Open Radio Access Network (RAN) is picking up traction and commercial interest in 2023, with multiple operators actively considering the technology for their new and existing 5G networks. Whilst, 5G deployments have matured and mobile operators are looking toward the next wave of monetization, sustainability is becoming a critical topic and is now part of the criteria for vendor selection.
Intel, Dell Technologies, AWS, and Mavenir have come together to deploy and certify an Open RAN solution on COTS OEM hardware building a complete end-to-end virtualized telco network (RAN and core).
This white paper delves into the realm of AI and ML Innovations within the Open vRAN architecture, spotlighting the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) and its pivotal role in optimizing network performance.
This whitepaper explores how Open vRAN allows operators to build their networks with increased resiliency and energy efficiency.
KPIs to enable Operators to measure and manage their progress towards alignment with sustainability goals are detailed by Next Generation Mobile Network (NGMN) Alliance in its February 2023 report.
This white paper examines the implementation aspects of cloud-native virtualized Open RAN systems powered by Intel x86-based commercial servers and containerized and highly optimized RAN software developed by Mavenir and Intel, as well as strategies and technologies that are incorporated or are under development to optimize the overall system power consumption and to ensure energy efficiency across various network components and the network are described.
The technology that fuels connectivity powers some of the greatest innovations known to mankind – yet the supporting infrastructure behind it is failing to keep pace.
Interconnection and roaming are critical for mobile operators but the use of HTTP/2 based signaling in 5G networks requires a specific approach when connecting to other networks. Learn the mechanisms defined by 3GPP to secure inter-PLMN signaling and traffic on 5G interconnections and how Mavenir’s Secure Edge Protection Proxy (SEPP) protects the edge of the MNO’s core network and facilitates roaming use cases.
