Texas Instruments Inc. and Sub10 Systems have teamed up to deliver what they say is a differentiated and future-proof backhaul solution for small cell base stations. By using TI's KeyStone-based TMS320C6678 multi-core DSPs in its Liberator V100, Sub10 Systems promises to more effectively and rapidly meet the operators' challenges of improving resilience in hostile radio conditions.

Geared for mobile operators looking to increase network coverage and capacity, Sub10 Systems' Liberator V100 plays a vital role in the backhaul of mobile networks, connecting mobile voice and data traffic from the cell site to the high-speed core network, said the firm. The Liberator V100 includes 'Snapback', a patent-pending innovation from Sub10 Systems, enhancing industry standard SyncE support and IEEE 1588 timing protocols to ensure superior synchronisation reliability and speed. TI's C6678 multi-core DSPs allow Sub10 Systems' backhaul solution to re-sync quickly, if a connection is lost, at an order of magnitude faster than other competing solutions in the backhaul market, indicated the company.

TI's C6678 DSPs offer Sub10 Systems access to devices that are high performance while still being power and space efficient. The unique strengths of the C6678 DSPs help Sub10 Systems meet the needs of the industry, including developing backhaul solutions small enough to fit on outside objects such as lamp posts, and maintaining power management. In addition, the C6678 DSP leverages TI's scalable KeyStone multi-core architecture, bringing the most comprehensive portfolio of software and complementary support devices to Sub10 Systems. This enables Sub10 Systems to save time, resources and budget to focus on differentiating their products.

The Liberator V100 is available.
