Parallel Wireless, Inc. , America’s leading O-RAN Alliance compliant and cloud native Open RAN company, enabling ALL G (2G, 3G, 4G and 5G), has created the largest partner ecosystem and plans to showcase the latest innovations in Open RAN technology at Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona, Spain at Fira Gran, Hall 5, Booth 5C61, from February 28 as of March 3, 2022.
Open Radio Access Networks (RAN) have grown tremendously in recent years and the years to come will not be left out. According to Dell’Oro Group, cumulative Open RAN revenues from 2020 to 2025 could reach $15 billion, with Open RAN revenues accounting for more than 10% of the overall RAN market by 2025. The adoption of 5G technology and the ability to deploy and upgrade networks at lower cost is driving more operators to choose an Open RAN approach for their network architecture.
As Open RAN deployments take off, the ecosystem of partners in all aspects of the network, from radio to server, intelligent RAN controllers (RICs) and core, is set to grow. Open RAN promotes supplier diversity and supply chain security. With hardware and software interoperability, mobile network operators (MNOs) have the most flexible, easily scalable, and cost-effective networks, enabling advanced broadband communications.
Broad ecosystem of premium partners includes:
Most O-RAN Split 7.2 Radio Units (RU) mature to provide 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G access. Leading radio providers include Comba Telecom and GigaTera Communications.
The highest quality server partners understand Supermicro x86 processing power.
Its most recent partnership is with Juniper Networks for their world class Intelligent RAN Controller ( RIC) to host various xApp/rApps.
And for industry-leading backbone solutions, it partners with Athonet and Microsoft.
Working with a broad ecosystem of experienced partners, Parallel Wireless enables mobile network operators to deploy state-of-the-art networks, while reducing cost and complexity and increasing revenue. Parallel Wireless has deployed Open RAN networks with carriers around the world, such as Axiata Group, IpT, Vodafone, Etisalat, Millicom, BT, EE and many more.
The Future of RAN is Open is the theme of this year’s Parallel Wireless event.
Eugina Jordan, Vice President of Marketing at Parallel Wireless, will be speaking on Wednesday, March 2 as part of MWC 22’s 5G Connect theme, in a session titled “Open RAN: The Next Step” ( Open RAN: the next step).
Zahid Ghadialy, Senior Director of Technology and Innovation Strategy at Parallel Wireless, will participate in the panel discussion on Monday, February 28, themed “Open RAN: A Vision of 5G and The Future of 6G . ” 5G and the future of 6G).
Keith Johnson, President of Parallel Wireless, said, “The telecommunications industry demands open and flexible networks to reduce deployment and maintenance costs while maintaining quality of service. We are happy to work with a large and open ecosystem of disaggregated RAN solutions using vendor-neutral hardware and software technologies based on open interfaces and community-developed standards. The future of RAN is open, and we are excited to lead the transformation of the wireless industry.”
