Communications & Networking

MIPS at the Heart of Communications & Networking

Whether it’s digital services and applications running wirelessly over smart city infrastructure, in-building networking systems in commercial and residential buildings, Wi-Fi access in home routers and smart home devices, or robust communications for industrial equipment, today’s networking connectivity chip providers face a range of challenges.

Solutions must handle network congestion, often high degrees of interference, and device proliferation. They must be designed to be robust, have high reliability and quality of service (QoS), and provide stable connectivity. Importantly, they must also support a vast number of standards including new satellite communications, wired communication, 5G networking, new Wi-Fi standards and low-power communication for IoT such as LTE-M, NB-IoT, LoRaWAN, Bluetooth-LE and others.

MIPS provides ideal solutions for each type of communication, taking advantage of multi-threading to handle the different data stream, together with optimized data movement features and unique real-time capabilities (e.g., low-latency interrupt handling).
