Taiwan's Institute For Information Industry (III) Selects Cavium OCTEON Fusion™ As Platform SoC For Delivering Out-of-the-Box 4G Small Cell Solutions For Taiwan OEMs And ODMs

SAN JOSE, Calif. and TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the digital home, and the Institute for Information Industry (III) of Taiwan, a non-governmental organization that supports the development of the nation's information industry, today announced an engagement that will lead to the availability of a total out-of the-box hardware and software solution for Taiwan's wireless systems vendors.

Using Cavium's OCTEON Fusion small cell "base station on a chip" hardware platform and leveraging the software development environment available for the industry-leading OCTEON processor family, III will deliver key software components including a MAC (L2/L3) layer, self organizing networks (SON) and remote resource management (RRM) applications, and other features expected by providers of 3G and 4G wireless services.  The software developed by III will help Taiwan's telecommunications equipment vendors successfully enter the fast-growing 4G small cell base station market.

"III recognizes the strong market potential for the new generation of 4G small cell base stations that are being deployed worldwide," stated Kanchei Loa, research fellow/director, Smart Network System Institute (SNSI) at III.  "Our collaboration with Cavium will result in the creation of key software components that will allow Taiwan's manufacturing companies to play a leading role in feature-rich, cost effective small cell solutions."

"Cavium is leveraging our strong position in the macro base station market to deliver compelling OCTEON Fusion based solutions for the emerging high growth small cell market," said Raj Singh, general manager, Wireless Broadband Group at Cavium.  "One of the most important criteria for the expected mass adoption of 4G small cells is the availability of fully integrated, competitively priced system-level solutions.  We expect the collaboration of Cavium's small cell silicon solution and III protocol stack expertise to enable a significant time to market advantage for the wireless technology manufacturers in Taiwan in the small cell market."
