Octasic Selects Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processors for Small Cell Platform Product to Enable Innovative New Application OEMs

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MONTREAL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- Octasic Inc., a leading innovator of baseband and media processing solutions, today announced it has selected the Intel® Atom™ processor for its newest Small Cell solutions. Octasic's new SDR4000 Small Cell platform is an OEM-ready product that brings new levels of performance, power efficiency, and frequency agility. The combination of Octasic's flexibility in baseband processing and the Intel Atom processor enables a new class of base station (BTS) for indoor and outdoor applications.

Octasic's unique capabilities of both wide-reach and high-capacity baseband, coupled with power efficient Intel Atom processors, delivers a turn-key development platform. This enables applications such as: network extension for capacity and coverage, Network in a Box (NIB), emergency response, military, transportable BTS, surveillance, Internet caching and many more.

The SDR4000 allows simultaneous 2G, 3G, and 4G operation in a compact (170x170 mm) form factor that can be powered over Ethernet with passive cooling. The platform provides improvements in performance and low power consumption. The SDR4000 will be based on the Intel® Atom™ processor N2600. A single processor can run the UMTS RNC stack as well as the LTE Layer 2 and 3, supporting 100 active users. Furthermore, Intel® QuickAssist Technology provides easy-to-use software for data-plane acceleration, while supporting migration across Intel-based devices. With scalability from the Intel Atom processor to the Intel® Xeon® processor, and a flexible software programming model and tool chains, the platform is ideally suited to provide the amount of processing power required, with headroom for value added services.

The SDR4000 supports the COM Express® standard ensuring compatibility with a broad range of Intel-based Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) modules. This is combined with Octasic's comprehensive 3GPP flexiPHY software offering extended cell size coverage, and three on-board software-defined multi-band radios.

"Octasic provides very power-efficient baseband processors and platforms," said Emmanuel Gresset, VP Software Defined Radio at Octasic. "Selecting Intel processors allow us to benefit from their strong roadmap of versatile embedded processors while reducing development time for our customers. The Intel architecture is a widely supported platform from a tools and third-party applications perspective." "As Small Cell deployments ramp up, the market will need more compact and versatile basestations," said Stephen Price, General Manager of Intel's Communications Infrastructure Division. "Solutions such as those by Octasic will offer cost savings and power efficiency which will accelerate the development of both commercial and specialized applications for Small Cells." Octasic will be showcasing its line of Small Cell solutions in Booth 7H10 at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain from February 25th to 28th.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
