Abdu Mudesir, Chief Technology Officer at Deutsche Telekom

Mavenir, a Network Software Provider building the future of networks with cloud-native solutions that run on any cloud, and Deutsche Telekom announced today that Mavenir has been chosen for Deutsche Telekom’s Open RAN deployment in a country of its European footprint. Mavenir will be delivering its OpenBeam massive MIMO radios as well as 3rd party O-RAN based Radio Units (O-RU) for open Fronthaul. In addition, Mavenir will also act as an end-to-end system integrator for that deployment.

Mavenir’s Open cloud-native RAN solution is based on fully containerized microservices allowing it to be deployed easily on any cloud infrastructure. Mavenir’s Open RAN-compliant solution works on open interfaces, and it further disaggregates the RAN architecture into Distributed Unit (DU) and Centralized Unit (CU).

Industry sources added that these containerized network functions are running on Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) hardware and are designed to support multiple Fronthaul splits simultaneously – making the Open RAN solution an ideal choice for a vendor-agnostic and future-proof Radio network architecture strategy.

Abdu Mudesir, Chief Technology Officer at Deutsche Telekom, stated: “Deutsche Telekom is actively driving network disaggregation based on multi-vendor Open RAN architecture to provide customer-focused innovation in the RAN. We will continue our partnership with Mavenir to accelerate Open RAN development and create a path to deployment at scale.”
