Picochip, Continuous Computing and Ixia have announced that they have successfully worked together to validate Continuous Computing's Trillium Long Term Evolution and femtocell wireless protocol software solutions running on Picochip's picoArray hardware using Ixia's IxCatapult test platform. This three-way collaboration brings forth a pre-validated platform that significantly accelerates time-to-market for network equipment providers (NEPs) and enables operators and NEPs to solve the difficult challenges of LTE femto, pico and micro cell design and integration with reduced cost and development risk.

Trillium LTE wireless protocol software from Continuous Computing supports LTE femtocells and picocells (Home eNodeB) as well as the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) Mobility Management Entity (MME), Serving Gateway (SWG), Evolved Packet Data Gateway (ePDG) and other EPC elements. These standards-based Trillium LTE wireless protocols empower NEPs and user equipment (UE)manufacturers to quickly develop LTE core network and access point infrastructure to compete for early design wins in the dynamic LTE marketplace.

The Trillium Home eNodeB solution combines with hardware from Picochip in the PC960x LTE small cell solution. The PC960x is a �TCA-based end-to-end LTE system that gives NEPs and UE providers a strong head start in their product development, while also giving a smooth migration path to the development of dual (LTE and HSPA+) and even multi-mode systems in the future.

Meanwhile, the IxCatapult test system from Ixia was used to fully validate the functionality and performance of picoArray and Trillum software integration. By emulating LTE UE and generating real-world converged multiplay traffic, the IxCatapult system is able to measure download and upload throughput, latency and voice and video quality.
