RAN Compute

Portfolio

The Ericsson Radio System RAN Compute portfolio offers the versatility and flexibility required for all site solutions. The portfolio boasts indoor and outdoor units supporting macro and micro sites, and Radio Gateways for CPRI to eCPRI conversion, bringing packet fronthaul to legacy Radios equipped with the CPRI interface.

Ericsson has used tailor made System on a Chip (SoC) for RAN Compute processing for many years. The constant improvements of this technology have given Ericsson tremendous improvements of the RAN Compute portfolio when it comes to flexibility, capacity, and power efficiency.

The Ericsson RAN Compute products powered by Ericsson Silicon provides the following CSP values:

  • Smallest footprint: Majority of configurations are supported in one rack unit (1U)
  • Lowest...

RAN Compute Evolution

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Network traffic continues to grow exponentially with more and more 5G and fixed wireless access (FWA) subscriptions, and the demands on uplink continue to increase. To ensure that the scaling of uplink keeps pace with this demand, the next wave of 5G deployments will focus on expanding mid-band TDD (time division duplex) and improving performance by utilizing Massive MIMO FDD (frequency division duplex) or radios with 8 receivers.  

This will make sure that mobile broadband (MBB) performance is maintained while preparing the network for 5G Advanced applications such as extended reality (XR) that require greater uplink capacities.

Communications service providers (CSPs) need to densify their networks in both distributed and centralized deployments while minimizing their site footprints and energy consumption. Added to this, automation and the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) will be key to maximizing operational and energy efficiency as CSPs are looking to reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO).

As part of this launch, we are enabling CSPs to utilize the full value of 5G, to build for 5G Advanced and open networks, as well as helping them towards their Net Zero goals.
