Telco Cloud for Open vRAN
NEC collaborates with industry leading vendors to develop and provide a tailored virtualization platform according to the various requirements of the RAN and its site plan. The architecture comprises COTS hardware, broadly used virtualization software that conform with O-RAN specifications.
Proficiency in both physical and virtual networks is one of the essential requirements for a successful system integration. For instance, a distributed compute architecture is adopted to maximize efficiency of resource usage, and a hardware accelerator is implemented to maximize performance of radio network processing whilst minimizing latency and jitter. NEC has expertise in the virtual/IT aspect as well as specific physical aspects such as front-haul required for fine-tuning the total network.
