From SingleRAN to CloudRAN
  • Over the past decade, the rapid development of communication technologies is a driving force behind the profound integration of multiple radio access technologies (RATs), which further stimulates the emergence of SingleRAN. Global SingleRAN deployment promotes the extensive application of 3G and 4G. As a result, SingleRAN has gained a reputation of a genuine standard in mobile communication network construction. What continuous innovation does SingleRAN have to adapt to an uncertain future? How will SingleRAN help 4.5G networks satisfy demands for capacity, coverage, connection, and latency before the advent of 5G?
  • Diversified future requirements are stimulating the large-scale transformation of network architecture. How will this transformation meet rapid service delivery requirements of a diverse range of industries based solely on wireless networks? How will cloudification and virtualization help operators maximize network resource efficiency? How will SingleRAN coexist with future technologies to protect and leverage existing network investment?
  • The exhibit showcasing the transformation From SingleRAN to CloudRAN presents answers to these high-priority queries.
  • CloudRAN
