It’s our first year at the 4G World conference and we’re happy to report that we’ll be bringing home an award.
At a ceremony during the Chicago conference last night, Broadcom received a Best of 4G award in the Mobile Backhaul and Core Network Innovation category. The Best of 4G Awards recognize companies driving the adoption of 4G mobile broadband. All submissions were reviewed by an independent panel of judges.
Broadcom won for its BCM56240 small cell switch solution that accelerates roll-out of high bandwidth indoor and outdoor wireless networks for operators and service providers as they upgrade legacy mobile networks. The BCM56240 is also the world’s first small cell Ethernet solution to integrate traffic management and deep packet buffering in a single chip.
“The Best of 4G Awards celebrates excellence in 4G innovation,” said Joe Braue, General Manager of 4G World. “The caliber of entries received in this year’s awards was very high, and we congratulate Broadcom for demonstrating outstanding innovation and leadership with their BCM56240 small cell switch solution.”
During this week’s show, Broadcom is demonstrating its full lineup of mobile network products—switches, processors and offerings in the wireless infrastructure and microwave space—including its latest development board. The new BCM51030 digital front end (DFE) development board provides all the components necessary for a complete transmit loop, with the exception of the customer’s selected driver and power amplifier. Boards are now available with 1, 2, or 4 transmit channels and can support any protocol combination, any power amplifier technology or architecture and any frequency band with an appropriate analog filter.
Spanning the network—from the access point to the edge, to the aggregation and the core—Broadcom provides high quality voice connections, faster app downloads and uninterrupted video streaming that supports the mobile experience that consumers crave.
We’ll will also be sharing some expertise at the show. Ran Soffer, Broadcom’s director of product marketing for Microwave Solutions, is set to present the “Business Case for Deploying Small Pico and Microcells” on October 31 at 1:45 p.m.
