A global Network Equipment Provider (NEP) was facing a challenge in improving the efficiency of software development and maintenance of Radio Unit products. The transformation to 5G and the increasing device connectivity introduced new 5G radio frequency bands, antenna types, and varying physical radio unit packages. This led to an increase in the number of required Radio Unit products. The NEP wanted to ensure a faster time-to-market and efficient software maintenance for the Radio Unit portfolio.
About The Customer
The customer is a global Network Equipment Provider (NEP) who is extending its Open RAN portfolio. The NEP was looking for a solution to improve the efficiency of software development and maintenance of Radio Unit products due to the transformation to 5G and the increasing device connectivity. The NEP wanted to ensure a faster time-to-market and efficient software maintenance for the Radio Unit portfolio. The software development contribution helped the NEP to capture more market shares in the growing Open RAN market.
The solution involved defining a modular software architecture that would support software development and maintenance for the NEP's portfolio of Radio Unit products. The software architecture for Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) Radio Unit was based on a service-oriented approach that decoupled software modules as much as possible. The team also delivered software development of the modules that were generic to all Radio Unit products, as well as some product-specific development work. The solution was modular and based on service-oriented architecture enabling a high degree of re-use. The team also took on roles in project management, program coordination, and test coordination.
