Ethernet MAC & PCS 10G/25G

Overview

Comcores 10G/25G Ethernet MAC and PCS is a silicon agnostic implementation of the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Layer 2 and PCS layer. The IP core performs the Link function of the 10G/25G Ethernet Standard and 

is a low latency cut-through or store-and-forward implementation reaching best in market results while still keeping size at a minimum. The core is richly featured, fully configurable and supports IEEE1588.

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...
