Mavenir, a US-based manufacturer of telecom equipment, announced on Wednesday that production of 2G, 4G, and 5G Open RAN for its OpenBeam portfolio, suitable for both Indian and international frequency bands, has begun in India.
The effort is in accordance with the Center’s goal of an independent India (Atmanirbhar Bharat).
Massive MIMO, mmWave, and multi-band remote radio heads (RRHs), which enable increased network capacity as the network expands, are just a few of the important demands imposed on networks today, according to Mavenir’s OpenBeam portfolio of cost-effective, intelligent radios.
According to a statement, the OpenBeam Open RAN radio solutions are available across all frequency bands and may be used for a wide variety of use cases, including enterprises and public settings throughout urban or rural regions.
“We are excited to announce manufacturing of ORAN complaint 2G/4G/5G radios in India to serve Indian and global customers. The forwarding-looking policies of GOI have been the driving force for Make for India,” said Sanjay Bakaya, Country Head- India & Regional Vice President- India & South Asia at Mavenir
It was also mentioned that all radios have a modular design and rely on tried-and-true technology to provide MIMO beamforming and multiple band requirements.
The Pardeep Kohli-led telecom business, which supports Open RAN, has just obtained $95 million through public debt to support its investigation and creation of interoperable networking technologies.
Mavenir now manufactures equipment in India, joining European telecom equipment providers Ericsson and Nokia in doing so.
At its Chennai factory, Nokia started manufacturing the Nokia AirScale mMIMO solution, the next-generation 5G hardware, in December 2020. The 5G New Radio was first produced in India by a Finn.
On the other hand, Ericsson is making investments in India through the Center’s production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme for the production of telecom equipment. According to the Swedish corporation, its production plant in Pune, which it operates through its contract manufacturing partner Jabil, is adaptable and extendable to meet the needs of both domestic and international markets.
