The OCTBTS 3600 is a dual-sector software defined radio platform that supports any combination of GSM, HSPA, LTE or CDMA2000 sectors, or custom waveforms. It incorporates a standard PCIe interface typically used in standard Intel® x86 based PCs and systems. The PC host CPU runs the upper layer protocols and applications, and OEMs can use the combination of OCTBTS 3600 and PC chassis to implement a complete and flexible base station.

The OCTBTS 3600 platform incorporates Octasic’s flexiPHY GSM, HSPA, LTE and CDMA2000 software, and is pre-integrated with a range of commercial Layer 2/3 stacks from leading vendors. OEMs can leverage the complete solution to deliver high-performance base stations offering their own differentiating features, while reducing development time, cost, and risk. OEMs also have the option to integrate their own Layer 2/3 stack, or to implement fully custom waveforms using Octasic’s Opus Studio development environment.
