Mavenir Launches Open RAN Intelligent Controller (O-RIC) Offering Enabling Service Differentiation and Network Resource Optimization
Mavenir, the Network Software Provider building the future of networks with cloud-native solutions that run on any cloud, today announced the availability of its O-RAN alliance Radio Access Network Intelligent Controller (RIC), a next-generation network intelligence offering for Open RAN. Mavenir O-RIC enables the creation of differentiated services through open APIs, which enable intelligent closed-loop end-to-end network tuning to optimize network performance, increase cost efficiency and maximize the user experience. Mavenir's O-RIC offers Network Intelligence as a Service (NIaaS) that provides deep, fine-grained insights about the network and enables building solutions with advanced state of art intelligence. Open RAN networks can also now generate new class-of-service revenue streams by adaptively reacting in near-real time to dynamic changes in network, traffic, and load patterns. Mavenir's O-RIC is currently in deployment with two, tier one Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
Traditional RAN networks currently use area wide Self-Organizing Network (SON) models for exercising Radio Resource Management (RRM) and configuration management optimization decisions at a per-cell level. They rely on single control loop, leverage key performance indicators (KPIs) and analytics for such control decisions at non-real time (Non-RT) granularities.
Mavenir's O-RIC surpasses the capabilities of SON with two control loops:
Mavenir's O-RIC shifts control from the vendor ecosystem to the operator by delivering an Open API framework that allows the implementation of standards-based rApps and xApps for different business outcomes, such as energy savings, traffic steering, massive MIMO optimization, spectral efficiency improvements, and RAN slice assurance. Proprietary radio access solutions limit the choice to what their vendor has to offer and open up the network to fine-grained per user data-driven optimization. With Mavenir's RIC, applications can be developed by an in-house team or purchased in an "app store" from any Open RAN compliant third party.
"Creating real business value for next-generation Open RAN networks requires deep telco domain expertise and a disruptive approach to network intelligence," said Brandon Larson, SVP & GM of the Multimedia Business Unit at Mavenir. "As a pioneer in cloud-native solutions at a massive scale, Mavenir is leading the way with award-winning Open vRAN solutions, layered with O-RIC AI and ML algorithms and applications, which create operator customizable business outcomes based on target objectives to solve unique business problems and give control of the network back to the CSP."
Mavenir's O-RIC offers unparalleled benefits in terms of (i) Network performance, (ii) User Experience, (iii) Reduced TCO, (iv) Simplified cloud-native deployments, (v) new revenue sources, etc.
