The wireless access market segment is dominated today by the realities of long-term evolution (LTE). Many companies are strongly committed to LTE and believe that it offers simplified technology, better scalability, and ultimately a better user experience for next-generation mobile broadband. This white paper explores how Power Architecture supports the needs of the LTE market segment through efficient and reliable support for heterogeneous systems integration, scalability for system-level throughput as well as single-thread performance, power savings and power management features and ease of programmability and a rich software ecosystem.
