Vitesse and Huawei Advance Cloud Radio Access Networks

Vitesse VeriTime Technology Enables Huawei Cloud RAN Trials With China Mobile


CAMARILLO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced that Huawei is using Vitesse's VeriTime™ technology to facilitate field Cloud-based Radio Access Network (C-RAN) trials for the world's largest mobile carrier, China Mobile. VeriTime is Vitesse's unique timing technology that delivers the industry's most accurate IEEE1588v2 timing implementation for IP Edge and Access networks.

According to Dr. Chih-Lin I, chief scientist at the China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) in Beijing, C-RAN technology is expected to significantly reduce capex and opex for service providers looking to achieve high capacity, power-efficient and cost-effective wireless networks. Other C-RAN benefits demonstrated by the CMRI studies include lower energy consumption, simpler system rollout, and superior service levels to users. As in 4G/LTE mobile backhaul networks, highly accurate timing synchronization is crucial to the stability and proper operation of C-RAN networks.

"The frequency and phase accuracy requirements for C-RAN are very stringent," said Uday Mudoi, product marketing director at Vitesse. "Vitesse specifically designed VeriTime to meet the exacting requirements of next-generation mobile backhaul Edge and Access broadband networks. We will continue to work with industry leaders such as Huawei and China Mobile to bring advanced network architectures like C-RAN to fruition."
