Vodafone, Parallel Wireless and TIP (Telecom Infra Project) have partnered in leading in global OpenRAN deployments. Vodafone, a global operator, Parallel Wireless, an innovative vendor, and TIP have developed and deployed a virtualized, multi-technology OpenRAN solution that disaggregates hardware and software as an alternative to legacy RAN vendors. It makes deployments cloud-native, easy and affordable to install, maintain and to upgrade to any future technology resulting in potential OPEX reduction by up to 30%. This innovative solution is deployed in Turkey, DRC and will be rolled out across Europe.
