LSI Announces Next-Gen Processor for Wireless Backhaul

LSI Corporation unveiled its next-generation link communication processor (LCP) for multiservice applications
such as wireline access network, 2.5G/3G and 4G/LTE wireless access, and pseudowire emulation (PWE) applications.

The new LCP is a significant addition to the LSI(TM) family of multiservice processors and a key part of the LSI asymmetric multicore processor portfolio that enables any-to-any communications in wireless infrastructure.
It supports all major protocols, enabling wireless, mobile backhaul, multiservice, router and broadband access traffic to be easily and efficiently migrated from current-generation, time-division multiplexing (TDM) networks to next-generation Ethernet and MPLS networks at much lower cost and risk than previous solutions.

LSI said its new LCP performs multiprotocol processing at wire speed using dedicated, on-chip programmable cores. It contains multicore ARM processors for managing data plane applications, and running customer-specific application code. Connectivity is provided by integrated Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, enabling direct wide area network (WAN) uplinks. In addition, the LCP scales across a broad range of network speeds, from T1/E1 to STM-1/OC-3, which allows networking OEMs to leverage a single development effort across all major services and performance levels.

"The complex mix of protocols and applications that run on today's advanced networks require highly integrated, multicore SoCs with proven software," said Shane Gunning, multiservice marketing director, Networking Components Division, LSI. "Our latest-generation LCP provides OEMs with a single, scalable, highly efficient platform that enables them to build multiservice base stations and controllers that span 2G, 3G and 4G networks."http://www.lsi.com
