An industry leading eNodeB software framework that helps Communication Equipment Providers (CEPs) and Test & Measurement (T&M) equipment providers develop a complete eNodeB solution with significant time-to-market advantage. The software is also available pre-integrated as an OEM-ready reference solution on industry-leading L1 and silicon/hardware platforms. This is a widely deployed and inter-operated framework with over 70 OEMs having chosen Aricent's eNodeB framework or reference solution on different SoC platforms.
The software consists of the following protocols stack/modules:
- User Plane
- Media Access Control (MAC)
- Radio Link Control (RLC)
- Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP)
- Evolved GPRS Tunneling Protocol-User plane (eGTP-U)
- Control Plane
- Radio Resource Control (RRC)
- S1 Application Protocol (S1AP)
- X2 Application Protocol (X2AP)
- Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
- Management Plane
- TR-069 Client
