In addition to being able to handle 2G, 3G & 4G RAN functionality, the PW Open RAN solution would be able to support multiple 5G network architecture deployment options simultaneously. Each gNodeB can be configured to work as a gNB for NSA or as gNB for SA. Intelligent algorithms in the software platform can handle routing of signaling and data from each eNB/gNB to the required EPC/5GC. The intelligent algorithms are also able to provide slicing like functionality to legacy 2G/3G networks as well as 4G.
Slicing helps support new use cases and differentiated experiences including private networks and will be a source of new revenue for the mobile operators.
