China Unicom Works with Cavium on ARM-based Network Gear

Cavium announced an agreement with China Unicom to accelerate the design and development of Virtualized BBUs based on Cavium's ThunderX workload optimized data server processors, which are built on ARM architecture. In addition, Cavium has joined the China Unicom CORD Industry Alliance and will drive adoption of open source architecture and technologies in China together with China Unicom.

The companies said they plan to work together on new innovative fronthaul solutions, system architecture and vBBU performance and deployment. This collaboration allows Cavium to align with China Unicom's commercial networks technology development and innovation, research feasibility of Next Generation Virtualized Wireless Access Network, perform lab and field testing, evaluate results, drive deployment of developed technologies into commercial network, carry out lab and field performance test and assessment, accelerate pilot and application of new technical innovations in real-world networks.

"We are very pleased to collaborate with China Unicom in this critical area. As network capacity continues to be stretched and the user demands continue to grow the industry is faced with significant challenges which cannot be solved by traditional means," said Raj Singh General Manager of the Wireless Broadband Group at Cavium. "The use of advanced general purpose hardware such as Cavium's ThunderX workload optimized data severs allows us to provide a highly scalable virtualized solution for these requirements."
