Next-generation Series Built on More than Two Million Residential and Enterprise Small Cell Deployments with Broadcom Technology

IRVINE, Calif., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

News Highlights:

  • Carrier-proven 3G and 4G/LTE devices deliver lowest power and cost for small cell applications
  • New baseband SoCs integrate residential multi-mode and triple-mode 3G, 4G and LTE support
  • Higher processing-power improves mobile user experience with 2x capacity, faster data speeds
  • New RFIC adds low-power and cost-effective LTE, 3G and sniffing support for Broadcom® multimode small cell baseband devices

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced its next-generation devices for residential, enterprise and outdoor small cell networks. The BCM61735, BCM61755 and BCM61765 system-on-a-chip (SoC) devices build on the success of Broadcom's residential and enterprise small cell products, which have been deployed in more than two million small cells to date. For more news, visit Broadcom's Newsroom.

Broadcom's third generation low-power small cell baseband processors double the capacity for operators and carriers to offload data traffic from increasingly congested 3G, 4G/LTE mobile and Wi-Fi (802.11n and 802.11ac) networks. The enhanced portfolio delivers data rates up to 300 megabits per second (Mbps), providing the highest quality of service for smartphone and tablet users seeking better Internet connections, uninterrupted streaming video and improved call coverage, while helping operators effectively manage spectrum assets. Broadcom's complete small cell platform also includes support for Wi-Fi offload, which complements small cell technologies to further assist operators in managing growing mobile traffic, through Broadcom's dual-band concurrent 802.11n and 801.11ac Wi-Fi technologies.

Broadcom's BCM61735 is optimized for low cost and bill-of-material, lowest power and small footprint required by residential CPE markets.  When combined with Broadcom Wi-Fi, DSL, cable and PON residential gateway products, the BCM61735 provides a complete multi-radio access technology (RAT) residential solution. Broadcom's BCM61755 and BCM61765 provide advanced enterprise and venue features, including RF digital front end (DFE), multi-core processors, increased user count, range and mobility and carrier aggregation, along with carrier Wi-Fi and Power-over-Ethernet compliance.

"Our new generation of residential and triple-mode enterprise baseband processors for small cells provides global carriers with a powerful solution as 3G technology matures and global operators prepare to transition to 4G/LTE mobile networks," said Greg Fischer, Broadcom Vice President and General Manager for Broadband Carrier Access. "Building on more than two million field deployments of our small cell technology, Broadcom's new BCM617x5 SoCs allow carriers to meet consumer demand for a consistently high quality, high performance mobile experience."

The BCM61735, BCM61755 and BCM71765 enable carriers and operators to deliver improved connectivity for their enterprise and metropolitan subscribers by optimizing spectrum efficiency for an overall increase in network capacity, improved coverage and higher data rates. Broadcom's BCM617x5 small cell series also ensure connectivity for all mobile network access modes (3G, 4G/LTE and Wi-Fi) and configuration bands (licensed and unlicensed). New support for 20+20 MHz carrier aggregation, which makes more efficient use of available but often fragmented spectrum, is included in the BCM71765 to address the wider transmission requirements of LTE networks.

Today's launch also includes Broadcom's new 3G/ 4G LTE RF transceiver, the BCM61297. The very low-power consuming device combines with Broadcom's small cell SoCs to reduce bill-of-material and better manage small cell interference on all carrier aggregation band combinations approved by 3GPP, resulting in seamless service to mobile subscribers. Additional support for GSM/UMTS/LTE sniffing capabilities for advanced self-organizing networks (SON) and timing algorithms further reduces operator costs to upgrade site performance and to enhance overall mobile network capacity.

Key Features of the BCM617x5 Series

  • Includes 3G and 4G/LTE small cell transceiver
  • Supports multiple networks and configurations, including:
    • 3G TDSCDMA and WCDMA
    • LTE in frequency division duplexing (FDD) and time division duplexing (TDD)
    • Carrier WLAN with dedicated WLAN processor core
    • China ZUC security algorithm
  • Combines PCI-Express and driver integration for Broadcom Wi-Fi solutions, enabling multimode access points and addition of carrier Wi-Fi to cellular solutions
  • Full support for Broadcom RF cellular devices and dual-band concurrent 802.11n and 801.11ac Wi-Fi technologies, including the BCM43460 and BCM43520
  • Software- and pin-compatible with existing BCM617xx series
  • Integrates power-reducing crest-factor reduction (CFR) and envelope tracking for RF
  • Embedded advanced DFE algorithms increase spectrum efficiency while minimizing overall system power consumption

Broadcom's BCM61735 for residential small cells, BCM61755 for enterprise small cells and BCM61765 for high capacity/outdoor metrocells are currently sampling.
