Dali Wireless, which focuses on wireless fronthaul solutions for virtualized Radio Access Networks, and software-centric 4G and 5G technology company Amarisoft, say they have completed initial interoperability validation of an end-to-end vRAN system that is centered around Dali’s vFI and Amarisoft’s 100% eNodeB software.
The two companies said that interoperability and co-marketing initiatives will bring new options for enterprises and mobile network operators deploying in-building cellular solutions.
The companies’ combined efforts, which are initially focused on 4G, are planned to evolve to 5G and incorporate Amarisoft’s virtual gNodeB software, which already supports both Standalone and NonStandalone 5G modes. The system also includes radio heads from Dali’s eco-system partner Gigatera Communications.
“We are pleased that Amarisoft is on our growing list of virtual BBU partners for Dali’s innovative in-building wireless solution based on vFI,” said Albert Lee, Dali Wireless’s founder and CEO. “This collaboration advances our mission of making it easier for customers to deploy open, cost-effective and elastic RAN solutions. Amarisoft’s 4G LTE and 5G NR software suites, based on common, off the shelf servers, are designed from the ground up to be cloud native and scalable. Amarisoft’s offerings compliment Dali’s virtual fronthaul and in-building solutions.”
“We are pleased to be compatible with Dali’s solution enabling an Open RAN architecture by connecting any vendor’s baseband products to any other vendor’s radio units,” said Franck Spinelli, Amarisoft’s CEO. “Thus it is going to be easier for Dali’s customers to benefit from our latest software BBUs in 4G and 5G.”
Amarisoft’s technology accelerates the process of building products like eNodeB, gNodeB, 4G/5G Core network, NB-IoT and v-RAN based solutions. With more than 600 customers around the globe, the company addresses a wide range of customers including telecoms equipment manufacturers, operators, telecoms integrators, government agencies, universities and R&D labs.
Dali’s fully digital wireless signal routing solution boosts in-building and outdoor coverage and capacity by eliminating interference and maximizing spectrum usage. The company’s patented virtual Fronthaul Interface (vFI) is an intelligent aggregator-router and key enabler of RAN virtualization elevating networks to 5G readiness.
