Cavium's OCTEON Fusion™ To Power SK Telecom's Mass Deployment Of Small Cell LTE Infrastructure

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 1, 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, today announced that its OCTEON Fusion™ platform will be powering the 4G/LTE small cell deployment for SK Telecom, (NYSE: SKM), the largest mobile service provider in Korea. This collaboration between SK Telecom and Cavium extends from the initial development phase into the broad mass market deployment in 2012.

Rapid adoption of smartphones, tablets and media rich wireless devices, coupled with social networking, IP video and internet applications are driving the doubling of mobile data traffic every year.  Globally, mobile operators such as SK Telecom are prioritizing swift rollout of LTE small cell to deliver the data bandwidth required for these applications to their large subscriber bases. Carriers can rapidly alleviate spectrum and capacity limitations, and expand their existing LTE macro cell based networks with an overlay of small cells using Cavium's OCTEON Fusion "base station on a chip" hardware and software platform. Effective deployment of such a large and distributed overlay radio access network requires small cell base stations to be interoperable with the existing macro and core networks, compact, energy efficient and reliable. Additionally, they need to offer differentiating capabilities such as concurrent support of WLAN, QoS, interference mitigation and Self-Optimizing Networks (SON). The OCTEON Fusion Platform optimally addresses all these requirements in a low-cost and low-power profile.

"Cavium's Fusion processor platform provides a market-leading LTE small cell solution with proven carrier grade capabilities for large multiuser small cells," stated Kang Jong-Ryeol, Head of Network Technology R&D Center of SK Telecom.  "We look forward to aggressively expanding both our subscriber base and our high bandwidth data services with the roll out of cost-effective, feature-rich small cell solutions based on the OCTEON Fusion platform".

"SK Telecom has been at the forefront of validating and deploying advanced technologies in the service provider market. SK Telecom is now again demonstrating its leadership in world's first mass deployment of LTE small cell networks," said YJ Kim, General Manager, Infrastructure Product Group, Cavium.  "We are pleased that SK Telecom has selected our OCTEON Fusion as the platform of choice to deploy for their small cell LTE infrastructure. End to End interoperability (IOT) is critical for service provider deployments, and our focus on this area along with our strategic partner CS Corporation ( www.cs-holdings.com), is enabling the quick acceptance of our small cell solution by carriers and OEMs".

The OCTEON Fusion processors combine OCTEON's proven and scalable L2-L7 multi-core technology, along with purpose-built, highly programmable L1 baseband DSP cores and extensive 3G/4G hardware accelerators, and front end (DFE) functionality in a single chip. These components are connected through a high performance interconnect to enable low-latency data processing between protocol layers. The OCTEON Fusion family consists of two software compatible product lines: CNF71XX and CNF72XX, which deliver industry leading performance for small cell base stations supporting from 32 to 300+ users on both LTE and 3G platforms. The Fusion platform is also designed to support a range of wireless and wired backhaul technologies including Wireless LAN, Microwave, Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber. The OCTEON Fusion CNF71XX, Fusion Stack™ and SDK have been sampling since April 2012.
