KT Collaborates with Radisys to Deliver Intel®-based Small Cell Solutions across Its LTE WARP+ Network

KT Corporation today announced its next-generation small cell solutions targeted at the migration of LTE WARP to WARP+ for both Network and Service Evolution. The Intel® Transcede™ SoC platform supported by Radisys’ LTE TOTALeNodeB™ small cell software serves as the foundation for all of KT’s small cell solutions, from residential to enterprise and outdoor picocells, with enterprise deployments underway.

“Radisys and Intel Corporation ('Intel') have already delivered a solution for our enterprise small cell deployments, making it an easy decision to turn to them again as we move to leveraging small cells across our entire network,” said Yonggyoo Lee, Vice President of KT. “Our customers will benefit from the increased capacity and coverage that small cells bring to the network. We will be demonstrating our LTE-A carrier aggregation solution based on the Intel Transcede SoC T2xxx solution and Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB software.”

“KT’s decision to leverage our TOTALeNodeB software for all of its small cell deployments as it builds out its LTE WARP+ heterogeneous network speaks volumes about the performance and quality of the small cell solution we bring to market as well as our team’s deployment expertise, and is why customers like KT stay with us,” said Todd Mersch, general manager, Software and Solutions, Radisys. “We’ve already successfully collaborated with Intel to deliver a stable small cell solution for KT’s enterprise deployments, and we’re able to transition this joint solution to meet its residential and outdoor picocell requirements.”

Radisys’ Trillium® TOTALeNodeB software is a turn-key, deployment proven small cell solution that dramatically simplifies the development and integration of LTE small cells while cutting the typical product development time in half. It enables customers to leverage one software solution that can support all small cell deployments across the network, from residential cells that support up to eight users to Pico cells that support 100+ users. This scalability enables rapid deployment.

Intel Transcede SoCs are dual-mode capable devices that support concurrent 3G and LTE operation combined with carrier-class software. The Intel Transcede SoC family of devices, T2xxx and T3xxx, includes support for time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA), wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA)/high-speed packet access (HSPA+) and both frequency division duplexing LTE (FDD-LTE) and time division multiplexing (TD-LTE). The T2xxx family helps operators meet the needs of cost and time to market for the residential to enterprise segment, while the T3xxx family provides operators with the high end capability for the enterprise to Pico and Metro segments. Both families of devices are in production today.

“Following the successful first wave of KT’s LTE WARP+ small cell deployments, with a fully integrated, commercial solution, we are now enabling KT’s second generation of LTE products for the residential, enterprise and outdoor small cell solutions,” said Stephen Price, General Manager, Communication’s Infrastructure Division, at Intel. “Our continued work with Radisys helps customers meet the rapidly increasing demands of mobile broadband within a Heterogeneous Networks strategy, utilizing our proven small cell solutions.”

Radisys’ Intel®-based solution has been integrated by a number of small cell vendors into their product portfolios, including Qucell, Juni Korea and Dongwon T&I. These companies have worked with Radisys and Intel to deploy commercial small cells across KT’s LTE WARP+ network.

In the domain of small cell, KT is the most proactive and aggressive global operator in the world in that it has successfully completed the deployment of world-first massive LTE femto cells across the commercial network in 2013 and is going to roll out residential femto cells as well as outdoor femto cells in 2014.

Small Cell Solutions at Mobile World Congress

KT, Intel, and Radisys will be demonstrating a world-first carrier aggregation (CA) LTE small cell solution in Hall 3, Stand 3A11 Connected City of KT booth at Mobile World Congress, February 24-27 in Barcelona. It was jointly developed by KT, Intel, and Radisys. Radisys and Intel will be showcasing small cell solutions at Mobile World Congress. Radisys will also be hosting meetings with its small cell experts at the show in Hall 5, Stand 5I61.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
