Parsippany, New Jersey, U.S., Dec. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE American: WTT) has announced that its CommAgility brand is part of a consortium that has received funding from the UK government to develop 5G infrastructure for an Open RAN project. CommAgility is part of the 5G DU-Volution project, which will evolve distributed unit (DU) devices to meet emerging industry requirements including reduced power, smaller footprint, improved spectral efficiency and lower latency . CommAgility was chosen for the project due to its capabilities in 5G PHY and stack hardware and software, and it will bring its extensive 5G baseband processing software portfolio and expertise to enable the development of the DU.
The 5G DU-Volution project aims to integrate products into a DU component ready for deployment in 5G networks. The consortium is led by ADVA Optical Networking. Alongside CommAgility, the other partners are AccelerComm, British Telecom, York University and Scotland5GCentre. The consortium partners received the funding as one of the winning teams in the UK‘s Future Radio Access Network Competition (FRANC).
The UK government recently announced a joint ambition, with mobile network operators, for 35% of UK mobile network traffic to be carried on open and interoperable RAN architectures by 2030. Open RAN (O-RAN ) divides the equipment needed for the Radio Access Network (RAN) into several components, including the DU. This undertakes much of the signal processing to convert radio signals into data that can be transported over optical and wired networks to the core network.
“Open RAN is a key enabler in the development of 5G infrastructure and the creation of flexible and efficient 5G networks,” said Edward Young, senior vice president and general manager of CommAgility. “We are proud to be part of the 5G DU-Volution project, and look forward to working closely with our partners.”
