Marvell Introduces Industry's First 50G PAM4 DSP Chipset for Next Generation 5G RAN Optical Fronthaul

Marvell | December 10, 2021

Marvell announced the industry's first 50Gbps PAM4 DSP and TIA chipset solution for 5G fronthaul, which enables industry-leading performance for integrated radio access networks (RAN), as well as Open (O-RAN) and virtualized (vRAN) architectures. To meet growing 5G capacity demands, carriers are seeking advanced fronthaul solutions that scale beyond 25G. The Marvell® AtlasOne™ chipset, optimized for superior performance and up to 25% lower power consumption1, is part of a market-leading electro-optics portfolio that puts Marvell at the forefront of this transition. 5G adoption is accelerating among consumers and expanding into new enterprise and industrial markets. To prepare for the anticipated surge in 5G traffic, carriers are upgrading radio capacity with wider bandwidths – up to 200 MHz – and massive MIMO technology with up to 64 transmit and receive antennas per Radio Unit (RU). In order to realize these capacity gains, the corresponding fronthaul bandwidth needs to be concurrently increased to 50G, which is driving demand for the AtlasOne platform. O-RAN and vRAN architectures also amplify AtlasOne advantages. O-RAN enables carriers to accelerate capacity upgrades by selecting the best-in-class radio and fronthaul solutions from different vendors as soon as the most advanced solutions become available. With vRAN, baseband capacity instances can be aggregated in a Distributed Unit (DU) and dynamically shared among multiple RUs. When sufficient radio and fronthaul bandwidths are provisioned, carriers can adaptively shift capacity towards unforeseen traffic spikes to improve network efficiency and user experience. Together with OEM partners, Marvell's combination of industry-leading AtlasOne fronthaul, widely deployed OCTEON Fusion® RAN silicon, Prestera® switches and Alaska® Ethernet PHYs, are helping operators push the envelope of 5G network performance. "We're proud to introduce the AtlasOne chipset, a robust, high-performance solution that is helping to make 50G a reality in 5G infrastructure,With this latest addition to our portfolio, we offer telecom carriers access to the same trusted solutions that Marvell has successfully delivered to top hyperscale data center operators." Xi Wang, VP Product Marketing, Optical Connectivity at Marvell "Fueled by burgeoning 5G adoption and Internet traffic growth, advances in both radio unit capabilities and system architecture are accentuating the importance of high-speed data interconnect, particularly at the edge, where network efficiency and scalability can be greatly enhanced with new virtualized architectures," said Stéphane Téral, Chief Analyst, LightCounting. "With Marvell's extensive end-to-end RAN experience, its new AtlasOne chipset is well-positioned to become an essential ingredient for the most advanced 5G networks." Marvell AtlasOne chipset includes: Marvell's industry-leading PAM4 digital core for optimal performance across a range of applications. Marvell's companion IN5662 TIA to deliver remarkable linearity while maintaining ultra-low noise and power. The industry's first PAM4 DSP integrated Direct Modulated Laser driver in mainstream CMOS technology. Industrial temperature range support for 5G fronthaul applications. About Marvell To deliver the data infrastructure technology that connects the world, we're building solutions on the most powerful foundation: our partnerships with our customers. Trusted by the world's leading technology companies for 25 years, we move, store, process and secure the world's data with semiconductor solutions designed for our customers' current needs and future ambitions. Through a process of deep collaboration and transparency, we're ultimately changing the way tomorrow's enterprise, cloud, automotive, and carrier architectures transform—for the better.

Tenda PoE Switches Offers Protection to the IT Network Infrastructure

Tenda | June 30, 2020

The monsoon season is here and we all love rains as they bring down the temperatures and make weather soothing but it is also the time of the year where the probability of electrical hazards increases. Thus, it is extremely important to take safety measures for the rainy season from the start itself. The IT Network Infrastructure needs precautions to safeguard the network. To address the same, Tenda, a leading provider of networking devices has a range of PoE Switches for both household and commercial uses. Tenda PoE Switches acts as the heart of the network infrastructure; acting as a controller, allowing networked devices to talk to each other efficiently without any hindrances. A PoE switch is a network switch that has Power over Ethernet injection built-in. One simply needs to connect other network devices to the switch as normal and the switch will detect whether they are PoE-compatible and enable power automatically. PoE switches are available to suit all applications, from low-cost unmanaged edge switches with a few ports, up to complex multi-port rack-mounted units with sophisticated management.

Movandi Demonstrates 5G mmWave Connectivity for Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything Communications

Movandi | May 25, 2021

Movandi, a leader of new 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) technology, revealed today the successful demonstration of mmWave repeaters, delivering on the promise of seamless 5G cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication for the next generation of connected vehicles. On the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network, a Movandi BeamXR powered mmWave repeater installed within a car allowed greater than 10x efficiency gains with an average throughput of 1.5 gigabits per second (Gbps). The test results revealed a 25X improvement in throughput over a standard 4G LTE service, and it was carried out on behalf of an industry partner. The 5G mmWave spectrum has orders of magnitude greater efficiency than the sub-6 GHz spectrum by providing for much higher data rates and lower latency. This performance will allow the low latency and high throughput expected by sensor-laden connected cars, which generate terabytes of data for cloud-based AI systems and predictive algorithms to improve safety and collision avoidance systems. However, as the industry transitions from 4G to 5G, many service providers see sub-6 GHz technology as the only viable 5G solution for mobile connectivity in automobiles. Higher-speed mmWave technology is believed to be too difficult to implement in fast-moving vehicles where steel and glass materials act as barriers to mmWave signal penetration. This challenge is illustrated by the short-range and lower data speeds experienced by users of 5G mmWave-enabled handsets while on the road. Gartner predicts that the attach rate of 5G interfaces in embedded automotive telematics will rise from 0% in 2019 to 51% by 2029. The automobile industry will accelerate 5G adoption for the Internet of Things (IoT), with almost 180 million connected vehicles by 2029. Movandi has shown that its BeamXR mmWave powered repeaters integrated into vehicles can overcome these difficulties, allowing uninterrupted ultra-wideband communications in urban areas with 5G access points spaced approximately 1,000 meters apart. Next-generation Node B (gNB) base stations are often deployed 500 meters apart in today's typical 5G coverage areas. Coverage is often restricted within a few meters of a gNB, while BeamXR-powered mmWave repeaters extend continuous coverage and have a seamless handoff between gNBs to ensure continuity. 5G connections with 1.5 Gbps data speeds can be achieved with gNBs placed farther apart (1000 meters or more) by using mmWave repeaters within vehicles, allowing operators to reduce costs by reducing the number of gNBs deployed along roadways. If the vehicle is moving or stationary, BeamXR-powered repeaters can have uninterrupted 5G ultra-wideband coverage for end-users and edge computing systems in infotainment control panels. The repeaters collaborate with the base station to provide continuous coverage at highway speeds while completing handoffs between gNBs in sub-seconds. A single repeater can support multiple mobile phones or modems within a vehicle while also providing 5G backhaul to the cloud for self-driving cars. Movandi repeaters also help to reduce mobile phone power usage and mmWave radiation inside the vehicle. Movandi provides full 5G mmWave reference designs, demos, and trial opportunities to customers to help them lower development costs and accelerate time to market. About Movandi Movandi is the fastest-growing 5G mmWave solutions company, focusing on the design and development of deep technologies for 5G and beyond, interconnecting our world and enabling AI apps to improve the lives of all humanity.
