Mavenir announced the availability of its 4G Open RAN small cell for outdoor deployments, expanding the MAVair radio and access portfolio of small cells for telecoms.
Mavenir’s outdoor small cell addresses a need for outdoor small cells supporting both distributed and centralized Open RAN architectures.
The outdoor small cell from Mavenir supports both Split 2 and S1 interfaces. Engineers can configure remotely for full deployment flexibility and upgradability. It is effective in areas where coverage and capacity from the CSPs macro is not available. Ideal deployments include rural and remote locations, sites which are constrained by size, power, backhaul, and planning restrictions.
“This 4G outdoor small cell is the precursor for a completely new line of 4G and 5G Open RAN-based small cell products with integrated DU, as well as Multi RAT radio access solutions in general,” said Mavenir’s Aniruddho Basu, SVP and GM of Emerging Business.
