BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress --
Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in
semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced
that Quanta Computer Inc., a leading datacenter hardware solution provider and
the world's largest notebook computer ODM based in Taiwan, has selected
Broadcom dual mode small cell system-on-chip (SoC) solutions to power its next
generation Qcell LTE small cell solutions for enterprise and residential
deployments. Broadcom's integrated solutions allow Quanta to deliver high
performance small cell solutions to the world's major network operators and
service providers. Broadcom will showcase its small cell innovations at Mobile
World Congress in Barcelona, February 24 - 27. Visit

Operators are expected to offload a large portion of data traffic over indoor
and outdoor small cells to add needed bandwidth and coverage for subscribers,
while maximizing spectrum efficiency. Broadcom's BCM617xx dual mode small cell
SoCs deliver the highest levels of integration, allowing ODMs such as Quanta
to reduce their overall bill of materials and dramatically reduce power
consumption.

"Quanta has adopted Broadcom's state-of-the-art SoC solutions to enable our
industry leading products for quite some time," said Frank Jiang, Quanta Vice
President. "By integrating Broadcom's leading edge, highly integrated SoC
solutions in our LTE small cell product line, we are providing our customers
with the performance and quality they have come to expect in a single,
integrated solution."

"Broadcom's dual-mode small cell SoCs allow carriers to optimize spectrum
efficiency for an overall increase in network capacity and a smooth migration
path from 3G to 4G/LTE," said Greg Fischer, Broadcom Vice President and
General Manager, Broadband Carrier Access. "Leading ODMs such as Quanta can
quickly build and deploy innovative small cell solutions to meet operator
demand for increased bandwidth and network performance."
