“Open RAN architecture and virtualisation are key to building software-centric networks to meet the exploding demands of networks of tomorrow. The joint solution of STL and ASOCS will empower Mobile Network Operators to build best in class networks and enable them to build vendor-neutral, autonomous mobile networks using 5G radio, SDN, NFV and AI Technologies,” added Dr Anand Agarwal.

The future of RAN is evolving to commercial off-the-shelf IT hardware and Open Standards compliant radios which will allow carriers and their customers to enjoy new levels of performance and reliability for delivering mission-critical tasks and localized private networks. It will also allow them to derive benefits of advanced technologies involving AI and analytics across all mobile use cases.

“We are thrilled to partner with STL. Their staunch focus on technology and strong customer relationships will go a long way in delivering flexible and innovative solutions to customers. We will utilise the new funding to accelerate and expand our vRAN 5G portfolio. Now is the right time for mobile operators and their enterprise customers to have an easy, fast way to leverage and get more out of their existing hardware, while enjoying superb 4G and 5G networks that include network slicing capabilities, comprehensive insights on network usage and new levels of control and flexibility, all in a single software stack. As we combine ASOCS and STL solutions, we believe this would be a real turning point for our industry.” said Gilad Garon, ASOCS’ CEO.
