BASEBAND UNIT

 

Baseband Units (BBU) increasingly rely on commercial server chips as C-RAN topology is getting deployed. BBUs need to be able to control the evolving fronthaul networks by supporting different types of fronthaul topologies, equipment, protocols and line rates. The complexity of this process makes BBU testing challenging and time consuming. X-STEP™ is a perfect solution, as all protocols, equipment combinations, and line rates are supported. 

Select a focus area from the below list to learn how X-STEP™ could boost your Baseband Unit development and verification work.
