Mavenir’s Open vRAN Containerized Small Cell Solution Wins Award for Outstanding Contribution to Emerging Technology or Architecture

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mavenir, the networking software provider building the future of networking, with cloud-native software that runs on any cloud, and transforming the way the world connects, announced today that it has won an award SCF Small Cell Awards 2022 for his outstanding contribution to emerging technologies or architectures, for his design and delivery of the first fully containerized Open Small Cell Virtualized Radio Access Network (Open vRAN), for indoor and outdoor connectivity.

Mavenir’s containerized Open vRAN solution is a first of its kind and combines the interoperability of Open RAN with the portability and flexibility of containers. This small cell solution brings the same forward-looking approaches of Open RAN and containerization by having significant impacts in macro networks to small cell networks.

This demonstration of a containerized solution is a major step in the transition of connectivity, and the move from physical infrastructure to a cloud-based digital environment. Containers take virtualization to the next level, allowing network workloads to run anywhere, on premises, private cloud or public cloud. The same solution can be easily moved to a different platform without any changes, producing the best use of resources at the best price. Containerization provides greater flexibility, but also significant advantages in terms of speed and cost of deployment. Moving network functions to a different platform can be done in minutes.

The combination of Open RAN and containerization in a single architecture brings:

  • New revenue streams, lowering the break-even point for small cell deployments

  • Greater flexibility to handle workloads

  • An increase in the pool of suppliers and a stimulation of innovation

Presentation of the prize at the Small Cell World Summit, Caroline Gabriel, Rethink Technology Research: “ The judges were enthusiastic about this solution because it combined two important technologies, in a way that contributes to a key objective for operators: fully distributed load and traffic management. This is going to be very important in making virtualized small cell networks scalable and efficient. »

Open vRAN containerized architecture is complemented by the radio wallet OpenBeam from Mavenir, designed to meet a wide range of use cases, including basic coverage across all frequency bands, outdoor small cells, urban and rural.

The delivery of small cells from Mavenir combining Open RAN and containerization is currently deployed by Vodafone UK for indoor and outdoor connectivity, and implemented in a Open RAN 4G/5G pilot with Türk Telekom.
