TI and AirHop announce collaboration on SON software
Jun 26, 2012 (Menafn - TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --Semiconductor company Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) TXN and RAN intelligence solutions provider AirHop Communications announced on Tuesday their collaboration to integrate AirHop's eSON self-organising network (SON) software on TI's KeyStone-based small cell System-on-Chips (SoCs).
No financial details were disclosed.
According to the company, the integrated solution will allow developers using TI's TMS320TCI6612, TMS320TCI6614 and TMS320TCI6636 SoCs to design small cell base stations that will facilitate operators' ability to deploy heterogeneous networks.
The combined TI and AirHop solution helps base station vendors get to market quickly with high performance small cells that satisfy telecoms operators' requirements for HetNet applications.
TI's KeyStone architecture includes support for both TMS320C66x digital signal processor (DSP) generation cores and multiple cache coherent quad ARM Cortex-A15 clusters, for a combination of up to 32 DSP and RISC cores.
AirHop's eSON software delivers multi-cell coordination and optimisation that can be deployed in fully distributed, centralised or hybrid architectures and can be located anywhere in the core network cloud and on a variety of network edge devices.
AirHop's SON software support will be available for TI's KeyStone-based small cell solutions in the second half of 2012.
