LSI Adopts Multicore ARM for Mobile Infrastructure Processing

LSI will leverage ARM processor core for the first time in its Axxia platform for next-generation wireless infrastructure.

The Axxia solutions will combine the latest ARM Cortex A-15 processors cores with LSI hardware accelerators, resulting in a system on a chip uniquely suited to building intelligent, heterogeneous networks. Key points:

  • Energy-efficient, low-power multicore processors for base stations and wireless infrastructure.

  • Scalable performance to contend with massive data growth driven by smartphones, tablets and cloud-based services.

  • Embedded intelligence to identify traffic, recognize applications and deliver the right content at the right time, enabling real-time services including mobile video.

  • Third-party tools and support through the ARM community and LSI networking ecosystem.

“Consumers worldwide have an insatiable appetite for mobile broadband services. Operators need intelligent solutions to deliver exponentially growing traffic without exponentially growing their costs and power consumption,�? said Jim Anderson, senior vice president and general manager, Networking Components Division, LSI. “With solutions ranging from dual core to 16 or more cores, the Axxia wireless platform delivers the intelligence and performance to accelerate mobile networks from small cells to macro base stations.�?
