About Cloud Native RAN Certification

About Cloud RAN

As the industry is increasingly adopting 5G, flexible and scalable solutions are needed to fully deliver on the 5G promise. Cloud RAN is about meeting the requirement for edge computing as an enabler for new use cases. Furthermore, operators are looking for ways to benefit from the private wireless business opportunity. Cloud RAN can be referred to as Virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN). Its characteristics include agility, flexibility, and openness. Nokia Cloud RAN brings the needed agility for operators and industries. It complements the existing network assets, helps operators build synergies with enterprise on-premises cloud, and paves the way for 6G.

What is Cloud RAN?

Cloud RAN introduces an architectural evolution to Radio Access Networks. It means that RAN hardware and software are disaggregated: To take full advantage of the cloud-computing model, the functions are built with cloud-native design. With RAN virtualization, it is possible to use shared edge infrastructure for edge cloud deployments. This architectural evolution is about introducing 5G radio capacity for new services in the enterprise space.
