Radisys and ASOCS Partner to Deliver Virtual Base Stations for Mobile Operators’ Cloud RAN Deployments
Joint solution leverages Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB LTE small cell software and ASOCS’ PHY technology and software development expertise, delivering improved network efficiency and reduced total cost of ownership
HILLSBORO, OR, U.S. – February 10, 2015: Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, and ASOCS, Ltd., a solution provider of Virtual Base Stations (vBS) have collaborated to provide mobile operators with an NFV compatible virtual base station for their localized Cloud RAN (C-RAN) deployments. By leveraging virtualized base stations and moving their networking infrastructure to the cloud, mobile operators can increase capacity and reduce total cost of ownership.
Exploding smartphone usage is pressuring mobile operators to add capacity at a time when the cost of building, operating and upgrading the traditional RAN is becoming more expensive. Mobile operators need application-ready C-RAN platforms that are not only cost-effective, but are designed to maximize the speed of network functions running in a virtualized environment. Radisys and ASOCS virtual base station solution delivers a C-RAN ready platform that can accelerate mobile operators cloud deployments and fully realize the benefits of virtualized network functions.
“Partnering with Radisys allows us to bring our vBS and C-RAN portfolios – which are already disruptive and highly-demanded by mobile operators worldwide – to an even higher level for our customers as Radisys’ proven CellEngine software delivers a modular architecture that is a perfect fit for cloud environments,” said Gilad Garon, CEO, ASOCS. “Leveraging Radisys’ established leadership in LTE small cells allows us to build a platform-agnostic virtual base station solution that is scalable, cost-efficient and truly cloud-ready.”
The fusion of Radisys’ TOTALeNodeB™ LTE small cell software as part of the ASOCS vBS architecture delivers a virtualized software implementation of a complete base station deployed in a virtual machine on standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. TOTALeNodeB is part of Radisys’ CellEngine™ product portfolio of market-leading LTE small cell and 3G/HSPA+ femtocell protocol software and applications. It is built on the foundation of market-leading Trillium® LTE small cell protocol software and applications with Radio Resource Management (RRM), Self-Organizing Networks (SON) and Operations, Administration and Management (OAM).
“ASOCS is a leader in delivering innovative virtualized layer 1 functionality, which complements our turn-key deployment proven small cell software,” said Tom McQuade, general manager, Software & Solutions, Radisys. “By deploying radios in the network and moving the functionality to the cloud through the deployment of virtual base stations, mobile operators can take advantage of processing aggregation and dynamic allocation of resources from a central processing unit, thereby improving network efficiency and reducing costs.”
