Silicom | March 08, 2021
Silicom Ltd. a main supplier of systems administration and information framework arrangements, today reported the dispatch of its O-RAN agreeable, Evenstar Distributed Unit (DU) in a joint effort with Facebook Connectivity and other Evenstar accomplices.
The Evenstar DU tends to the developing portable administrator interest for best-in-breed, unbundled DUs that meet 3GPP and O-RAN determinations to encourage the carry out of OpenRAN 4G and 5G organizations.
"We are delighted to be selected by the Evenstar program to introduce our unique DU to a market awaiting OpenRAN-compliant solutions," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's CEO. "Through this collaboration, we will provide operators with groundbreaking functionality that takes their network flexibility and performance to a new level – such as advanced offloads and time synchronization - at highly competitive price points."
Dispatched a year ago as a team with various industry players, the Evenstar program means to speed up the reception of OpenRAN arrangements by contributing RAN reference engineering to the Telecom Infra Project's OpenRAN Project Group. The idea driving OpenRAN is to empower administrators to decouple key organization segments, including RUs (Radio Units), DUs (Distribution Units) and CUs (Central Units), empowering most awesome aspect breed parts from different sellers to be joined into networks for prevalent execution. This methodology is key for driving advancement and decreasing organization costs.
"We are excited to collaborate with Silicom and other ecosystem partners to build Evenstar components for 4G and 5G networks," commented Jaydeep Ranade, Director of Wireless Engineering for Facebook Connectivity. "A healthy ecosystem of OpenRAN vendors plays a huge role in accelerating the deployment of simplified, flexible and efficient RAN technologies."
