Aricent and NetLogic Microsystems announced today a development collaboration aimed at enabling advanced Long Term Evolution (LTE) capabilities on NetLogic Microsystems’ XLS® family of MIPS64®-based multi-core, multi-threaded processors. As a result of the joint effort, the companies intend to create a pre-optimized, fully integrated platform on which telecom equipment manufacturers can develop the latest in advanced LTE eNodeB platforms.

“In conjunction with Aricent’s advanced LTE software frameworks, our market-leading XLS family of multi-core, multi-threaded processors deliver the superior performance required by our mutual telecom system equipment customers to develop next-generation 4G/LTE eNodeB solutions,” said Mark Litvack, senior director of business development, Multi-Core Processors at NetLogic Microsystems. “The collaborative reference solution, using our best-in-class multi-core processor and Aricent’s proven LTE software frameworks, provides a significant advantage for customers looking to create highly optimized 4G infrastructure solutions faster and more efficiently.”

“Much of the challenge with LTE lies in carefully timing R&D investments to stay ahead of competition, and being ready when the market sees volume purchases by carriers,” said C.P. Murali, sr. vice president at Aricent. “Our LTE pre-packaged software and frameworks, when coupled with high-performance hardware such as NetLogic Microsystems’ XLS multi-core processors, are designed to provide a significant development jumpstart. Combined with Aricent’s lifecycle management services, these pre-optimized platforms may dramatically reduce development schedules and development costs to ensure competitive readiness and mitigate market-timing risk.”

Aricent offers equipment manufacturers comprehensive end-to-end solutions including pre-packaged software frameworks conforming to the latest 3GPP standards, along with a comprehensive set of product lifecycle services to develop feature-rich and differentiated products while gaining significant time-to-market advantage at lower R&D costs.
