NEC's PASOLINK products facilitate communication between a network's core and intermediate network points such as wireless base stations.
These "backhaul" links require equipment that delivers high levels of performance, flexibility and energy efficiency, as demand for content grows and the number of worldwide wireless devices and subscribers expands dramatically.
"NEC has been recognized as the market share leader for three straight years in the global compact microwave communications system market," said Katsuhiro Sasaki, general manager, mobile wireless network division of NEC..
“To solidify this position, we must continue to develop competitive products,” said Sasaki.
NEC is glad to be working with Freescale (News - Alert), which has a strong track record in the communications market. Their products offer an ideal balance of performance and power with a rich set of interfaces, said Sasaki.
"Freescale is pleased to provide the embedded intelligence for NEC's newest line of industry-leading compact microwave communications systems," said Tsuneji Inami, director for Freescale Semiconductor (News - Alert) Japan.
Inami said that the performance, integration and low power operation of the company’s processors are ideal for helping this world-class OEM expand market share.
Freescale Semiconductor is a global player in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors for the automotive, consumer, industrial and networking markets.
Recently Freescale Semiconductor introduced a comprehensive silicon and software solution for the rapid creation of multi-service business gateway (MSBG) equipment combining services such as data, security, voice and fax.
Based on the QorIQ P1020 processor, the solution integrates Freescale’s VortiQa Security Application Software and D2 Technologies’ (News - Alert) embedded vPort VoIP software, as well as virtualization support from Green Hills Software for the potential incorporation of additional services.
