The Lattice ORAN solution stack enables ORAN deployment by providing solutions for robust security (encryption, authentication, root-of-trust ), flexible fronthaul synchronization (ORAN functional split options, IEEE 1588, eCPRI, TSN ), and low power hardware acceleration for functions such as MACsec/IPsec, and 5G-ORAN small cell. These are all needed as the wireless network converges to a new paradigm of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and disaggregation.
The first offering of the stack will address the growing security threats that SDN and massive disaggregation expose. In this environment it becomes vital to secure all aspects of the platform design to prevent network down time and compromising sensitive proprietary data. The Lattice ORAN solution stack provides encryption and authentication functions over the PCIe interface enabling a secure path for all commands and messages traversing this interface. In addition, it will provide protection for out-of-band communications over PCIe, SMBus, and I2C.
The Lattice ORAN incorporates a hardware platform, security IP blocks, easy to use FPGA and Lattice Propel™ and Lattice Radiant® software design tools, reference design and demonstrations as well as custom design services as required.
