Ranplan Joins O-RAN Alliance Heralding a New Era of Cloud-Based Collaborative Network Design and Optimization

Ranplan Wireless, an independent provider of telecom software solutions, announces its commitment to the O-RAN Alliance, the company said.

Embracing O-RAN´s core principles of intelligence and openness, Ranplan will guide development of open interfaces and closely participate with global carriers in the promotion of the guiding principles of the O-RAN community.

With mobile operators preparing for the deployment of much more highly complex radio networks than previously thought conceivable, accurate network planning and optimization calls for a holistic approach, one typified by close coordination of the indoor and the outdoor environment.

Ranplan is involved with a number of deployments, pioneering solutions for heterogenous planning and optimization of wireless networks integrated with customers´ operating support systems (OSS) enabling computer-aided automation after initial deployment of radio access nodes.

A key conclusion shows traditional models of largely proprietary systems must give way to a format of open, secure, multi-party collaboration. Understanding the benefits of incorporating a heterogenous design management platform with an open architecture unleashes operational efficiency gains.

Ranplan Wireless is an innovative technology company that has developed the world´s only solution that can plan, design and optimize multi-layered in-building and outdoor wireless networks in a coordinated manner. Ranplan Wireless is a subsidiary of Ranplan Group AB (Nasdaq First North: RPLAN) whose head office is in Stockholm, Sweden. The group operates out of offices in the UK, US and China.
