Aarna Networks signals support for O-RAN standards and collaboration to disaggregate towards the digital edge.
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aarna Networks, which offers a zero touch management software solution for edge computing and 5G applications to enterprise customers and communications services providers, has officially joined the O-RAN Alliance, signaling strong support for O-RAN standards, and the interoperability and collaboration required to disaggregate the final frontier of networks towards the digital edge.
Aarna has been active in the O-RAN Software Community (O-RAN SC) – a collaboration between the O-RAN Alliance and Linux Foundation focused on enabling the development of open source software and modular, open, intelligent, efficient, and agile disaggregated radio access networks. Community participation has enabled Aarna to help integrate O-RAN with the Linux Foundation ONAP project and to leverage O-RAN A1 and O1 interfaces in its AMCOP O-RAN SMO SaaS offering – the first commercially available open source SMO. Current work and the future roadmap includes the O2 Interface and the Non-RT RIC.
Founded in 2018, the O-RAN Alliance has grown to 300+ members, including global telecom operators, vendors, and research and academic institutions with the aim of promoting open mobile networks. By defining the O-RAN architecture and interfaces, it’s building an open and interoperable ecosystem.
“Given Aarna’s focus on standards-based, open source 5G innovation, joining the O-RAN Alliance was an easy decision,” said Amar Kapadia, co-founder and CEO at Aarna Networks. “We look forward to further leveraging O-RAN standards and code in our products and contributing via the O-RAN-SC to help foster open source project integration and collaboration toward a fully disaggregated, interoperable 5G future.”
