SAN DIEGO -- Continuous Computing®, the only company deploying uniquely architected systems comprised of telecom platforms and Trillium® software, today announced its collaboration with Cavium Networks (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, wireless, and storage applications. The joint effort will provide Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) with a combined high-performance solution that can support the complete range of Long Term Evolution (LTE) network elements, from LTE Base Stations (eNodeBs) to Evolved Packet Core (EPC) devices, including Mobility Management Entity (MME), Serving Gateway (SGW), Packet Data Network (PDN) Gateway, and Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG).

The combination of Continuous Computing's Trillium LTE software and Cavium's OCTEON multi-core processor family, which boasts a 16-core MIPS64 architecture with market-leading performance and advanced hardware acceleration, allows the companies to offer NEPs immediate solutions that support high-performance LTE networks. Available now, this powerful combination from Continuous Computing and Cavium Networks solves critical performance issues for NEPs as well as reduces time to market, project risk, and overall cost and complexity.

Continuous Computing's Trillium LTE software - including Diameter, S1-AP, eGTP, GTP, MAC, PDCP, RLC, RRC, and X2-AP - supports LTE Femtocells, macro/pico LTE base stations, and each of the network elements within the EPC. All Trillium LTE protocols are compliant with the latest 3GPP-defined LTE specifications and are multi-threaded for optimized performance on multi-core processors. Trillium LTE software also includes reference applications for relevant LTE interfaces such as LTE-Uu, S1, S5, S6, S7, S10, X2, etc.

Since announcing general availability of Trillium LTE software in September 2008, Continuous Computing has secured four LTE design wins with Tier 1, 2, and 3 NEPs located in North America and Japan. Similarly, Cavium has secured LTE design wins at three of the top five Tier 1 NEPs worldwide using its OCTEON processors. Because wireless operators worldwide have established ambitious goals for rolling out LTE services, it is important that NEPs have early access to LTE technology solutions from companies like Continuous Computing and Cavium.

"The value-add of tight software and silicon integration for our NEP customer base seeking an immediate end-to-end LTE solution is a key differentiator behind our partnership with Cavium Networks," said Manish Singh, vice president of product line management at Continuous Computing. "The combined solution will service the entire suite of LTE network equipment - access, edge, and core - and validates our technology differentiators and continued leadership in the LTE market."
