Open RAN and VRAN
Work Better with Wind River

Here are 11 reasons why the largest global carriers deploy with Wind River.

 

The Things We Do Better

The first and only proven solution

The first and only proven solution

Wind River® provides the only commercially deployed 5G Open RAN solution in the world. This gives a significant go-to-market advantage for CSPs looking to deliver new services on the edge.

The only scalable and distributed cloud for true carrier scale

The only scalable and distributed cloud for true carrier scale

The edge-to-core infrastructure is capable of supporting and managing large-scale, geographically disperse deployments ranging from a single node up to thousands.

The only field-proven, partner-integrated architecture

The only field-proven, partner-integrated architecture

Wind River offers the only field-proven partner integration with the leading RAN application and hardware providers. This gives CSPs near complete choice in how the build their 5G vRAN/O-RAN environment over time, as their needs change.

The only end-to-end solution in the market

The only end-to-end solution in the market

The complete solution provides operational tools hardened by actual network deployment for Wind River Studio, with integrated container management, AI/ML analytics, and automation and orchestration. In a complex environment, end-to-end solutions ensure efficiency and effectiveness as all the components work seamlessly.

Architected to reduce friction and increase ease of operation

Architected to reduce friction and increase ease of operation

The offering includes features such as zero-touch provisioning and single-pane-of-glass management to reduce friction and complexity.

The highest vRAN/O-RAN reliability

The highest vRAN/O-RAN reliability

Wind River offers a high-availability solution exceeding five nines reliability in production deployments, with features such as live software upgrades to ensure that the network stays up-to-date without service downtime. It allows you to benefit from the innovation advantages of vRAN/O-RAN with the comfort inherent in traditional RAN environments.

Designed to be cost efficient for a greener world

Designed to be cost efficient for a greener world

The ability to run on a single node, on dual node for high availability, and on as little as two cores (soon a single core) frees up more compute power for revenue-generating applications. The solution enables up to 30% TCO reduction with Open RAN vs. traditional RAN.

Leveraging a customer-first open source approach

Leveraging a customer-first open source approach

Wind River Studio Cloud Platform is commercially supported StarlingX, a complete cloud-native distributed edge cloud infrastructure. It is designed to deliver customer needs first and to constantly infuse community improvements into the experience.

Built for the future, operational today

Built for the future, operational today

Studio enables brownfield and Greenfield deployments by supporting VMs and containers within a single system. It also supports public, private, and hybrid cloud implementations, enabling you to run and manage your entire edge network.

Industry-leading low latency and throughput

Industry-leading low latency and throughput

The best deterministic low latency possible and 50% more throughput compared to the competition ensures that URLLC and eMBB use cases are successful. Plus, lower latency enables more efficient coverage through RU/DU pooling.

Setting the standard
