Mindspeed Technologies Inc. has co-developed a customized baseband processor with SpiderCloud Wireless featuring software, self-organizing and scalable system capabilities. According to the firms, the processor solution opens the door for mobile operators to roll out scalable deployments of robust indoor 3G systems for medium to large enterprise customers worldwide.

The SpiderCloud Wireless Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) system uses SpiderCloud's software stack that includes its own physical layer software (PHY) implementation on Mindspeed's�SoC. The PHY plays a critical role in solving mobility and interference problems of radio nodes,�which are controlled and powered by SpiderCloud's enterprise premises-based services node, detailed the companies.

The self-organizing E-RAN, which can be installed in just days by a mobile operator or its partners, delivers reliable 3G coverage and capacity of up to 1000 people using any existing Ethernet LAN for backhaul and enterprise services integration, with full mobility and cell-to-cell handoff and synchronization with the operator's macro cellular network.

"Mindspeed's technology leadership and ability to provide custom features has helped us bring to market a unique and scalable 3G small cell platform for enterprise deployments by mobile operators," said Behrooz Parsay, SVP of engineering and operations with�SpiderCloud Wireless. "SpiderCloud has invested significant time and resources to commercialize a unique PHY, MAC and upper layers solution. We've worked closely with Mindspeed in developing our own PHY as part of this new enterprise small cell network, and the combination of this with Mindspeed's expertise has resulted in a truly market leading system."
