NetLogic Microsystems Inc. disclosed that its multicore, multithreaded processors have been designed into multiple equipment deployed in NTT Docomo's commercial LTE mobile network in Japan.

Docomo announced on June 8 that it has begun verification of its new commercial mobile network system based on the LTE protocol in the Tokyo area, and is expected to enter full-scale launch of the extra-high-speed LTE commercial service in December.

Docomo's 2GHz network system comprises dual-mode W-CDMA and LTE base stations, LTE core network equipment and LTE-enabled mobile devices. Compatibility with W-CDMA will enable seamless handover for devices as they move between LTE and W-CDMA service areas in the network. As the leading mobile wireless operator in Japan, Docomo expects to confirm 5MHz-bandwidth throughput for 37.5Mbit/s downlinks and 12.5Mbit/s uplinks, followed by 10MHz-bandwidth throughput for maximum 75Mbits downlinks and 25Mbit/s uplinks in selected test areas.

"We congratulate NTT Docomo on the launch of the LTE network in Tokyo, and are excited to recognize the adoption of our industry-leading multicore processors in Japan's next-generation mobile infrastructure," said Behrooz Abdi, executive VP and general manager at NetLogic. "Our high performance multithreaded architecture has uniquely positioned us as a leader in intelligent LTE silicon solutions, and we are glad to see our products being designed into virtually every node of the LTE mobile infrastructure at multiple carriers worldwide."
