Parallel Wireless for OpenRAN Controller and Network Software

1d. Best Network Software Breakthrough (Companies over $10M Annual Global Revenue)

The Parallel Wireless OpenRAN controller and software suite enables OpenRAN through the complete decoupling of hardware and software functionality. This functional separation enables the software suite to support any protocol split between DUs and CUs based on available backhaul/fronthaul options for 2G 3G 4G and 5G. Different 2G 3G 4G 5G RAN functionalities consolidated on the platform, reducing complexity and making overall network maintenance simpler, less resource-intensive and more cost-effective. Parallel Wireless is the world’s first OpenRAN Controller software suite helping manage multi-vendor multi-G networks  while delivering lowest TCO to mobile operators globally.
