The rapid growth of Open RAN has enabled numerous innovations in the space of radio access network, which drives 5G service agility to the edge cloud as the disaggregation of RAN facilitates the virtualization of BNG, security, load balancing and SRv6 Service Chaining. Through multi-vendor compatibility, pre-validated Open RAN platform provides automation, dynamic scalability and assisted with low-latency, improved performance and speed of emerging 5G technology.
To enable flexible hardware and software implementations for scalable, cost-effective Open RAN deployments, Lanner collaborates with eco-system partner to develop COTS-based, modular Open RAN network platforms, which consolidate multi-node compute, P4 programmable switching and chassis management in one system. Lanner’s Open RAN platforms meet Communications Service Providers (CSPs) cost and efficiency demands for Distribution Units (DU) and Central Units (CU) in 5G network.
Lanner Open RAN appliances feature short-depth chassis and front I/O design, making it an ideal fronthaul gateway for Open RAN Infrastructure. The front-access I/O and tool-free chassis design greatly reduces the efforts for system serviceability at remote edge sites.
