Radisys Corporation, a global leader of open telecom solutions, announced that it is contributing its Open 5G Software seed code to the O-RAN Alliance for its 5G NR Stack Reference Architecture.
Radisys’ contribution will help accelerate the O-RAN ecosystem and enable the delivery of open APIs and open architectures that mobile operators can use to accelerate their 5G network build-outs, while benefitting from reduced costs, improving network efficiencies, and enabling a multi-vendor ecosystem.
“China Mobile is a founding member of the O-RAN Alliance and co-chair of WG8, and we are dedicated to bringing openness and intelligence to the 5G RAN built with virtualized network elements, open hardware and open APIs,” said Dr. Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist, CMCC.
“The Alliance’s success depends on key contributions from our members, both mobile operators and vendors. China Mobile is glad to see key O-RAN members including Radisys have begun actively contributing seed codes.
“We are also committed to contributing code to the O-RAN SC community. China Mobile believes that the open source RAN software will play an important role in promoting the prosperity of an open ecosystem.”
“We share a common vision with our WG8 co-chairs – China Mobile, AT&T and Intel – to accelerate RAN evolution through the principles of disaggregation and openness, while laying the groundwork for 5G networks that are being built today,” said Neeraj Patel, vice president and general manager, Software and Services, Radisys.
“We thank our mobile operator co-chairs for welcoming us as co-chair, re-affirming our own commitment to the open telecom revolution, and we call on other vendors and operators to make their own contributions to this important work.”
