Mavenir, a US headquartered Network Software Provider, and the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native vendor for CSPs, has announced the launch and availability of its fully virtualized 4G/5G OpenRAN solution. Operators can evolve their network now to a hardware agnostic, cost effective solution and be ready for 5G with a software upgrade.
Mavenir’s OpenRAN extends virtualization to the edge of the network and provides strategic differentiation by enabling multisource Remote Radio Units (RRUs) to interwork with the virtualized Cloud Base Band software over ethernet Fronthaul (FH), using the O-RAN open interface overcoming the traditional constraints of the proprietary walled garden specifications used by the other traditional equipment vendors. Highlights include:
- Support for O-RAN 7.2 Radio Architecture with Open Interfaces
- Support for 3GPP Split 2 Architecture with Open Interfaces
- Scalability and independence from proprietary hardware, faster time to market of new features
- Ability to centralize the baseband Distributed Unit (DU) and Central Unit (CU) resources
- Enable dynamic scaling of capacity growth, operational & maintenance cost savings and simplicity
“We are continuing our tradition of leading the virtualization of key network applications. With the experience of being the first to successfully launch virtualized VoLTE, VoWiFi, IMS core, RCS, SBC, EPC, as well as virtualized Security Gateway, Home NodeB Gateway, etc over the last 10 years, we are now ready to bring vRAN technology to market,” said Pardeep Kohli, President, and CEO of Mavenir. “Operators need alternatives to the traditional vendors, particularly in countries with restrictions, and as a U.S-based and headquartered company we are that alternative. With our complete virtualized portfolio and experience with all the key network components, we are uniquely positioned to enable customers to evolve their networks with a tested, integrated, reliable solution that avoids using proprietary hardware, extensive integration cost and is fully upgradable to 5G via software update.”
