O-RAN Fronthaul Transport Security using MACsec

Daniel Dik Sep 14 2022 5G provides a range of improvements compared to existing 4G LTE mobile networks in regards to capacity, speed, latency and security. One of the main improvements is in the 5G RAN; it is based on a virtualized architecture where functions can be centralized close to the 5G core for economy or distributed as close to the edge as possible for lower latency performance. The functional split options for the baseband station processing chain results in a separation between...

Unlock your chips full data throughput potential with Interlaken

Piotr Koziuk Sep 12 2022 Way back in the early 2000's when XAUI was falling short on link flexibility a search for an alternative chip-to-chip data transfer interface with SPI like features, lead Cisco Systems and Cortina System to put forward the proposal for the Interlaken standard. The new standard married the best of XAUI’s serialized data and SPI’s flow control capabilities. To this day the continuous growth in data consumption is driving demand for higher speeds, but also lower...

What is MACsec?

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn Sep 08 2022 Media Access Control Security (MACsec) is designed to provide authentication, confidentiality and integrity for data transported on point-to-point links in the enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) using the Advanced Encryption Standard with Galois/Counter Mode (AES-GCM) data cryptography algorithm. MACsec provides authentication by ensuring that only known nodes are allowed to communicate on the LAN. It provides confidentiality through encryption of the data so...

Bridging Analog and Digital worlds at high speed with the JESD204 serial interface

Piotr Koziuk Jan 13 2022 To meet the increased demand for converter speed and resolution, JEDEC proposed the JESD204 standard describing a new efficient serial interface to handle data converters. In 2006, the JESD204 standard offered support for multiple data converters over a single lane with the following standard revisions; A, B, and C successively adding features such as support for multiple lanes, deterministic latency, and error detection and correction while constantly increasing Lane...

PTP profiles for 5G networks

Niklas Meyer Mortensen Jan 04 2022 The IEEE 1588 PTP standards provide a wealth of options and the basis for highly reliable and accurate time synchronization solutions. However, the time synchronization needs of specific applications in different industries can vary quite significantly. These specific needs are defined in separate PTP profile standards, often in collaboration with other industry standards organizations. For 5G, both IEEE and ITU-T provide relevant profiles that can be used to...
