EdgeNectar Partners with ARM to Expand Converged Core Network, Supports 5G Open RAN

EdgeNectar, a provider of AI-driven, private 5G and edge compute solutions to enterprises, announced it supports 5G Open RAN using ARM's latest technology. The company also joined ARM's Ecosystem and 5G Solution Lab as a partner. EdgeNectar's converged 4G/5G core network, now supports both 3GPP standardized RAN and Open RAN. The company will demonstrate its converged core network interoperating with Open RAN at ARM's booth, MWC Hall 2, Stand I60, at Mobile World Congress 2024.

"EdgeNectar's expansion to support 5G Open RAN using ARM's latest technology offers enterprises greater flexibility, efficiency, scalability, and simplified deployment. EdgeNectar's use of ARM technology facilitates a compact hardware design, enabling more deployment options in on-site and cloud environments. Our principles of compact design, ease of deployment, and simplified management will remain central to meeting the demands of our enterprise users across many industries as networks continue to evolve," said Ken Zhang, Co-founder, and CEO of EdgeNectar.

Powered by ARM's technology, EdgeNectar's converged core network provides several significant benefits for enterprise customers, including:

  • Compact Hardware Design - Reduces physical footprint, ideal for space-constrained deployments: ARM's technology, renowned for its efficiency and low power consumption, provides crucial attributes for mobile network infrastructure. Leveraging ARM's latest advancements, EdgeNectar can develop core network components that are powerful and compact. This compactness is critical for enterprise customer deployments and locations where space is premium. It also facilitates easier scaling of network infrastructure to meet growing demand without the need for proportionally larger physical space. EdgeNectar's converged core network can support from a few hundred to several hundreds of thousands of subscribers' devices.

  • Easy Deployment - Simplifies installation in on-site or cloud environments: The compact, efficient nature of EdgeNectar's core network architecture simplifies the deployment process. Enterprise customers can deploy the core network onsite or remotely in a private or public cloud. This ease of deployment is particularly beneficial for rapidly deploying private 4G and 5G networks across diverse vertical industries, such as airports, hospitals, shopping centers, warehouses, and more.

  • Simplified Network Management - Enables efficient network control and service provisioning: Integrating ARM technology into EdgeNectar's core network architecture also facilitates simplified network management. ARM's technology supports advanced virtualization and containerization techniques, enabling more efficient use of network resources and simplifying the management of network functions. Network operators and enterprise customers can leverage software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) to dynamically manage network traffic, deploy services, and respond to network conditions in real-time. This flexibility is crucial for addressing the complex requirements of modern telecommunications networks, which need to support a wide range of services, from high-speed internet access to IoT applications and ultra-reliable, low-latency communications for critical applications.
