ADLINK Technology has recently joined the O-RAN ALLIANCE as a Community Member to actively contribute to the ALLIANCE mission to bring intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile networks to the Radio Access Network (RAN) industry.
ADLINK brings proficiency in developing Open Telcom IT Infrastructure (OTII)-compliant, standards-based 5G MEC edge servers for deployments in 5G Open RAN, 5G small cell solutions, and private 5G networks that it can share with a global community of mobile network operators, academic and research institutions.
“5G Open RAN will play a critical role in driving 5G adoption and enterprise digital transformation across industries. ADLINK is committed to accelerating the innovation and implementation of the open architecture,” said Erik Kao, General Manager, Networking, Communication & Public Sector, ADLINK. “We have been working with our solution partners and customers on a list of trial projects in manufacturing, mining and connected car infrastructure, and we will continue to work with O-RAN ALLIANCE members to develop O-RAN standards-compliant, cost-effective and scalable 5G Open RAN solutions.”
ADLINK works with O-RAN ALLIANCE members such as Sageran and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to meet the full potential for 5G deployment. ADLINK and Sageran allied to create a 5G small cell design that could deploy anywhere. Approved as an Intel® IoT RFP Ready Kit (RRK), the 5G small cell solution features lower capital expenditure (CapEx) and operating expenditure (OpEx), easy plug-and-play deployment, support for open RAN architectures, and Wi-Fi integration that remains distinct.
ADLINK’s MECS series edge servers with AWS IoT Greengrass brings AI to the edge through IoT smart vision solutions such as ADLINK’s latest generation NEON SeriesSmart Camera, which includes an NVIDIA Jetson Xavier™ NX SOM for increased computing power, advanced image processing, and machine vision solutions.
The edge servers and cloud services work together to connect and integrate cameras, conveyors, automation systems, factory management systems, and cloud to make production lines intelligent.
