BEIJING and JERUSALEM, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
ASOCS Ltd, a Silicon IP provider of Software Defined Radio solutions and CMRI, Research Institute of CMCC Ltd. (NYSE: CHL; HKEx: 0941), the world's largest Mobile Operator, announced today the signing of a strategic memorandum of understanding for the joint development, commercialization, testing and deployment of large-scale baseband processing units for China Mobile's next generation Cloud-RAN network.
Earlier trials undertaken by leading mobile operators, identified the bottleneck of Centralized Base-band Units ("BBU"), consisting of general purpose CPU ("CPU") to perform massive and concurrent baseband calculations in cost and power efficient manner. The solution was to introduce significant offloading capabilities of such calculations with highly specialized Modem Processing Units ("MPU").
Today there is a growing understanding in the industry that such MPU should support a wide range of system partitioning, topologies and real time system performance, including large scale Collaborative Multi-point communications ("CoMP") and massive MIMO.
Moreover, since communication algorithms are evolving over time, and since the C-RAN concept provisions on-the-fly reconfiguration of the BBU to support a variety of mobile communication standards, an MPU solution which is re-configurable at runtime has a great advantage over traditional hard-wired designs.
ASOCS Software Defined Radio ("SDR") based ModemX architecture is ideally positioned for this task, allowing for optimal CPU-MPU partitioning while offering cost- and power-efficient solution, coupled with massive processing capacity.
"C-RAN is the green radio access network initiated by China Mobile with the aim of large capacity, low cost and high power efficiency," said Dr. Chihlin I, chief scientist of CMRI. "We believe that by collaborating with ASOCS, Network Equipment Vendors will be able to accelerate and optimize their development of high capacity Cloud Ran systems. The goal of CMRI is to realize C-RAN by closely co-operating with key stakeholders in the industry."
"ASOCS is pleased to take part in the development of a crucial element in the C-RAN overall solution by closely collaborating with CMRI," said Gilad Garon, CEO and Founder of ASOCS. "ASOCS Silicon IP Modem Processing Unit (MPU), implemented on our Software Defined Radio platform is ideally suited for massive processing of baseband pool of any current and future cellular technology and is yet more proof of ASOCS' long-term strategy based on its groundbreaking ModemX technology," he added.
ASOCS develops and licenses plurality of software-defined modems for mobile, wireless and broadband communication, based on its Heterogeneous Many core array - ModemX is suitable for all current and future modem requirements. ASOCS CR2100 Modem Processing Unit (MPU) Silicon IP enables the highest possible capacity of Base-band Unit for C-RAN, as well as other wireless infrastructure cells from small to macro and beyond. ASOCS solutions cover a variety of mobile solutions, both for terminals and mobile network infrastructure, as well as other wireless and broadband standards.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
