Radio Access Networks (RAN)

A flexible Radio Access Network (RAN) is the cornerstone of next-generation mobile network infrastructure. The evolved Open RAN architecture, designed with cloud-native virtualization techniques, enables the RAN to flex and adapt based on usage and coverage.

Cloud computing shifts network functions from dedicated hardware platforms into virtualized software components that can be implemented on COTS hardware, which can be pooled in centralized data centers. The approach helps to achieve significant Capex and Opex savings in hardware and management costs with increased flexibility and agility of the network to shorten time to market.

Traditional RAN platforms have been based on proprietary hardware and rely on long life cycles in development, deployment, and operation. With each generation of radio interface change, these radios are typically replaced with the newer versions at a significant investment and inconvenience to the CSPs. This also creates vendor lock-in and the inability to keep pace with technology and demographic transitions.

Mavenir’s approach is radically different from traditional proprietary approaches. With a comprehensive portfolio of Open RAN, fully virtualized VNFs, cloud-native virtualization of the baseband processing is extended to the edge of the network.
