ASOCS Ltd., a pioneer in Radio Access Network (RAN) virtualization, has joined the Cisco-led Open vRAN ecosystem aiming to accelerate the viability and adoption of Open vRAN solutions, the company said.
As demand for bandwidth continues to grow and ARPU remains low, operators are looking to eliminate reliance on expensive proprietary hardware platforms and reduce CapEx and OpEx based on a virtualized, software-based network architecture.
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) laid the groundwork for this new architecture to emerge, several industry efforts have been working specifically on the disaggregation and virtualization of the RAN, and solutions have matured. An open, standards-based virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN) is a key enabler for this new architecture and the creation of a dynamic multi-vendor ecosystem. Now the industry is at the point where it needs to accelerate the adoption of these solutions. The Open vRAN ecosystem formed by Cisco is designed to accelerate the viability and adoption of open vRAN solutions.
ASOCS is a pioneer in virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN) and a provider of fully virtualized, NFV-compatible virtual Base Station solutions for In-Building Wireless and macro-networks. To find out more visit us at www.asocscloud.com and follow us on LinkedIn.
