Mavenir has announced the unveiling of its latest 5G small cell at the upcoming India Mobile Congress (IMC) event.

Mavenir’s 5G small cell (E511), is a globally applicable product, with the flexibility to support both distributed and centralised open radio access network (ORAN) architectures. Building on an established install base of over 2 million small cell units deployed globally, the 5G small cell forms part of an expanding small cell portfolio, that leverages Mavenir’s end-to-end RAN solution including a common management system and centralised unit (CU). This flexibility, coupled with zero-touch provisioning – ease of deployment, cost-effective, high-capacity solution is ideal for a variety of deployment use cases, including enterprises such as office, retail, warehousing, manufacturing, and public spaces.

Commenting on the development, Puneet Sethi, SVP and GM, RAN Business, Mavenir, said, “By adding the 5G small cell to Mavenir’s product portfolio, we have completed our Multi-G (2G/3G/4G/5G), software upgradable, ORAN-based small cells offering, enabling communication service providers (CSPs) to enhance their network capacity and coverage for in-building use cases. The E511 is currently undergoing lab trials across India, Europe and the US.”

A live product demonstration will be showcasing the 5G small cell in a neutral private network configuration over Mavenir’s 5G standalone (SA) core at the IMC.
