The transition to 4G networks continues to drive the need for higher capacity and packet traffic in mobile backhaul networks. To meet the demand, Broadcom Corporation has developed the BCM85620 system-on-a-chip (SoC) designed specifically to address the need for higher bandwidth in mobile backhaul. The BCM85620 delivers Gigabit bandwidth and beyond and combines a baseband modem and network processor in one chip.

Today’s announcement also represents the successful integration of Provigent within just six months post acquisition.

With enhanced radio performance and advanced networking capabilities, the BCM85620 provides radio-optimized traffic delivery, including robust clock delivery over packet transport needed for network synchronization. Coupled with 1.25 Gbps throughput and higher capacity, the BCM85620 enables wireless backhaul systems to support the demanding requirements of 4G/LTE networks.
