MWC Americas Highlights: Moving Open Telecom Solutions Ahead

The second MWC Americas show held in Los Angeles this year is in the books. This year’s theme focused on imagining a better future and the possibilities it will bring. For us at Radisys, we’re not just imagining a better future – we’re creating it now. The future is open and disaggregated, and it will rely on a multi-vendor ecosystem. It will enable service providers around the world to disrupt their networks to break vendor lock-in and drive innovation.

Gaining a Competitive Edge

At MWC Americas, we demonstrated our portfolio of open solutions targeted at the access network and the edge. In the ONF Partner Booth, the Radisys team showcased how a surveillance application can benefit from powerful Multi-Access Edge Computing with media analytics and AI inference for facial recognition. Our solution enables service providers to optimize and monetize media at the edge, while achieving backhaul savings for always-on video surveillance. It also delivers ultra-low latency that 5G networks require.

Accelerating OnGo™ Market Readiness

We also had the opportunity to talk with attendees about our Radisys CBRS Software and Services during the CBRS Alliance Partner Showcase, including a demonstration of our OnGo Test Automation Demo and system integration services for CBRS in neutral host, fixed-wireless access, and private LTE networks. Our test suite will support the OnGo certification program, supporting the delivery of a robust ecosystem of OnGo devices and services in the U.S. CBRS band.

Looking Ahead

While showcasing our portfolio of open telecom solutions is always valuable, it’s meeting with our customers in person at these industry events to talk about building these future networks for 5G and IoT that I look forward to.
