SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the digital home, will demonstrate the industry-leading capabilities of the VoLTE capable OCTEON Fusion™ "base station on a chip" at the 5th Annual Small Cells Americas conference in Dallas, Texas from December 3rd to 4th.


Small Cells Americas brings together the entire femtocell and small cells ecosystem in an open and independent forum. With the arrival of LTE across several markets, and the constantly increasing demand for data services, small cells are becoming a larger player in the radio access network planning field. With an increased number in deployments and committed operators, femtocells, picocells and small cell solutions will be the focus of the Small Cells Americas Conference.

Cavium's OCTEON Fusion processors deliver breakthrough capacity and throughput for small cell base stations, including micro, pico and enterprise femto base stations.  The OCTEON Fusion features a high performance multi-core architecture with purpose-built baseband DSP cores, LTE hardware accelerators and integrated Digital Front End (DFE) processing, delivering a true carrier-class capability. Unlike many other LTE small cell solutions, the OCTEON Fusion is specifically optimized to support both data and VoLTE applications and has been first to market for dual mode commercial deployments

At the Small Cells Americas conference, Cavium will showcase its turn-key small cell LTE eNodeB design, available today in a ready-to manufacture hardware kit that includes fully integrated, field tested L1 – L3 software.  The small cell demonstration will include over-the-air streaming of multiple HD video and audio streams along with high-throughput FTP traffic in a configuration that accommodates a high number and wide range of users for Enterprise and Service Provider applications.
