Plauen in Germany Laces Together Open RAN First
Mavenir is working with Vodafone to deliver Open RAN compliant 4G and 5G systems across several locations in Plauen.
The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure is part-funding a new project to transform Plauen into an Open RAN city, with technical know-how from Vodafone and its partners.
The system will integrate Mavenir’s radio units, other units from MTI Technology, and includes Massive MIMO capabilities – all running on Mavenir’s Open RAN software using COTS (Common Off The Shelf) servers provided by Supermicro. This is the first time Mavenir’ Massive MIMO Open RAN’ antennas will be tested in the field in Europe.Read More
