Radisys has launched 5G wireless connectivity software designed for Industry 4.0 and private 5G networks. The software is designed to enhance private networks performance, ease of deployability and management, and data protection.

By integrating licensed, lightly licensed (CBRS) and unlicensed Wifi access via N3IWF, the software solution delivers low latency, cloud-native solutions for both the RAN and Core networks.

Cloudification of both RAN and Core networks offers flexible deployment options that allow for segregated and collocated distribution units (DU), central units (CU) and user plane functions (UPF) within a Kubernetes cloud environment, with the additional capability of deploying CU and UPF in the public cloud. This approach simplifies automation and deployment of 5G networks, reducing capital expenditure (CapEx) and operational expenditure (OpEx) for private and Industry 4.0 5G operators.

“Recognising the specific needs of Industry 4.0 and private 5G networks, Radisys continues to deliver innovative advanced 5G RAN and Core features to accelerate the adoption of 5G in these markets,” said Munish Chhabra, Head of Mobility Software and Services Business, Radisys. “Radisys remains committed to driving innovation in wireless technologies, empowering businesses to harness the full potential of Industry 4.0 and the future of connectivity for private and enterprise networks through its award-winning Connect RAN 5G Software solution.”

Features include:

  • Time Sensitive Network (TSN) and 5G Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (5G-URLLC) features for deterministic, low latency communication, targeted at Industry 4.0 automation requirements.
  • 5G Reduced Capability (RedCap) for connectivity of the low-cost sensors enabling smart manufacturing processes and more.
  • N3IWF (Non-3GPP Inter-working Function) to allow convergence of existing Wifi access with the 5G Core Network in enterprise and manufacturing sectors.
  • CBRS band support with ease of integration into CBRS networks via a scalable CBRS Domain Proxy to enable acceleration of CBRS deployment for private and enterprise networks.
  • Enabling intelligent Private 5G and Industry 4.0 solutions through RAN functions controlled via ORAN E2 interface and pre-integrated with xApps/rApps and RIC platforms from different vendors.
