Parallel Wireless and SUSE Unite for Enhanced Open RAN

LinkedIn Google+ Pinterest Tumblr

In a significant move for the telecommunications sector, Parallel Wireless has partnered with SUSE to integrate the SUSE Adaptive Telco Infrastructure Platform (ATIP) into its Open RAN solutions. This collaboration marks a pivotal step in enhancing the flexibility, security, and cost-effectiveness of managing and processing data in network operations.

The innovative approach leverages Kubernetes for its exceptional scalability, automation, and resource efficiency – attributes that are essential for modern, cloud-based application development. SUSE’s ATIP extends these benefits, providing a comprehensive package for managing telco-optimized infrastructure.

This integration has empowered Parallel Wireless to advance its Radio Access Network (RAN) capabilities. Its suite, including the virtualized Baseband Unit (vBBU), the Real-Time Radio Intelligent Controller (RIC), and Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) functions, now utilizes Kubernetes-based technology. This strategic move enables Open RAN-based solutions to adapt to diverse deployment environments, whether on traditional servers or in the cloud.

Netanel Gabizon, Parallel Wireless’s Chief Product Officer, emphasized the strategic nature of this partnership. He highlighted its role in enhancing scalability across different hardware platforms, which aligns perfectly with service providers’ evolving needs. The implementation of zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) further streamlines large-scale deployments.

This alliance enhances Parallel Wireless’s diverse hardware and chipset offerings, integrating them with a leading cloud and Kubernetes platform. The outcome is a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers, offering more platform choices and flexibility in deployment.

Thomas Di Giacomo, Chief Technology and Product Officer at SUSE, praised Parallel Wireless’s innovations in Open RAN. He noted that this partnership is in sync with SUSE’s commitment to projects like Project Sylva, aimed at building more agile and flexible networks for operators.

Parallel Wireless’s GreenRAN™ solutions and hardware-independent technology are poised to deliver substantial TCO savings and energy optimization. The company’s broad range of 2G/3G/4G/5G Macro RAN solutions across various deployment scenarios aims to reduce operating costs while enhancing spectral efficiency. The collaboration with SUSE is crucial in achieving these ambitious goals, signaling a transformative era in the telecom industry.
