Small cell solutions enable network connectivity that take advantage of increasingly available spectrum while supporting innovative use cases across industries, including Industry 4.0 in manufacturing and factory automation, healthcare, retail, hospitality, aviation, maritime, and first responder applications.

To meet the growing need for enhanced network capacity and coverage, Mavenir offers a full range of indoor and outdoor small cells, from residential to enterprise to rural applications. The proven carrier grade solutions are easy to deploy, fully automated, highly scalable and adaptable.

Open RAN and Small Cells

Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) principles present an alternative way of building networks that ensures interoperability, vendor competition, element security and reduced operating costs across the RAN.

Open RAN technology extends to small cell deployments with Mavenir Virtualized Multi-Radio Access Technology (vMRAT), which can integrate 2G and 3G capabilities into the Open RAN architecture in addition to 4G and 5G broadband technologies already supported. A seamless, vMRAT single RAN solution helps CSPs and enterprises achieve the benefits of advanced radio solutions across all layers, including incorporating legacy technology in Open RAN strategies, the ability to scale for more users over a longer range, and the potential to take advantage of spectrum for secure private network deployments.
