As smartphones and tablets proliferate into all geographic areas and vertical markets, operators require small form factor base stations that still offer the range and mobility features of macro cells. The OCTBTS 3000 is a full-featured SDR base station on a 70 mm by 75 mm module -- a footprint about the size of a credit card -- that includes all network interface, packet processing, baseband processing, and RF functions. Designed in collaboration with existing Octasic clients, the OCTBTS 3000 is ideal for leading and specialty vendors targeting applications such as outdoor small cells, rural networks, emergency response networks, private cellular networks, and other specialized base stations.
"Customers asked us for an extremely compact and power-efficient base station platform," commented
A perfect fit for applications requiring low power consumption (approximately 10 Watts for the base station without a power amplifier), the OCTBTS 3000's power efficiency is enabled by Octasic's OCT2224W base station baseband system-on-chip (SoC).
Beyond low power consumption and small size, the OCTBTS 3000 offers all the benefits of the OCTBTS family, including:
•20 Km range for all mobile standards •Multi-protocol support (GSM/EDGE, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, CDMA) on a single platform •Software-controlled frequency agility from 400 MHz to 3 GHz •Fast, low-risk development, thanks to pre-integrated solutions that include hardware, optimized Octasic flexiPHY radio physical layer software, and MAC software from a choice of leading vendors.
