VIAVI Solutions has announced that Capgemini, a global leader in business and technology transformation, has collaborated with the company through Capgemini Engineering in Portugal to deliver an industry-leading 5G and O-RAN lab test capability, powered by VIAVI’s O-RAN Lab-as-a-Service (LaaS).
The success of 5G open networks depends on both end-to-end performance and core testing. Open networks need to provide the same performance or better than traditional networks for operators to reap the benefits of reduced infrastructure costs with the added pressure to deliver new functionality faster than ever. Compounding these challenges is the rise of many new entrants in the supply chain, as open networks depend on a diversity of radio types and manufacturers.
Ian Langley, Vice President and General Manager, Wireless Business Unit, VIAVI, said: “Our leading position in testing new open RAN architectures has been achieved thanks to our history and expertise working with manufacturers and operators and in defining benchmarks for how high-performance networks must operate.”
The VIAVI portfolio of test tools enables comprehensive measurements for the entire network life cycle, providing functional, system integration and performance testing of gNBs, core networks, core network components and O-RAN subsystems, delivering true end-user QoE visibility.Click below to share this article
