OCTEON FusionÂ® Family, the industryâ€™s most powerful, small cell â€œBase Station-on-a-chipâ€? family are specifically designed for LTE & 3G multi-mode small cell base stations, including picocell and micro base stations. OCTEON Fusion processors combine OCTEONâ€™s widely successful multi-core architecture along with purpose-built Baseband DSP cores, extensive LTE/3G hardware accelerators and digital front end (DFE) features into a single chip, slashing the BOM cost and power envelope of small cell base stations.
This product family consists of multiple SoCs (system-on-a-chip) that enable small cells ranging from 32 users to 300+ users and up to dual 20MHz carriers, delivering industry-leading scalability. OCTEON Fusion is accompanied by FusionStackâ„¢ software, a comprehensive, interoperability tested (IOT), carrier-class L1 to L3 software suite for rapid time to market. OCTEON Fusion CPU cores are fully compatible with OCTEON multi-core processors enabling TEMs to seamlessly leverage their Cavium OCTEON-based macrocell L2-L7 software into OCTEON Fusion based small cell designs.
