Radisys, in collaboration with Intel and China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) have demonstrated a 5G New Radio reference architecture and use cases based on the O-RAN Alliance specification. The solution leverages Radisys’ disaggregated RAN software architecture building blocks for 4G, 5G and IoT and Intel’s FlexRAN Layer 1 based on Intel architecture platforms. By leveraging open RAN architectures in their networks, mobile operators will be able to accelerate their 5G deployments.
“China Mobile is a founding member of the O-RAN Alliance and co-chair of WG8, and we are dedicated to bringing openness and intelligence to the 5G RAN built with virtualized network elements, open hardware and open APIs. The Alliance’s success depends on key contributions from our members, both mobile operators and vendors. China Mobile is glad to see key O-RAN members including Radisys have begun actively contributing seed codes. We are also committed to contributing code to the O-RAN SC community. China Mobile believes that the open source RAN software will play an important role in promoting the prosperity of an open ecosystem.”
