TEWKSBURY, Mass. & MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altiostar, the pioneer in virtual RAN (vRAN) technology, and Dali Wireless, Inc., a leader in wireless fronthaul innovation for vRAN, announced today a close collaboration to bring vRAN to in-building wireless systems. The joint solution, which is scheduled for trial with tier 1 operators, enables the mobile telecommunication industry to maximize the usage of their existing wireless infrastructure, while providing them with a seamless migration path to vRAN in order to support future 5G technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT). The complete solution will be demonstrated in Dali Wireless’ booth #6J60 at Mobile World Congress 2017.
Altiostar’s field-proven vRAN technology is the industry’s first virtual RAN. It solves capacity-crunch and reduces customer-churn utilizing the operator’s existing spectrum and pre-deployed equipment. Furthermore, Altiostar vRAN connects the baseband to the head-end equipment over any wired, fiber or wireless Ethernet transport, and adds powerful Network Function Virtualization (NFV) capability as well as Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) functionality to the network using existing deployed equipment and spectrum assets.
Dali’s virtual Fronthaul Solution includes the patented virtual Fronthaul Interface (vFI™) and low-power remote radio transceivers. It virtualizes the routing of the radio resources in the network, transforming the fronthaul from a hard-wired, fixed point-to-point system, into an elastic multipoint-to-multipoint network, eliminating the need for overprovisioning to meet peak demand. Built on Software Defined Networking (SDN), Dali’s Solution works with any wireless technology or transport, adapts to any topology, and easily scales to add MIMO, new operators, new frequency bands, and IP pass through.
The combination of Altiostar’s vRAN technology and Dali Wireless’ virtual Fronthaul Solution creates a platform that transcends the capabilities associated with traditional DAS to deliver a highly dynamic and adaptable network. This integrated platform enables maximum spectral efficiency, accelerates network deployment, dynamically adjusts capacity and maximizes bandwidth usage efficiency, based on users’ wireless traffic, providing the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
“Dali Wireless is widely recognized as a developer of cutting-edge products and solutions,” said Ashraf Dahod, President and CEO of Altiostar. “By combining Altiostar vRAN and Dali’s Fronthaul Solution, mobile operators can benefit from a complete solution that enables network virtualization of in-building wireless systems.”
“Altiostar is an excellent vRAN partner for Dali,” said Albert Lee, CEO of Dali Wireless. “Their unique next-generation approach to vRAN transport using Ethernet and our Fronthaul Solution for vRAN align perfectly to create a compelling solution for operators, integrators and enterprises preparing for 5G.”
Altiostar is the pioneer in virtualized RAN (vRAN) with Ethernet fronthaul. Its unique eNodeB solution is designed to improve quality of experience of the mobile network, enhance spectral efficiency and reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Altiostar has developed a wide portfolio of eNodeB solutions for all the major LTE frequencies and for all deployment scenarios. The vRAN solution is the foundation for evolution towards 5G. It provides elastic scalability, low-risk innovation, with a common NFV+SDN enabled platform. This provides significant cost savings, using commercial-off-the-shelf hardware and LTE-Advanced feature capability, based on C-RAN architecture. vRAN offers the most efficient platform to make Mobile Edge Computing a reality. www.altiostar.com or follow us on Twitter @altiostar.
