Tht 5G VRAN Use Case
To maximize the benefits of virtual RAN (vRAN), operators need an underlying cloud platform designed to support network-wide configuration and management of far edge applications and infrastructure. Cloud Platform is especially well suited for use cases such as vRAN with low latency and high reliability requirements.
Cloud Platform also delivers a unified edge cloud management and network-wide orchestration that provides the flexibility needed to scale across small-footprint, low-cost/power single node servers up to full data center configurations.
