INNOVATIVE, FLEXIBLE CLOUD-BASED

The Open RAN Partner Ecosystem provides more options and makes it easy for operators to deploy an innovative, flexible Cloud-based Open RAN solution. Mavenir acts as the End-to-End systems integrator simplifying the engagement for operators and creating an offering that is on par with the traditional, hardware-centric proprietary vendors.

Open interfaces are in the best interest of the CSPs and the overall industry. The formation of this ecosystem creates a challenger to the traditional radio vendors. Other companies are encouraged to support this effort, which will result in a game-changer, as operators continue to seek a new economic model in a world where a traditional, hardware-based approach is no longer a viable option.

This approach is now being favored by Operators who want to embrace Open RAN as it allows the deployment of open market (whitebox) remote radio unit (RRUs) to interwork with the virtualized cloud base band unit (vBBU) over ethernet fronthaul (FH). With this, CSPs can break the stranglehold of closed proprietary specifications and the need to implement dark fiber for RRU front haul, which could pose significant economical burdens in some countries. They can continue to provide fronthaul and backhaul in traditional ways like microwaves and IP/MPLS technologies.

The Open RAN Partner Ecosystem expands the addressable market for Open RAN solutions.

The ecosystem partners allow for addressing a greater variety of deployment scenarios. End-to-end solution integration makes it easier for smaller operators to deploy these solutions, as Mavenir will take on the responsibility of interoperability testing and multi-vendor integration. Smaller operators can lack the internal resources to deploy and manage a multi-vendor network, but now they will not have to be limited by that.

Interoperability testing has already been conducted based on the xRAN Option 7.2 split specification.

Recently, the full xRAN (now O-RAN) specifications have been officially released containing the management plane (M-plane), for which Mavenir significantly contributed, making this a complete open specification. Mavenir continues to test the latest version of the Option 7.2 split with the ecosystem partners, who are committed to the Open RAN community and making their solutions commercially available.
