Movandi and Mavenir have partnered on deploying the 5G mmWAVE Open Radio Access Network (RAN) for a smart city in Thailand.
Mavenir’s Open RAN radio units (RU) for the smart city private network include Movandi’s mmWave RF ICs and phased array modules (PAM) that together enable an ultra-low power RU solution delivering 5G performance in a smaller antenna array.
“Our technology partnership with Movandi enables us to deliver robust, high-performance 5G mmWave RU solutions that will help drive deployment of O-RAN based infrastructure,” said Pardeep Kohli, President and CEO of Mavenir.
Movandi’s mmWave technology enables the multi-gigabit speeds, low latency and reliability required by 5G smart city networks operating tens of thousands of IoT sensors, smart poles, drones, and other connected devices that need ultra-fast data uplinks to the cloud for real-time analysis and smart city management.
“By joining forces with Mavenir on 5G mmWave Open RAN solutions, we’re delivering innovative mmWave silicon and software technology to enable the first 5G-powered smart city in Thailand, showcasing the future of our increasingly cloud-connected digital world,” said Maryam Rofougaran, CEO and Co-founder of Movandi.
