Fujitsu Announces to Deliver O-RAN Compatible 5G Radio Units for KDDI

Fujitsu | December 03, 2020

Japanese organization Fujitsu reported that its O-RAN-viable 5G radio unit was chosen by countryman transporter KDDI for the development of virtualized base stations for 5G business administrations in Japan.

The base stations will be conveyed in the second 50% of financial year 2021, Fujitsu said.

The recently evolved 5G Radio Unit utilizes O-RAN standard details for the fronthaul interface for correspondence with base station regulators. This makes it conceivable to build up an adaptable organization with an O-RAN setup by associating base station regulators between various merchants that follow this determination, Fujitsu said.

Planning to quicken the conveyance of 5G administrations, Fujitsu says it will make scaling down and low force utilization a reality for radio units that use exceptionally effective, wide-band power enhancement innovation. Mounting more recieving wire components than traditional MIMO advancements will improve the impacts of beamforming and spatial multiplexing, the organization added, and will eventually assist with conveying consistent, expedient portable interchanges for clients in spots where numerous individuals assemble.

Later on, Fujitsu said it will proceed with its commitments to the worldwide advancement of O-RAN and backing the improvement of KDDI's 5G business administrations.

Cambium Networks Announces cnHeat™ with Integrated Broadband Data Collection (BDC) for Fixed Wireless Connectivity

Cambium Networks | July 14, 2022

Cambium Networks a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, today announced that the cnHeat network planning software now makes it easy for all fixed wireless broadband service providers to meet their FCC-mandated Broadband Data Collection (BDC) reporting requirements. cnHeat and the integrated BDC reporting is manufacturer agnostic and can be exercised with Cambium Networks fixed wireless broadband infrastructure, as well other available fixed wireless infrastructure providers' solutions. The platform is particularly beneficial for service providers seeking to deliver reliable fixed wireless connectivity using the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) frequency band in the context of the NTIA Broadband Equity, Access and Deployment (BEAD) program. "Broadband service providers are deploying fixed wireless connectivity to rapidly provide cost-effective connectivity," said Scott Imhoff, Senior Vice President of Product Management and Planning. "The precise information provided by cnHeat enables a great opportunity for broadband service providers in the United States to extend their network coverage using PMP 450 technology in the CBRS spectrum while making it easy to meet BEAD program reporting requirements. In addition to CBRS-based networks, cnHeat can be applied to networks utilizing 2 GHz, 5 GHz, 60 GHz, and 28 GHz including Cambium Networks ePMP and cnWave platforms." "We have been serving thousands of business and residential subscribers with fixed wireless technology for over 20 years, Cambium Networks' cnHeat improves the efficiency of providing connectivity to our customers and future growth. End customers will have better connectivity faster and this is good for everyone." Caleb Wiemann, Broadband Support Specialist at Evertek Wireless in Iowa The BEAD program defines "Reliable Broadband Service" as broadband service that the Broadband Data Maps show is accessible to a location. Service providers can use cnHeat planning software with integrated automatic Broadband Data Collection (BDC) to submit high quality data to the FCC and to save time and resources meeting the bi-annual FCC reporting requirements.
