Mavenir Opens Radio R&D Unit in Ericsson's Backyard

4 October 2019

Mavenir has added to its virtualization portfolio by opening a new research facility in Stockholm that will specialize in radio access networks (RAN).

This Center of Innovation will have about 50 employees when it's fully staffed and feature a lab where technical experts can perform their magic, linking to an internal core network stack and messaging platform. Wasting no time, Mavenir has already demonstrated 5G new radio technology in conjunction with new interfaces developed by the O-RAN Alliance, an operator-led association working on open alternatives to the more proprietary interfaces used in today's networks.
