Platforms for vRAN & Mini-cRAN based on MaxCore™ HA

Artesyn’s MaxCore™ HA was conceived specifically for vRAN and mini-cRAN applications

Centralizing and virtualizing the baseband processing of 4G networks today and 5G networks of the future can have profound payoff both in CapEx and OpEx.  For example a Mini-cRANs allow mobile operators to provision baseband processing in real-time where it’s needed such as at an arena during a sporting event and at an office complex during business hours. This allows for far less over-provisioning, cutting down both CapEx and OpEx.
