Parallel Wireless claims to offer the only ‘All G’ OpenRAN available on the market, which will allow Etisalat to eliminate the need to maintain siloed legacy networks and modernize legacy networks for cost reduction and reduce the complexity of rolling out multi-vendor 5G systems
With over 148 million subscribers, Etisalat Group aims to achieve digital transformation with the deployment of best-in-class technologies to support 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G connectivity.
Parallel Wireless enables a shift to open, software-based, and virtualized OpenRAN network architectures to overcome deployment and cost challenges, while also delivering network agility and much lower deployment and maintenance cost.
The cloud-native and software-based Parallel Wireless OpenRAN approach across ‘ALL G’ significantly improves network economics by converging ‘ALL G’, including 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, on to one unified software platform that is easy to manage. This eliminates the need to maintain siloed legacy networks dedicated to just one G service resulting in the OPEX cost reduction to maintain networks. This approach will allow Etisalat Group to modernize legacy networks for cost reduction and reduces the complexity and integration expense of rolling out multi-vendor 5G systems.
