O-RAN fronthaul IP for both the DU and RU 7-2x split options
The IP can support multiple fronthaul interfaces and each fronthaul can carry up to 8 Layers of uncompressed IQ samples, each of 100MHz bandwidth with SCS of 30 kHz over a 25G interface. In addition the IP will provide
- eCPRI IP Solution for O-RAN Transportation
- IEEE 1588 PTP support block IP for Synchronization
- Smart Interconnect for Packet classification and Quality of Service (QoS)
- Support multiple compressions/de-compressions like Block floating-point (BFP) and modulation compression
- Scalable Architecture
Mr. Joseph George,Vice President Business Unit (5G/Data-Centre) said,”We are potentially committed to growing in the 5G space and are trying to make the process seamless by addressing the diverse challenges with our focused engineering expertise”.
“Open-Radio Access Network (O-RAN) will deliver truly open fronthaul interfaces,in which multi-vendor DU-RRU interoperability can be realized along with high throughput and very low latency”.
VVDN is taking a significant approach in the 5G space with its end-to-end software and hardware expertise. The ORAN Fronthaul IP in the 7-2x split option will help in interface simplicity, transport bandwidth scalability, interoperability, lower RU complexity, and function symmetry. Not only this, offloading the PHY function to gNB-DU will help to minimize the complexity and cost of RU, thus allowing a minimal change in the gNB-RU side due to the change in 3GPP specifications. It will also help to limit the electronics needed at the antenna site – this lowers the cost as cooling components will not be needed at the antenna site. Sectors that copuld benefit include: DU-RRU vendors; ISP providers; 5G telecommunications.
