Mavenir Awarded ‘Best Open RAN Solution’ at 2020 Network Automation Awards
Mavenir’s Open RAN vRAN deployments continue to grow globally
London, England and Richardson, TX – April 22, 2020 – Mavenir, the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native Network Software Provider focused on accelerating software network transformation for Communications Service Providers (CSPs), took home the prize for ‘Best Open RAN Solution’ for its dynamic and disruptive virtualized Open RAN Access Network.
“Mavenir was recognized for their work with Turkcell, in testing and deploying Open RAN vRAN throughout the Turkcell Group. Mavenir have been as the forefront of the TIP Open RAN project group and continues to lead the way.” said Millad Farahani, Head of Content at Layer123.
Mavenir’s Open RAN vRAN solution is deployed and running live commercial traffic, transforming the CSP’s mobile network economics with potential cost reductions of over 35% while equaling performance metrics of traditional D-RAN solutions.
“As a pioneer in the implementation of the Open RAN approach, we are pleased to see the growing number of deployments with major CSPs around the world,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir. “We are honored to be recognized for our Open RAN expertise as the proven partner for CSPs looking to future proof their networks.”
As a Network Software Provider, Mavenir’s approach is radically different from traditional proprietary approaches. With a comprehensive portfolio of fully virtualized VNFs, cloud native virtualization of the baseband processing is extended to the edge of the network. vRAN brings increased business agility with network elasticity, flexibility, and dynamic RAN optimization. With baseband processing, centralization enables dynamic RAN adaptation through hierarchical mobility, SON, CoMP, centralized scheduling, policy enforcement, and interference control. In addition, Mavenir’s vRAN is designed to support multiple Fronthaul architectures simultaneously – making the vRAN solution an ideal choice for a vendor-agnostic and future-proof strategy for the CSPs.
The Network Automation Awards were announced at the Network Automation World Congress webinar on April 22, 2020.
