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.


The OCTBTS 3600 is based on Octasic’s OCT2224W wireless DSP SoC, and is fully integrated with Octasic’s corresponding flexiPHY modem software that offers developers ready-to-run multi-standard cellular solutions.  Find out more about flexiPHY.
