CommAgility and Aricent Collaborate to Create LTE Macro eNodeB Solutions for Network Equipment Providers

LOUGHBOROUGH, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

CommAgility’s LTE PHY software licensed for pre-integration with Aricent LTE Layer 3, Layer 2 Software and BBU design

CommAgility, a Wireless Telecom Group company (NYSE American: WTT), announces that it has been chosen by Aricent, a global design and engineering company, as a partner to develop LTE eNodeB solutions for Network Equipment Providers (NEPs). The LTE solutions developed under the partnership will consist of software intellectual property (IP) and services. These solutions will mean that NEPs can significantly reduce their development costs and mitigate risks to launch LTE eNodeB products to market faster.

Aricent has leveraged software frameworks of Layer 3 and Layer 2 protocol stack and licensed CommAgility’s PHY software, which delivers a complete LTE Physical Layer for macro cells. The software is designed on Texas Instruments’ KeyStone II System on Chips (SoCs), which provide a powerful processing platform. Aricent will also be taking advantage of CommAgility’s world-class support, and its ability to customize software for specific applications.

N. Mohan Rangan, Chief Engineering Officer at Aricent, said: “CommAgility is one of the leading PHY software developers for Texas Instruments SoCs, backed up by expert support and worldwide presence. With CommAgility as eco-system partner for PHY software on the TI platform, we have been able to create pre-integrated LTE eNodeB solutions that exceed the requirements of network equipment manufacturers, and we look forward to creating pre-integrated SoC based 5G solution.”

Edward Young, Vice President and General Manager at CommAgility, said: “With more than 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, Aricent provides a broad range of industry-leading services, capabilities and software frameworks for network equipment manufacturers, which makes them unique. We are delighted to work with them on new 4G and 5G solutions.”

SmallCellPHY is available in two variants – as a Reference Chain, and a version for Texas Instruments’ small cell SoCs. Compliant with 3GPP standards, it is entirely software-defined, to increase flexibility and scalability. SmallCellPHY is optimized for low memory, processing power, and power consumption, and provides innovative algorithms such as advanced scheduling.
