Elliptic has joined forces with line DesignArt Networks, a leading provider of highly integrated SoCs to integrate a comprehensive security solution targeting advanced 3GPP HetNet infrastructure products.
DesignArt Networks has licensed Elliptic’s high performance Security Protocol Accelerator for LTE (SPAcc-LTE) for use in its DAN3000 family of SoCs, targeting 3G and 4G base stations for the mobile HetNet infrastructure, as well as multi-gigabit unified mobile backhaul solutions.
High-speed mobile data services require base stations to process more than 1 Gbps of 4G service access traffic, while simultaneously supporting 3G service access in mixed HetNet deployments. Elliptic’s SPAcc-LTE security engine meets these capacity and 3GPP standards support requirements, including the support for emerging LTE Advanced standards. The engine addresses the complex security requirements of highly integrated, high-performance SoC products with many powerful features including scatter-gather DMA, QoS for enhanced traffic management support and virtualization designed to allow sharing between multiple CPUs.
