|Top Use Cases||
|In Production Deployment||No|
Saguna Open-RAN is compliant with ETSI MEC ISG specifications, the Open-RAN platform includes additional components that are required for deployment in production networks, such as integrated IPSec, Router, Integrated load balancer Integration Lawful interception and Charging systems.
Saguna solution is a software only architecture that runs on every commodity off the shelf server, this frees the Service Provider to choose any HW vendor. The Open-RAN forwarding plane is based on User-Space networking software offering extreme low latency below 100microseconds and very high throughput 10’s of Gbps (depending on the HW).
The Saguna Open-RAN platform supports both MEC on S1 on MEC on SGI architecture ensuring 5G continuity.
|Performance and Scalability||
The Open-RAN has a cloudlet Management SW, each unit is managed locally and as collective are managed via a centralized orchestration, enabling scaling to 100,000’s of locations in the same network.
