OCTBTS 5000

The OCTBTS5000 is a dual-sector software defined base station platform that supports any combination of GSM, UMTS/HSPA, CDMA2000 or LTE sectors. The OCTBTS5000 is also a perfect platform for developing custom waveforms and implementation of LTE Advance and 5G systems which require MIMO capability and demand high processing power. This single-width mid-size AMC module houses four Octasic 24-core DSPs, two NXP quad-core ARM CPUs and a powerful Xilinx FPGA. A variant of this module comes equipped with two SFP connectors on the front panel providing CPRI link and allowing the module to be used with third party remote radio head (RRH) solutions.

Software

Users of the OCTBTS 5000 have access to integrated hardware/software packages. DSPs run physical layer (PHY) software for multiple cellular standards including GSM/GPRS/EDGE, CDMA2000, UMTS/HSPA, LTE-FDD/TDD and radio utility system (RUS). RUS gives functionalities like Network Listen, RF Player/Recorder and Base station automatic synchronization. CPUs run higher layer protocol stack (Layer 2/3) and core network software for all cellular standards. All software layers (L1/2/3 and core) are fully integrated and can be delivered as a turn-key solution.
