O-RAN is key to enabling optimized and powerful end-to-end solutions for 5G networking. Systems integration is necessary for the deployment of end-to-end 5G solutions that span multi-layers and multi-domains. O-RAN supports 5G network integration, offering a first-class solution that integrates with hardware and radio unit components to operate seamlessly together. With O-RAN, communications service providers […]

One of the more intriguing and beneficial use cases for hyperscale and 5G is the data center itself. More specifically, the IoT and artificial intelligence (AI), backed by the power of hyperscale computing, have become important tools for enabling lights out (unmanned) data center operation. Hyperscale computing demands are ratcheting the pressure on operators to […]

Mobile network operators (MNOs) are known for their ability to build and operate massive, high-performance wireless networks. They rely on highly specialized radio access and networking equipment with tightly integrated proprietary software to deliver the cellular services that connect our cell phones, tablets, computers, and other devices. In a price sensitive market like India, telecommunication […]

The healthcare industry presents ready-made applications for ultra-reliable, low latency communication (URLLC), artificial intelligence (AI), big data storage, augmented reality, and the internet of things (IoT). Unlike factories and ports, healthcare services are also closely linked to one-to-one human interaction. Creating a connected healthcare ecosystem where technology and personalized care seamlessly coexist is the goal […]

Next generation factory automation and “Industry 4.0” are terms used to describe the impact of 5G, the IoT, and artificial intelligence on operations like manufacturing and material handling. Declaring a 4th industrial revolution places this transition on par with the original steam powered machinery used to alleviate centuries of human toil, or the first electric […]

An exciting ultra-reliable, low-latency communication (URLLC) 5G use case that is not always associated with the hyperscale ecosystem is Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). This oversight is not surprising with self-driving vehicles grabbing headlines and exceeding expectations. The hyperscale data centers anchoring 5G services from distant locations are not as visible, but they still provide essential […]

With a minimum of five thousand servers on a ten thousand square foot or larger footprint, hyperscale data centers are continually challenged by increasing bandwidth, storage, computing power, and speed requirements. The rapid scalability that defines hyperscale computing can only be accomplished through a combination of new hardware (horizontal scaling) and improved performance of existing […]

RAN Intelligent Controller

RAN Intelligent Controller At the O-RAN Alliance Plugfest at the end of last year, VIAVI, alongside partners AT&T, Samsung and Nokia, demonstrated an end-to-end traffic steering use case based on a number of open source components. One of these was the near real-time RAN Intelligent Controller platform, or RIC. Central to the demo was VIAVI’s […]

Benchmarking O-RAN

Benchmarking O-RAN performance O-RAN was big news last year, and a recent announcement from the O-RAN Alliance – one of the main bodies encouraging open RAN innovation, highlights the importance of benchmarking and testing in helping operators and others develop and get value from Open RAN deployments. Recently, the O-RAN Alliance launched a Minimal Viable […]
