Mavenir launches Open RAN Centre of Excellence in Germany

Mavenir, a cloud-native software provider, has launched a new Centre of Excellence in Bonn, Germany to develop Open RAN technologies

Cloud-native network software provider Mavenir has expanded its European capabilities with the establishment of an Open RAN Centre of Excellence in Germany.

Centred in Bonn, with satellite teams in Düsseldorf and Munich, the Centre of Excellence aims to support European Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) with Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) engineering, planning, design, system integration and deployment.

This announcement builds on Mavenir’s leadership in Open RAN. Earlier this year, Mavenir launched its OpenBeam portfolio of O-RAN compliant radio products, which provide MNOs with Open RAN solutions spanning micro, macro, millimetre wave (mmWave), and massive MIMO (mMIMO) use cases.

Discussing the launch in more detail, Vishant Vora, President, Global Operations and Managed Services at Mavenir, said, “Mavenir’s Centre of Excellence in Germany is developing advanced Open RAN end-to-end skills, and supporting our German customers with localised support to accelerate Open RAN deployments.”

Developing Open RAN technologies in Germany 

Germany is a strong advocate for the development and adoption of Open RAN technologies. Open RAN is playing a key role in the country’s Mobile Network Transformation strategy: all German MNOs have committed to adopting Open RAN.  The technology is also backed by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, which announced €300mn (US$344mn) in funding to develop and test Open RAN technology in the country.=

Puneet Sethi, Senior Vice President and General Manager of RAN Business at Mavenir, said, “This latest Centre of Excellence further extends access to Mavenir’s Open RAN expertise across Europe and complements existing R&D design centres of excellence in Sweden, the Czech Republic, and the United Kingdom.”
