Seamless Open RAN 5G Service

Global adoption of Open RAN (O-RAN) architectures enables faster service delivery, increases network flexibility, and lowers infrastructure costs.

The move away from proprietary vendor infrastructure allows network operators to unlock the true promise of 5G and the IoT. As more operators deploy O-RAN networks, how will you leverage this technology to deliver in-building connectivity?

A member of the O-RAN ALLIANCE, SOLiD manufactures O-RAN-compliant solutions enabling the latest open networking advancements in private and public 5G and 4G networks. SOLiD also offers neutral host, best-in-class DAS solutions designed to seamlessly work with 5G Open RAN technology, with scalability to meet every need.

Open radio access network (O-RAN) architecture enables multi-vendor hardware and software to seamlessly and securely interconnect via standardized mobile network equipment.

Deploy Private 5G NR & 4G LTE Networks

The 5G promise of lower latency, higher data speeds, and greater reliability makes this technology ideal for many enterprise and industrial networking applications, including IoT connectivity, automation, predictive maintenance, and smart logistics. With a private 5G network deployed in-building or throughout your campus, Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT (IIoT) use cases are even more robust and reliable than public 5G with the benefit of efficient, manageable, and secure edge connectivity.

To improve private 5G network service agility, scalability, and efficiency, SOLiD O-RAN technology enables simple and economical use of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum. The SOLiD CBRS O-RAN Radio Unit (O-RU) complies with O-RAN ALLIANCE fronthaul specifications, supporting 4G LTE and 5G New Radio (NR) in standalone (SA) or non-standalone (NSA) architecture.

The SOLiD Fronthaul Multiplexer (MUX) technology distributes and aggregates signals between the SOLiD CBRS O-RU and virtual or physical baseband products. The SOLiD Fronthaul MUX solution reduces backhaul bandwidth requirements by amassing all of the uplink traffic, thereby eliminating the need for dedicated bandwidth for each remote unit.

SOLiD Open RAN architectures offer proven interoperability with multi-vendor virtual or physical CU/DU baseband products, including solutions from ASOCS, Mavenir, and Parallel Wireless.

Unleash Industry 4.0 Transformation

SOLiD has teamed up with ASOCS to deliver a complete O-RAN and CBRS-compliant solution that enables rapid deployment of scalable private 5G and IIoT networks with real-time positioning. The joint solution empowers mission-critical Industry 4.0 use cases, such as manufacturing automation, predictive maintenance, real-time asset tracking, process optimization, traffic flow analytics, and occupational health and safety.

The joint private 5G network solution comprises the SOLiD CBRS O-RU, the ASOCS CYRUS® virtual O-RAN Distributed Unit (O-DU) and Centralized Unit (O-CU), and ASOCS Hermes NGP real-time positioning software. This O-RAN-compliant solution, certified by the OnGo Alliance, delivers intelligent real-time positioning, a bedrock of private 5G networks for Industry 4.0 transformation.

Stay One Step Ahead

Mobile networks constantly evolve, and SOLiD’s neutral host technology keeps pace. Our next-generation Open RAN technologies provide a logical stepping stone to future architectures, such as those that work with RAN sharing models like multi-operator RAN (MORAN) or multi-operator core network (MOCN) architecture. With these sharing models, multiple mobile network operators can share RAN equipment and/or CBRS spectrum allocations to achieve maximum cost efficiency.

Trust SOLiD to deliver the latest technologies for always-on, everywhere, in-building connectivity for both public and private networks, enabling more efficient, scalable, and reliable connectivity for lower total system costs.
