Altiostar Teams with Industry’s Most Innovative Companies For a Look Into The Future of Open RAN at MWC
Ecosystem is critical for the success of OpenRAN because it makes it possible for operators to deploy an innovative, flexible cloud-based OpenRAN solution. At MWC, Altiostar has partnered with some of the industry’s most innovative ecosystem vendors to demonstrate joint solutions and provide information on using Open RAN in a variety of deployment scenarios.
MWC will be one of the first big technology conferences staged in Europe since the start of the pandemic. Even with some of the pandemic restrictions ending, MWC will be presented as a hybrid event with both live and online components. Show organizers expect to maintain the attendance of past shows with over 100,000 participants from 200+ countries spread across the digital and live events.
With this kind of attendance, MWC will still be the place where the industry gathers to advance the impact of wireless technologies for a thriving society.
Here are some of the ways Altiostar is participating in MWC with our partners to showcase the future of Open RAN and 5G:
•VMWare and Altiostar collaboration with Intel
Hosted on Intel Network Builders, VMWare and Altiostar demonstrates how Altiostar’s Open vRAN solution runs on VMware Telco Cloud Platform to disaggregate the RAN into a flexible, high-performance stack based on COTS hardware. Watch the video and read the other materials here:
•Collaborating to Accelerate 5G vRAN Deployments – TelecomTV webinar
In this TelecomTV webinar, Anil Bhandari, VP of Product Management at Altiostar, along with Intel and other collaborators, discusses all things vRAN including the myths vs. realities, value chain evolution and successes from early carrier trials.

We also joined with other ecosystem partners and industry groups to make news at MWC:
- Altiostar is part of Qualcomm’s announcement of the industry’s first Release 16 5G Open RAN platform for small cells. Altiostar has partnered with Qualcomm on the Rakuten mobile network in Japan and is working with the company on Open RAN for small cells.https:// .qualcomm.com/news/releases/2021/06/28/qualcomm-unveils-industrys-first-release-16-5g-open-ran-platform-small
- Altiostar has joined as a new member in the 5G for 12 GHz Coalition. With this announcement, Altiostar is working to expand available spectrum by unleashing the power of the 12 GHz band for terrestrial 5G. https://5gfor12ghz.com/5gfor-12ghz-coalition-momentum-grows-with-32-members/
There’s a lot to be said about Open RAN and we’ve teamed up with some industry leaders to provide guidance, ideas, and answer questions. We hope you enjoy MWCB and can engage with some of the information presented above.
