Features and Capabilities Parallel Wireless OpenRAN and network software suite is the industry’s first carrier-grade, high-performance RAN and core software that is based on software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) and is 100 percent compliant with all open and standard 3GPP interfaces. It offers not only one of the best performance-to-price ratios in the industry, but also ease of deployment and hands-free maintenance with: Edge centric architectural approach further improves performance. Having this disaggregated configuration of BBU and RRH at the edge allows for the best performance and can meet the stringent delay requirements of 5G standards. 5G standards require sub-1 ms latency and greater than 1 Gbs bandwidth and ability to have millions of connections for M2M communications. Meeting 5G requirements requires a true generational shift in the way wireless networks are designed. By enabling local breakout, the software also reduces traffic towards SGW and PGW. By being an anchoring point, it handles end user mobility similar to SGW acting as a local mobility anchor point for inter-eNodeB handovers hence improving network performance. The software enables network simplification and delivers superior network performance, coverage and network resource optimization via real-time SON for optimal QoS. The OpenRAN software makes the RAN self-configurable, self-optimizing via real-time Self Organizing Network (SON) functionality. It also provides resilience and self-healing with dynamic rerouting. SON offers a range of benefits and comes with intelligent power management that monitors and manages the OpenRAN hardware to ensure that neighboring networks are not negatively impacted. All this makes it ideal for deployment using a variety of power options. This helps with the overall network performance towards a higher customer Quality of Experience (QoS). To get insights into the network, Parallel Wireless Analytics module can provide parameter audit / dump can also be extracted to study trends, etc. to provide insight into the performance of the network and take necessary steps to improve it. In addition, the analytics can be used for ongoing performance optimization and network planning purposes.
Depending on the hardware selection, our software deployed on a low-cost COTS server can deliver attachments of hundreds of thousand of cells, and 200,000+ connected users with max throughput (with IPsec on the access side) of 100 + Gbps.
