Massive increases in data traffic coupled with escalating requirements for end-to-end security intensify the need for highly scalable compute platforms with integrated, workload-optimized hardware accelerators to meet performance, power and total cost of ownership requirements. Built on five generations of the industry’s most scalable and widely adopted infrastructure processor platform, Marvell OCTEON devices support various applications including cellular base station designs and smart radio unit applications. A wide variety of networking and wireless equipment including switches, routers, secure gateways, firewall, network monitoring, 5G base stations, and smart network interface controllers are also enabled by OCTEON devices.
5G wireless networks promise a dramatic improvement in bandwidth and latency, delivering an unprecedented level of service, and unlocking new use cases for mobile operators. Marvell OCTEON Fusion processors are targeted for multi-sector macro BTS, micro BTS and intelligent remote radio heads as well as enterprise and microcell LTE base station designs.
