Parallel Wireless, Inc, one of the leading US-based O-RAN Alliance compliant, cloud-native Open RAN company, enabling ALL Gs – 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G, is planning to demonstrate the latest innovations in Open RAN technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022 in Barcelona, Spain
The MWC Barcelona will run from 28 February to 3 March 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 US$15bn, with Open RAN revenues accounting for more than 10% of the overall RAN market by 2025.
The 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.
Parallel Wireless aims to 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.
Eugina Jordan, vice-president of marketing at Parallel Wireless, will be a keynote speaker on 2 March as part of the MWC 22 5G Connect Theme, session titled, “Open RAN: The Next Step.”
And Zahid Ghadialy, senior director technology and innovation strategy at Parallel Wireless, will be participating on the panel session on 28 February to discuss, “Open RAN: A Vision of 5G and The Future of 6G.”
Keith Johnson, president at Parallel Wireless, said, “The telecom industry is demanding networks that are open and flexible so that they can reduce deployment and maintenance costs yet maintain quality of service. We are pleased to be working with a broad, open ecosystem of disaggregated RAN solutions using vendor-neutral hardware and software-defined technology based on open interfaces and community-developed standards. The Future of RAN is Open, and we are excited to lead the transformation in the wireless industry.”
