The O-RAN Alliance-defined open interface is the key feature for advanced and efficient mobile RAN in 5G environments, as well as in 4G, which benefits both mobile operators and vendors.

SOLiD’s innovation paths in product and technology are aligned with the O-RAN Alliance-defined open interface, specifically in such products as SOLiD’s IA-8000, Mobile Front-haul Solution, and GENESIS Distributed Antenna System.

According to SOLiD CEO, Dr. Seung Hee Lee, “SOLiD is at the forefront of providing Open RAN solutions to global operators in South Korea, Japan, the US and across the globe. Our early experience, and other ongoing Open RAN initiatives can accelerate deployment of innovative radio technology in mobile networks across the globe. We are delivering O-RAN solutions in 2019 and will do so for years to come.”
