Santa Barbara, California - October 25, 2011— Axxcelera Broadband Wireless, a data networking company and Aricent, a global innovation and technology services company, today announced that Axxcelera will license Aricent’s industry leading eNodeB software framework. Under this agreement, Axxcelera will combine Aricent’s eNodeB software framework with its hardware to develop innovative, standards compliant LTE eNodeB software frameworks. These will be part of Axxcelera’s broader LTE product range covering all aspects from the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) to high performance user equipment (UEs).
Today's announcement addresses a deep market need for a robust, standards compliant eNodeB software framework that telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) can readily integrate into their products. Such frameworks accelerate the launch of advanced solutions while reducing the overall product development risk and R&D expenses.
“With LTE becoming the single biggest investment by operators, telecom equipment manufacturers are under pressure to deliver innovative solutions quickly and efficiently,” said Rakesh Vij, vice president of business development, wireless and convergence for Aricent. “We are delighted to provide our award-winning software framework to Axxcelera to deliver world-class, feature rich products and services in record time.”

This business partnership enables immediate acceleration of our eNodeB development while allowing Axxcelera to continue to deliver superior, cost effective wireless broadband solutions to the global marketplace. We are looking forward to providing more details on our exciting product range in the first quarter of next year."
The Aricent eNodeB software framework integrates Layer 2 and Layer 3+ modules in a package that serves as a robust reference platform for developing a complete LTE eNodeB solution. It provides complete Layer 2 and Layer 3 functionalities, and exposes clear interfaces for TEMs that help them to differentiate their products in areas such as Self Organized Networks (SON), Radio Resource Management (RRM), and Operation and Maintenance (OAM).
The key features of the Aricent eNodeB software framework are:
- Plug and Play: Flexible and modular architecture enables easy porting and optimization on any platform, and seamless integration with third party software.
- Optimized Performance: Customized to deliver optimal performance on several industry leading platforms to realize the true potential of LTE.
