The key concepts of Open RAN are to improve competition, network flexibility and costs by accelerating innovation and commercialization through disaggregation, providing communication service providers and mobile network suppliers with multi-vendor interoperable products and solutions tailored for the operators’ network requirements and verified for different deployment scenarios. The potential benefits include supply chain diversity, solution flexibility, and new capabilities to get new features to market faster, and through deployment of OpenRAN whitebox Distributed Unit (DU), enables operators the flexibility to extend 5G to more users in a secure, cost-effective, and energy-efficient way.
Lanner’s Open RAN appliances support the following features to meet development of disaggregated and interoperable radio Access Network (RAN) solutions based on service provider requirements.
