SUNWAVE AND MAVENIR ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP TO EXPAND ECOSYSTEM FOR ENTERPRISE OPEN RAN
RICHARDSON, TX, October 22, 2019 – Mavenir, a US-based Network Software Provider and the industry’s only end-to-end cloud-native vendor for CSPs, and Sunwave announce successful integration of Mavenir’s virtual RAN architecture with an Open digital interface into Sunwave’s CrossFire™ product portfolio and that first customer trials are now underway.
Existing Distributed Antenna System (DAS) deployments using the CrossFire™ platform can now be upgraded to support Open RAN architectures and have an immediate path to 5G. The combination of Mavenir’s Open RAN and enterprise communication portfolio together with Sunwave’s enterprise portfolio, provide the industry with a true Open RAN production-proven platform supporting 4G/5G for Enterprise and Private LTE.
The companies will jointly or independently support Open RAN deployments in the enterprise private LTE market and take end to end responsibility.
“Our partnership with Mavenir will bring carrier-grade in-building wireless to small and medium enterprises. The digital integration of Mavenir’s Open RAN with CrossFire™ is a revolution in mobile network deployment.” Said Johnson Li, General Manager, Sunwave Communications.
“This is a game changer in DAS, Enterprise and multi-operator/neutral host deployments as it will break open the Enterprise RAN interface previously causing vendor lock-in and expensive head-end hardware. Used in conjunction with Mavenir’s enterprise portfolio provides a complete end to end network solution for operators and enterprise customers,” said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir President and CEO.
