PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Aricent(TM), a global innovation, technology and services company focused exclusively on communications, today announced that the company will create a complete Long Term Evolution (LTE) eNodeB reference solution that includes Layer 1 (PHY) and Layer 2 protocol stacks based on the next-generation Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor for LTE base station applications.

Intel(R) architecture provides the Aricent solution performance benefits and simplifies the OEM development of eNodeB solutions. The combination of advanced integrated software on Intel architecture provides high-performance processing, high-speed packet processing, and security capabilities on a single energy efficient platform. Network equipment providers can use the integrated platform to rapidly develop new equipment for next generation LTE wireless networks.

"This solution reflects our continued emphasis and investment in growing our ecosystem of technology leaders in the LTE space," explained Ajeet Velankar, business development director at Aricent. "Intel's semiconductor expertise combined with Aricent's software solution simplifies development complexity and risk for customers, allowing them to focus on their core competencies and improve their competitive position in future design decisions."

"Aricent has invested heavily in Long Term Evolution technology and by running it on Intel's advance hardware architecture, customers will benefit from a highly integrated, optimized LTE solution," said Rose Schooler, general manager, Performance Processor Division, Intel.

Aricent LTE eNodeB Framework (eNBF) is a leading software solution for LTE eNodeB nodes that combines Layer 1, 2 and 3 components. The software enables complete LTE Uu functionality of the Layer 1 (DAP-PHY) processing, Layer 2 (MAC, RLC and PDCP), Layer 3 (RRC, Cell control, Call control) and S1AP, GTPu and SCTP. This framework accelerates and simplifies development of a carrier deployable solution. Aricent eNBF harnesses the power of Intel(R) technology to integrate signal processing, packet processing and security capabilities, in addition to Macro
