The solution expands the MAVair radio and access portfolio of small cells, and has been tested and commercially deployed with a “Tier-1 European CSP”.
The outdoor small cell ‘Mavenir O410’ supports both distributed and centralized Open RAN architectures, supports both Split 2 and S1 interfaces and can be configured remotely.
The solution is plug and play, with zero-touch provisioning and installation, powered with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and offers interfaces with the same Open RAN CU as the macro network, and with common management with macro.
“This 4G outdoor small cell is the precursor for a completely new line of 4G and 5G Open RAN-based small cell products with integrated DU, as well as Multi RAT radio access solutions in general.” said Mavenir’s Aniruddho Basu, SVP and GM of Emerging Business.
With the release of the 4G outdoor small cell, Mavenir now has a complete offering of Multi-G (2G/3G/4G/5G), software upgradable, Open RAN-based small cells enabling CSPs to enhance their network capacity and coverage beyond in-building use cases.
