SANTA CLARA, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – IP Infusion, a leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecommunications and data communications operators, participated in the O-RAN Global PlugFest 2021 which included 94 participating companies, to provide capabilities synchronization and transport with the OcNOS® network operating system in RAN multi-environment from the supplier conforming to the O-RAN specifications.
IP Infusion’s Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) solution offers feature-rich transport capabilities as a front-end switch, as well as high-precision synchronization as a Grandmaster clock for synchronization with RAN components.
IP Infusion’s carrier-class disaggregated network solutions enable network operators to create innovative services and accelerate new revenue streams. Its validated network operating system, coupled with choosing the best hardware, supports a wide range of network use cases. With IP Infusion’s turnkey solutions that integrate hardware and software as well as advanced support services, network operators can seamlessly migrate to an end-to-end disaggregated network solution that delivers total cost. of inferior possession.
The new 5G radio requires tighter timing synchronization and latency assurance than the previous generation to ensure customers won’t experience dropped calls, delayed or unreliable service. IP Infusion’s network proven synchronization solution eliminates the need for separate hardware for the clock master function in the network with high reliability and performance.
O-RAN Global PlugFest 2021, the third global O-RAN testing and integration event, was held to strengthen the Open RAN ecosystem and supported its global belief in Open Radio Access Networks (RANs) and intelligent. During the PlugFests, which took place at various locations in Europe, Asia and North America, OcNOS-based solutions underwent rigorous performance and interoperability tests with O-RAN partners. The PlugFest sites were hosted by Tier 1 telecommunications operators, including AT&T, Verizon, Telefonica, Bharti Airtel, and Auray Technologies. This year’s PlugFest proved the advanced maturity of Open Fronthaul (OFH) implementations. Interoperability has been achieved between many vendors in different network configurations, classes of base stations, OFH profiles or RU / CU-DU product combinations.
IP Infusion has participated in O-RAN PlugFests in India (hosted by Bharti Airtel), USA (hosted by Verizon and AT&T), Taiwan (co-hosted by Auray Technology Corp.) and Europe (co-hosted by Telefonica). IP Infusion conducted interoperability tests with STL, ASOCS, Keysight, Viavi, Intel-Capgemini and EXFO to validate the OcNOS-based disaggregated network solution.
“IP Infusion is pleased to be part of the momentum created by the O-RAN Global PlugFest 2021 which promotes open architecture in a multi-vendor environment. Our solution provides a critical transport link in the front-end transport application, enabling network operators to improve the efficiency of RAN deployments and operations. By working with the O-RAN community, we will accelerate the development of technologies with open standard interfaces and create a stronger RAN supplier ecosystem, ”said Atsushi Ogata, President and CEO of IP Infusion.
“By leveraging IP Infusion’s OcNOS network operating system and Keysight Open RAN Architect solutions, we were able to verify the IP Infusion Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG),” said Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president and Managing Director of Keysight’s Network Access Group. “Our collaboration with IP Infusion demonstrates the value of joining forces at industry events to verify the integration of multi-vendor network functions, resulting in robust 4G and 5G networks based on O-RAN specifications. . ”
OcNOS is the industry’s first comprehensive modular scalable network operating system for open white box networking solutions offering advanced capabilities that include extensive switching and routing support ranging from Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). ), PTP (Precision Timing Protocol) and API / Protocols for SDN (Software Defined Network). OcNOS supports a hybrid network, centralized or distributed; scalable and modular high performance network; and a robust data plane built on merchant silicon.
