SAN DIEGO -- Continuous Computing(r), the globalprovider of hardware and software solutions that address the mobilebroadband capacity challenge, today announced the general availabilityof its upgraded Trillium(r) Long Term Evolution (LTE) eNodeB protocolsoftware which now includes support for the Time Division Duplex (TDD)variant of LTE, known as TD-LTE. Concurrently, the company is nowoffering its Trillium Advanced LTE Media Access Control (MAC) Schedulerssuite, a set of six optimized schedulers, as well as an upgrade to theMAC scheduler interface, which helps network equipment providers (NEPs)to meet growing scalability requirements by creating their own schedulerimplementations and running MAC and the MAC scheduler as independentexecution modules. By complementing its Frequency Division Duplex (FDD)LTE stacks with TDD support, Continuous Computing has expanded marketopportunities for NEPs while facilitating WiMAX-to-LTE productevolution.

Amidst growing support for both the TDD and FDD variants of LTE, TD-LTEenables WiMAX companies which are adding LTE to their portfolios tospeed up their development. Unlike in the 3G market where TDD variantsof the WCDMA standard are being deployed only in certain regions, TD-LTEis expected to have broad applicability due to the availability ofunpaired spectrum around the globe. While FDD requires paired spectrum(one carrier for downlink and one for uplink), TDD employs unpaired orshared spectrum using time slots to manage interference.

"Continuous Computing's off-the-shelf Trillium TD-LTE solution gaveFiberHome the flexibility to focus on other aspects of ourimplementation," Mr. Zhu Yuxia, General Manager of Beijing NorthernFiberHome. "The quality and portability that Trillium software offersallowed us to greatly improve our time-to-market."
