing’s newly updated Trillium LTE software suite now includes version 2.1 of the Trillium S1AP protocol, which provides the interface between the eNodeB (LTE base station) and the Mobility Management Entity (MME). Trillium S1AP joins the rest of the Trillium LTE protocols including Diameter, GTP, eGTP, LTE MAC, LTE PDCP, LTE RLC, LTE RRC, and X2AP to provide network equipment providers (NEPs) with a comprehensive range of LTE-optimized protocol stacks for infrastructure supporting Home eNodeBs (LTE femtocells) all the way through to the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), including MME, Serving Gateway (SWG), and Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG), among others. Trillium LTE protocols are available now and all support the March 2009 3GPP E-UTRA (LTE) specification.
