Fast track for 5G transformation via Open Radio Access Networks

A global Network Equipment Provider needed a solution to improve the efficiency of software development and maintenance of Radio Unit products. Our Open RAN experts stepped in.

The challenge

The 5G transformation and increasing device connectivity introduce new 5G radio frequency bands, antenna types and varying physical radio unit packages. This leads to an increasing number of needed Radio Unit products. The global Network Equipment Provider wanted to ensure faster time-to-market and efficient software maintenance for the Radio Unit portfolio.

The solution

We helped the company to define the modular software architecture, supporting software development and maintenance for their portfolio of Radio Unit products. The SW architecture for Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) Radio Unit is based on a service-oriented approach de-coupling SW modules as far as possible. Our team also delivered software development of the modules that were generic to all Radio Unit products, as well as some product-specific development work.
