LSI Delivers End-to-End Wireless Infrastructure Processor Portfolio

Comprehensive set of asymmetric multicore solutions offers a single platform for development of next-generation mobile networks

LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) – (Virtual Press Office) –  today announced that it has updated its silicon portfolio of media, advanced communications, content processing, and link communication processing solutions for next-generation mobile networks.

The entire portfolio is now based on a unified asymmetric multicore architecture, making LSI the industry’s first to offer a cost-effective single platform for development of an end-to-end multi-radio wireless infrastructure, and establishing the foundation for development of the industry’s first scalable wireless base station on a chip (BSoC).

“Last year, we developed a strategy to create a family of communications products based on a unified architecture that would serve as a cornerstone for continuous improvements in performance, lower power and cost,” said Charlie Kawwas, vice president, Marketing, Networking Components Division, LSI. “This vision is now a reality, and LSI has become the premiere provider of end-to-end solutions for wireless systems developers.”

As part of the new portfolio, LSI has announced three next-generation, asymmetric multicore solutions developed on a unified architecture:

• The Axxia™ Communication Processor family, featuring groundbreaking LSI Virtual Pipeline™ message-passing technology and award-winning Tarari® deep packet inspection technology

• StarPro® SP2704 and SP2716 media and baseband processors, which can support more than 3,000 simultaneous gateway channels per device, enabling a single multi-radio access network

• A new link communication processor (LCP) that allows network traffic to be easily and efficiently migrated from existing TDM networks to next-generation Ethernet and IP networks

“Network equipment providers must develop new products with 5 to 15 times the performance of existing systems to address the exponential growth in broadband traffic,” said Mike Langlois, Telecom General Manager at Wind River. “The LSI Axxia Communication Processor is an innovative solution for coping with exponential traffic growth. When optimized with Wind River’s VxWorks, carrier-grade Linux platforms and comprehensive family of tools, the end result is a turnkey hardware and software platform that network equipment providers can use to design, optimize and test powerful new wireless access and edge network elements.”

LSI is showcasing its wireless infrastructure for mobile access, transport, gateway, and data center applications in stand AV64 at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 15 to 18. The LSI stand is located in the Avenue Pavilion near Hall 8 of the exhibition.

As part of a comprehensive Multicore Done Right™ approach, the new LSI portfolio provides best-in-class solutions for wireless infrastructure. Additional information on all LSI multicore solutions for wireless infrastructure can be found at:
