Altiostar has a proven track record of delivering open vRAN solutions to help our customers succeed. Some examples include:
Altiostar has entered into a multi-year agreement with DISH to deliver its O-RAN compliant solution for DISH’s nationwide cloud-native 5G network buildout, the first of its kind in the U.S. The Altiostar solution will provide openness, modularity, agility and scalability to DISH, enabling faster deployment of new 5G services for consumers and businesses. As the new nationwide mobile carrier in the U.S., DISH will benefit from a software-defined open platform to build a differentiated 5G network.
With its headquarters in New Delhi and operations spread across South Asia and Africa, Bharti Airtel is first operator in India to deploy vRAN-based 4G network, leveraging Altiostar’s open vRAN solution across multiple major cities in India. The solution has 5G ready software, and would provide seamless evolution to 5G using the same architecture.
Soon to be the newest and most innovative mobile network operator in Japan, Rakuten Mobile Network, Inc. is currently building the world’s first end-to-end fully virtualized, cloud-native mobile network using Altiostar’s open vRAN technology. The new Rakuten mobile network will be launched entirely on the cloud, with end-to-end automation and programmable infrastructure, ensuring stability, scalability and agility, as well as effectively managing costs.
Both Telefónica and Altiostar were early members of the O-RAN Alliance, an industry consortium formed in 2018 to foster open architecture and standardized interfaces that are critical for building and deploying next-generation wireless infrastructure. Telefónica is a global telecom provider with operations in 14 countries and this transformation is key to its long-term success. Altiostar and Telefonica will work together and collaboration to drive open RAN technologies.
The open vRAN solution provided by Altiostar was tested in the Turin TILab laboratories, demonstrating the first wireless access implementation providing centralization and virtualization of radio signals, even with Ethernet fronthauling. The test showed the efficiency of this technology, even for long-distance fronthauling connections. TIM and Altiostar tested the configuration with radio modules installed in Rome and servers in Turin.
GCI selects Altiostar for its LTE-Advanced network deployment and to lay the foundation for 5G and IoT. For more than 12 months, GCI conducted field trials in Anchorage and Fairbanks with the solution from Altiostar, and the contract award is the result of this validation of the Open vRAN technology. The solution leverages the latest innovations in the networking industry such as carrier-grade OpenStack and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
