Movandi, KT Demo O-RAN Alliance mmWave Platforms

Movandi, a privately held company with a mission to revolutionize 5G everywhere, and KT Corporation (KRX: 030200) (NYSE: KT), South Korea´s largest telecommunications company, have announced they will jointly demonstrate an O-RAN (Open Radio Access Network) 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) radio unit (O-RU), the company said.

The technology combines essential building blocks for accelerating the development of 5G networks, by using open radio access network (O-RAN) architecture to increase flexibility for service providers.

Multi-party collaboration with Xilinx and SOLiD (the O-RAN solution provider) allowed KT to develop a 5G mmWave radio unit that uses Movandi´s BeamX technology, including RF front-end, antennas and software algorithms. Movandi´s high performance 5G mmWave solutions provide the flexibility, scalability and performance to meet the needs of the O-RAN Alliance communities and requirements across a complete range of installations and applications, meeting the needs of tier 1 operators.

Movandi was formed by some of today´s top leaders in wireless communications to disrupt 5G by using a radically different approach. 5G enables a transformation in wireless connectivity that offers orders of magnitude improvements in performance, coverage and latency.

KT reestablished in 1981 under the Telecommunications Business Act. The company is the 4th industrial revolution with high speed wire/wireless network and new ICT technology. For more information, visit https://corp.kt.com/eng/.
