The Open RAN 4G solution disaggregates the hardware from the software to allow the mobile network operator to pick and choose each aspect of the network from a different vendor. Open RAN 4G solution consists of gNB virtualCentralized Unit (vCU), gNB virtual Distributed Unit (vDU), Symworld management, 3rd party O-RAN compliant Radio Units (O-RU) and antennas. The 4G solution is based on a VNF architecture.
The solutions for 4G and 5G can run on a COTS server on a virtualized platform independent from the underlying hardware. Finally, vCU and vDU can interface to a radio according to the O-RAN specifications, allowing the operator to choose best-of-breed hardware both for servers and radio units.
Symworld™ Network offers a complete, multi-vendor 4G/5G open RAN that is proven at scale, and independently recognized for its world-class quality. Supporting the complete network lifecycle through to live operations, Symworld Network is enabling operators to disrupt mature markets, lower costs, and rapidly roll out innovations from an open ecosystem of vendor partners.
