Parallel Wireless Brings Largest Ecosystem of Leading-Edge Open RAN Partners to MWC Barcelona 2022
Feb 3, 2022
NASHUA, N.H. – Parallel Wireless, Inc., the leading U.S.-based O-RAN Alliance compliant, cloud-native Open RAN company, enabling ALL Gs – 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, has created the largest ecosystem of partners, and plans to demonstrate the latest innovations in Open RAN technology at Mobile World Congress 2022 in Barcelona, Spain at the Fira Gran in Hall 5, booth 5C61 from February 28 – March 3, 2022.
Open Radio Access Networks (RAN) has gained tremendous momentum over the past few years and will continue to do so in 2022 and beyond. According to Dell’Oro Group, cumulative Open RAN revenue from 2020 to 2025 could be as high as $15 billion, with Open RAN revenues accounting for more than 10% of the overall RAN market by 2025. 5G technology adoption and enabling network deployments and upgrades at lower costs are driving more operators to choose an Open RAN approach for their network architecture.
As Open RAN deployments take off the ecosystem of partners in every aspect of the network from radio, server, RAN Intelligent Controllers (RIC), the core and more is set to expand. Open RAN drives greater vendor diversity and supply chain security. With interoperable hardware and software Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are getting the most flexible, easily scalable, cost-efficient networks, enabling state-of-the-art broadband communications.
Our broad ecosystem of best-in-class partners includes:
- Most mature O-RAN split 7.2 Radio Units (RUs) to provide 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G Access. Our leading- edge radio suppliers include Comba Telecom and GigaTera Communications.
- Highest quality server partners include Supermicro (NYSE: SMCI), HPe (NYSE: HPE), and Dell (NYSE: DELL) all utilizing Intel (NYSE: INTC) x86 processing power.
- Our newest partnership is with Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) for their world-class RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) to host different xApp/rApps.
- And for state-of-the-art core network solutions we are partnering with Athonet and with Microsoft (NYSE: MSFT).
Together with a best-in-class broad ecosystem of partners, Parallel Wireless can enable MNOs to deploy leading edge networks, while reducing costs and complexity and growing revenues. Parallel Wireless has deployed Open RAN networks with operators from across the globe such as Axiata Group, IpT, Vodafone, Etisalat, Millicom, BT EE and many more.
The Future of RAN is Open is the Parallel Wireless theme for this year’s event. Visit us in Hall 5, Booth 5C61, to experience the power of Open RAN and wireless innovation.
