Making private 5G interconnect easy to configure, simple to operate, and widely adopted
Simplification and scaling of private 5G solutions is going to be critical to ensure the full potential of 5G can be harnessed. In this post we will highlight an approach that can facilitate the adoption of roaming interconnect between private and public 5G networks.
Scaling the Adoption of Private Cellular Networks
The problems and solutions of interconnecting millions of private 5G networks.
Comparing Lower Layer Splits for Open Fronthaul Deployments
The transition to open RAN (Radio Access Network) based on interoperable lower layer splits is gaining significant momentum across the mobile industry. However, where best to split the open RAN is a complex compromise between radio unit (RU) simplification, support of advanced coordinated multipoint RF capabilities, consequential limitations on transport delay budgets as well as bandwidth expansion. This post compares the two leading alternative splits for realizing an interoperable open RAN.
Why WBA’s OpenRoaming is laying the foundation for a roaming revolution
OpenRoaming is set to revolutionize roaming, enabling access and identify partners with very different business models to co-operate in order to deliver seamless wireless service to users.
Open vRAN Update: NETCONF/YANG Comes to 5G RAN!
One of the key principles of the Open vRAN ecosystem that Cisco and its ecosystem partners announced earlier this year, is to establish open, standard interfaces and management for vRAN. Recently the xRAN Forum has defined the use of IETF’s NETCONF/YANG standard for programmatically configuring and managing its lower layer split RAN architecture.
Cisco joins Open Air Interface to accelerate open multi-vendor RAN splits
Cisco is pleased to announce we have joined the Open Air Interface (OAI) open source ecosystem and welcomes other members and researchers to contribute to this effort.
