The latest symposium took a turn toward business use cases at the expense of the usual technical talks, with speakers saying that use cases should drive the technology. Through most of 5G’s development, conference topics generally focused on the technologies such as the radio and network technologies. With much of that settled, talk moved to…
EdgeQ is sampling what it calls a “base station on a chip” that handles high-PHY through baseband. CEO Vinay Ravuri explains its architecture in a video.
The Open RAN software vendor is now part of the Japanese mobile network operator. 5G Technology World interviewed Altiostar’s Thierry Maupile about how the company will operate from now on.
Keeping Open RAN software secure means containerizing functions, securing each container, and securing the entire software design.
Microchip’s ZL30735 integrates eight DPLLs, five low-output jitter synthesizers, and an IEEE 1588-2008 protocol stack. The splitting of radio access network functions creates an Open RAN that promises greater innovation and features in 5G networks. Splitting the traditional baseband unit into radio units (RU), distribution units (DU) and centralized units (CU) brings timing issues not…
In a video interview, Fujitsu’s Femi Adeyemi talks with 5G Technology World about the company’s 5G radios and the Telecom Infrastructure Project. While most of the 5G talk surrounding Open RAN focuses on the digital baseband, those digital data streams come from and go to the radio. Fujitsu Network Communications has developed two 5G radios…
Open radio access networks offer advantages in locating network functions of proprietary RANs. Automation and orchestration let telecom networks do what computing networks have done for years.
IEEE 1588 PTP and SyncE protocols keep radio units, switches, and distribution units in sync.
The open standards for radio access networks offer options for locating network functions. These functional split options depend on network services and available transport links.
5G Technology world will host a discussion on Open RAN technology on June 16, 2021. Register here.
