Mavenir selected to provide 5G SA Open RAN software to Orange. Project will create blue-print for Orange’s next generation of efficient, agile zero-touch networks.

The experimental network in Lannion, in the Britany department of France, will be 100% software-enabled and will go live in July. This first phase of a two-year project is a key pillar in Orange’s preparations to transition towards more efficient and agile cloud-native zero-touch Open RAN networks.

Mavenir is supplying its MAVair family of virtualised Open RAN software solutions which will take advantage of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning platforms to enable the RAN to flex and adapt based on usage and coverage. In the experimental network, MAVair Open RAN software and core functions will be deployed on a single Kubernetes-based infrastructure fully managed by Orange.
