Nokia mentioned the testing was carried out at its O-RAN Innovation Middle in Dallas
Finnish vendor Nokia introduced that it has efficiently accomplished interoperability testing with a Mavenir radio utilizing the O-RAN Alliance 7-2x interface at Nokia’s Open RAN Innovation Middle in Dallas, Texas.
Throughout the trial, Nokia and Mavenir validated the interoperability of Mavenir’s CBRS radio unit and Nokia AirScale Baseband supporting the O-RAN compliant 7.2x interface. The testing was carried out in line with O-RAN Alliance specs, demonstrating end-to-end configurations with 5G consumer gadgets.
Additionally, Nokia and Mavenir famous they had been in a position to exhibit 5G peak efficiency by activating 4CC Service Aggregation utilizing TDD and FDD spectrum in a 5G Standalone (5G SA) configuration.
Nokia mentioned its anyRAN method is designed to provide cell operators and enterprises extra flexibility in constructing networks that mix purpose-built, hybrid and Cloud RAN architectures with widespread software program. Nokia is supporting Open Fronthaul options on prime of its RAN software program which ensures cell operators have efficiency parity with their present RAN, the seller added.
Nokia and Mavenir claimed to have invested closely to advance the objectives of the O-RAN Alliance to construct open, interoperable and clever networks.
John Baker, SVP of enterprise improvement at Mavenir, mentioned: “This answer demonstrates a full circle of O-RAN interoperability whereby our industry-leading RAN portfolio integrates and interoperates in each instructions with merchandise from different RAN suppliers. That is actual Open RAN – not the model the place one provider solely connects their very own merchandise to one another.”
“Our know-how collaboration with Mavenir is additional proof of our dedication to Open RAN. We have now developed our baseband software program in a means that ensures that multi-supplier O-RAN methods may be deployed with out compromises in efficiency, power effectivity, safety, or resiliency. That is key when folks rely on wi-fi connectivity in all elements of their each day lives. We have now now accomplished operability with radios from 4 totally different suppliers utilizing the O-RAN compliant 7.2x interface,” mentioned Mark Atkinson, head of RAN at Nokia.
In February, Nokia had introduced the launch of its anyRAN method to assist cell operators and enterprises select purpose-built, hybrid or Cloud RAN options no matter enterprise mannequin.
With the Nokia anyRAN method, the software program can run on any associate’s cloud and server infrastructure along with Nokia AirScale base stations and Nokia AirFrame servers, the seller mentioned.
