Broadcom, Datang Mobile to Develop LTE Small Cell Solution
Datang Mobile (DTM) has selected Broadcom's dual-mode TD-SCDMA/TD-LTE system-on-chip (SoC) to develop a new family of enterprise and residential small cell solutions. Broadcom's advanced small cell SoCs provide the high-performance architecture for Datang Mobile to meet growing demand for high-performance data services in China and expand deployment of its 4G TD-LTE network.
The collaboration between DTM and Broadcom will play an important role in future TD-LTE expanding network deployments by providing a smooth migration path from 3G TDSCDMA to 4G TD-LTE.
Key features of Datang Mobile Enterprise and Residential Small Cell Solutions include support of multi-mode operation simultaneously, including TD-SCDMA , TD-LTE and WiFi, which can meet access demands of 3G/4G/WiFi users. In addition it provides smooth migration path from TD-SCDMA mode to TD-LTE and is capable of 40MHz LTE-A broadband.
Broadcom® BCM617xx Series offers concurrent support for 4G LTE 20 MHz channel with full 150 Mbps down link and 50 Mbps uplink It addresses enterprise/residential segment and supports TDD/FDD LTE, WCDMA and TD-SCDMA modes. Broadcom's BCM617xx Series for metropolitan, enterprise and residential TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE multi-mode small cell networks are currently in production. Datang Mobile expects to be shipping enterprise and residential small cell solutions based on Broadcom's dual-mode 3G TD-SCDMA/4G TD-LTE SoC in 2014.
Broadcom is currently demonstrating the latest small cell solutions at Mobile World Congress.
