IS-Wireless, a provider of Radio Access Network (RAN) and Tambora Systems, a provider of Mobile Edge Core, announced cooperation to address challenges in building mobile networks of the future. The goal is to transform mobile network architecture by closely coupling the RAN & Core to achieve higher cost savings, better performance, and faster time to market for new services. The companies are in advanced discussions with customers from the US and Southeast Asia
Poland-based IS-Wireless and Singapore-based Tambora Systems introduced an innovative solution where RAN and Core, are horizontally integrated which results in an optimal adjustment to the user profile. Thanks to this optimization the network traffic is performed locally which has a tremendous impact on the quality of service for the end-users. – There is a change in the paradigm of building mobile networks – they will be much more content-driven – says the CEO & Founder of IS-Wireless, Dr. Slawomir Pietrzyk. – The center of gravity moves from the operator to the content provider, who will participate more in this business. Such networks must be effective and built based on the edge computing concept – he adds.
It’s an innovative model of thinking about resources. Network functionalities are launched where it is needed at a given moment. This allows better management of resources and reduces operating costs. One can compare it to the “just in time” model in manufacturing or logistics. Such flexible, user-centric networks are what we call Open RAN wave 2. – This is the industry’s first fractal solution, a micro-mobile network of RAN & Core at Edge -says CEO & Co-Founder of Tambora, Anand Uppili. – This will cut Core & RAN costs by 40-60%, reduce delay by 50% and provide flexible platform to launch new services – adds Anand Uppili.
The companies are in advanced discussions with customers from markets such as US, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia. Thanks to cooperation with Tambora, IS-Wireless can offer effective mobile networks in super-dense areas like Bangkok or Jakarta – places where many users use big chunks of data simultaneously. The solutions allow high quality of service to each of them. After trials, joint announcements are planned later this year and in 2022.
IS-Wireless implements a 5G campus network
The cooperation with Tambora Systems is a strong entry of IS-Wireless to international markets. In July, the company began its first 5G network implementation in Poland based on an open model, the so-called Open RAN. This is the latest trend in building 5G networks, gaining attention all around the world.
