‘Mavenir and Intel Team Up to Enhance Performance and Power Efficiency in 4G and 5G Open vRAN Solution’

Mavenir, a leading cloud-native network infrastructure provider shaping the future of networks, has unveiled its state-of-the-art Open vRAN solution powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost. This innovative solution delivers a cloud-native, high-performance, and energy-efficient option for latency-sensitive and compute-intensive mobile network applications. By leveraging Intel’s latest processors, Mavenir has further optimized its solution offerings, driving Open RAN momentum across three generations of Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

The Open vRAN solution by Mavenir, supported by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost, provides exceptional performance, functionality, and integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications for next-generation 4G and 5G networks. Through a longstanding technology collaboration with Intel, Mavenir has been able to develop more efficient and cost-effective RAN solutions, leveraging the increased processing power and capacity offered by Intel’s processors to reduce the number of cores or servers needed per cell site.

Mavenir’s Open vRAN solution includes both the virtualized distributed Unit (vDU) and the centralized unit (vCU), supporting all mobile network generations (2G, 4G, 5G) and offering complete baseband unit (BBU) functionality. This cloud-native solution is easily deployable on Intel architecture-based private, hybrid, or public clouds. The vDU incorporates Intel’s FlexRAN reference software, enabling flexible and programmable control of the wireless infrastructure.

The integration of vRAN acceleration features in 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost eliminates the need for an external acceleration card, delivering up to a 2x capacity increase with an additional 20% power savings compared to the previous generation processors for applications like massive MIMO (mMIMO). This integrated solution allows Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to deploy cloud-native, energy-efficient, and AI-driven RAN solutions at a significantly lower cost.

Mavenir’s Open vRAN solution has been instrumental in advancing Open RAN technology and making it a mainstream consideration for operators expanding their 4G and 5G networks. The collaboration between Mavenir and Intel sets the stage for significant advancements in next-generation O-RANs, including energy savings, RAN slice assurance, AI/ML-powered SLAs, expanded RAN capacity, and optimized functionality splits.

BG Kumar, President of Access Networks, Platforms, and Digital Enablement for Mavenir, emphasized the significance of the collaboration with Intel in driving high-performance and sustainable Open vRAN solutions for 4G and 5G networks. He highlighted how Mavenir’s integrated solution, powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors with Intel vRAN Boost, offers CSPs worldwide the ability to deploy cost-effective RAN infrastructure built on cutting-edge technology.

Cristina Rodriguez, Vice President and General Manager of the Wireless Access Networking Division at Intel, noted that Mavenir’s solution leverages the best features of Intel’s 4th Gen Intel Xeon platform to provide operators with a flexible solution with advanced functionalities to meet the diverse needs of both greenfield and brownfield operators.

Overall, Mavenir’s commitment to driving innovation in network solutions, particularly in the realm of Open RAN technology, showcases their dedication to empowering operators with intelligent, automated, and programmable networks.
