Denver, Colorado - May 7th 2019 - Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solution provider, today announced its collaboration with Baicells, a leading provider of disruptive global LTE/5G solutions. Integration of Baicells’ innovative vRAN solutions and QCT’s robust platforms, which extends to edge computing, virtualization, and uCPE products; bring integrated use of edge platform development and mobile network virtualization. Furthermore, the two companies are co-developing a wide-temperature-range edge platform for outdoor usage. These solutions and more will be on display at the Big 5G event in Denver Colorado starting May 7th at the Colorado Convention Center at Booth 400B
QCT leverages its own virtualization expertise and experiences in the data center cloud and next generation central office (NGCO), to provide innovative platform for virtualized and cloud RAN. QCT is providing the virtual baseband processing unit (BBU) platform to connect to the RF processing unit (remote radio unit - RRU) for 4G RAN, and for 5G RAN, QCT is offering the virtual central unit (CU) and co-developing the distributed unit (DU) platforms for the Baicells 5G new radio (NR) design.
Baicells is dedicated to Wireless access solutions. Their main products and solutions cover indoor and outdoor Base Station solutions, Gateway, Cloud based EPC, Cloud based O&M, CPE, and Antenna. Baicells’ Modular RAN (M-RAN) provides a 5G ready platform and has on-going collaborations with major mobile network operators (MNOs). Baicells is also pushing opensource RAN software and white-box hardware reference designs.
QCT and Baicells collaboration starts from the vRAN perspective, with the Baicells’ Remote Radio Head (RRH), the co-developed outdoor edge platform performed as a DU, and QCT indoor edge server performed as a CU. The indoor edge server is also ideal for Internet of Things (IoT) gateways, smart city applications, and cloud installations whether on-premise or remote.
“5G is just around the corner, and QCT is proud to collaborate with Baicells, with the shared vision of reimagining the traditional approach of building and deploying next generation network infrastructures.” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. “We look to help operators and the entire ecosystem create a more open network environment, that is more flexible, innovative, and efficient.”
“It is a great honor to collaborate with QCT by integrating our innovative M-RAN small cells and RRH with QCT’s industry-leading data center solutions.” said Lixin Sun, Founder and CEO of Baicells. “This collaborative effort will surely enable our mutual customers to minimize both capital and operating expenses as they progressively deploy 5G installations.”
QCT and Baicells have had a close partnership since 2018 and have had great synergies. At QCT’s NGCO event this January, Baicells, along with other NFV ecosystem partners, participated and gave informational sessions about their perspectives about mobile network virtualization and edge computing, which received positive feedback. This was followed by the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where QCT and Baicells both co-demoed their solutions at their respective booths.
Expect even larger displays at this year’s Big 5G event in Denver, Colorado exhibiting May 7th and 8th at the Colorado Convention Center at QCT Booth 400B.
