VVDN Technologies has announced further development in its ORAN IPs to help OEMs, telcos, and system integrators design and deploy enterprise-grade radio units and distribution units.
VVDN Technologies has announced further development in its ORAN IPs to help OEMs, telcos, and system integrators design and deploy enterprise-grade as well as macro-ORAN radio units (RU) and distribution units (DU) on option 7.2 split.
VVDN’s 5G ORAN IP portfolio includes fronthaul and baseband layer 1 Low PHY IP fully compatible with ORAN on option 7.2; full inline baseband layer 1 High PHY running on FPGA for option 7.2 split DU; and LDPC and PTP offload for DU.
VVDN’s IP stacks are ORAN compliant, Interop tested, run on FPGA, and are portable to run on custom ASIC as well. Further, they can support different flavors such as single-/dual-/tri-band RU’s for 2T2R/4T4R/8T8R (with optional beamforming), multiple carriers, and bandwidths. These IPs can be leveraged by RU/DU ODMs/OEMs, 5G custom ASIC companies, test and measurement (T&M) companies, and other 5G equipment manufacturing companies for their quick development and rollout of 5G solutions.
VVDN is also planning to bring hardware IPs into the DU space, which would be announced very soon. VVDN’s focus and investment to develop these IPR’s would ensure India leads in the 5G space and serve global customers in implementing their product.
“We are very excited to announce our 5G ORAN IP portfolio. VVDN’s investment in the 5G IPs underscores the company’s commitment to bring 5G ORAN innovation and act as a major catalyst to help us widen our 5G solution capability portfolio as well as help accelerate the time to market for our customers. Our IP solutions have proven expertise as these are being used in the design and development of O-RAN based RU’s and DU’s for multiple customers,” said Saurav Gupta, VP, and GM, N. America, 5G Business Unit. “VVDN has a strong roadmap for 5G. Today we are experts in sub6 GHz technologies and our future endeavor is for mm-wave-based solutions.”
VVDN has also created a complete ecosystem for the manufacturing of 5G products in India and plans to ship RUs and DUs to global customers. The company has set up SMT lines, RF reliability labs, ORAN lab, 5G RU/DU mechanical tooling, and 5G RU/DU die casting and sheet metal. Recently, VVDN was awarded production linked incentive (PLI) for telecom and networking products by the Government of India. VVDN would further do a separate announcement of complete capabilities on 5G manufacturing.
