5G Open RAN IPs for radio and distribution units
VVDN Technologies has announced the further development in its ORAN IPs to help OEMs, telecommunications operators and system integrators, design and deploy enterprise grade as well as macro–ORAN radio units (RUs) and distribution units (DUs) on option 7.2 split.
The VVDN 5G ORAN IP portfolio includes:
- Fronthaul and baseband layer 1 Low PHY IP fully compatible with ORAN on option 7.2;
- Full inline baseband layer 1 High PHY running on FPGA for option 7.2 split DU;
- LDPC and PTP offload for DU.
The VVDN IP stacks are ORAN compliant, Interop tested, run on FPGAs and are portable to run on custom ASICs as well. Further they can support different flavours such as single/dual/tri-band RUs for 2T2R/4T4R/8T8R (with optional beamforming), multiple carriers and bandwidths. These IPs can be leveraged by RU/DU ODMs/OEMs, 5G custom ASIC companies, test and measurement companies and other 5G equipment manufacturing companies for their quick development and rollout of 5G solutions.
VVDN is also planning to bring hardware IPs in the DU space, which would be announced very soon. VVDN’s focus and investment to develop these IP radios would ensure India leads in the 5G space and serve global customers in implementing their product.
Saurav Gupta, VP and GM, North America, 5G Business Unit said, “VVDN’s investment in 5G IPs underscores the company’s commitment to bring 5G ORAN innovation and act as a major catalyst to help us widen our 5G capability portfolio as well as help accelerate the time to market for our customers. Our IP products have proven expertise as these are being used in the design and development of ORAN based RUs and DUs for multiple customers.” He further added , “VVDN has a strong roadmap for 5G. Today we are experts in sub6 GHz technologies and our future endeavour is for mmwave based solutions.”
VVDN has also created a complete ecosystem for the manufacturing of 5G products in India and plans to ship RUs and DUs to global customers. The company has setup SMT lines, RF reliability labs, an ORAN lab, 5G RU/DU mechanical tooling, and the ability for 5G RU/DU die casting and sheet metal work.
