Ceragon Networks Ltd., a leader in wireless hauling solutions, announced TIM Brazil has selected it to participate in work they are carrying out with Telecom Infra-Project (TIP) and the National Telecommunication Institute (INATEL) to test providers for 5G OpenRAN.
The open field trial will take place on the INATEL campus, in Santa Rita do Sapucaí (MG), and will incorporate software and hardware vendors, operators, university members and members of the TIP working groups. The trials will be led by TIP, which has been promoting open and disaggregated solutions for telecom networks. The trials will test and validate different combinations of OpenRAN components from various suppliers and their performance under conditions like that of a commercial network.
This news signifies great recognition of Ceragon’s Open Network hauling solutions and technology, as well as marks a substantial step forward towards Ceragon’s involvement in Brazil’s future network deployments. For the purpose of this trial, TIM Brazil will deploy Ceragon’s new generation, all-outdoor, ultra-high capacity IP-50E millimeter wave solution – capable of delivering up to 20 Gbps capacity today.
