A flexible Radio Access Network (RAN) is the cornerstone of next-generation mobile network infrastructure. The evolved RAN architecture, designed with cloud-native virtualization techniques, enables the RAN to flex and adapt based on usage and coverage. This flexibility provides expanded and more convenient network location choices for the baseband processing. Therefore, this architecture naturally fits in existing networks’ backhaul infrastructure and is future-proof for evolution towards a fully virtualized and cloud RAN architecture.
Conventional RAN platforms have been based on proprietary hardware and rely on long life-cycles in development, deployment, and operation. With each generation of radio interface change, these radios are typically replaced with the newer versions at a significant investment and inconvenience to the CSPs. Furthermore, radio infrastructures based on this approach are designed based on the peak capacity without granular power and interference management capabilities. This creates the vendor lock-in and the inability to keep pace with technology and demographic transitions.
As a Network Software Provider, Seashore’s approach is radically different from traditional proprietary approaches. With a comprehensive portfolio of fully virtualized VNFs, cloud-native virtualization of the baseband processing is extended to the edge of the network. vRAN brings increased business agility with network elasticity, flexibility, and dynamic RAN optimization. The baseband processing centralization enables dynamic RAN adaptation through hierarchical mobility, SON, CoMP, centralized scheduling, policy enforcement, and interference control. In addition, Seashore’s vBBU is designed to support multiple Fronthaul splits simultaneously – making the vRAN solution an ideal choice for a vendor-agnostic and future-proof strategy for the CSPs.
NR 15 Release compliant. Exponential growth in network traffic, new use cases, and shared spectrum resources have placed a tremendous pressure on MNOs to find the most efficient use of their allocated radio spectrum. There is a need for a New Radio evolution to improve spectral efficiency and superior network capacity. This evolution starts with 5G NR (New Radio) which is the new standard for 5G wireless technology capable of a much faster, efficient and scalable network. 5G New Radio technology is based on flexible OFDM waveforms and multiple access techniques, optimized for the various 5G services, applications, and deployment scenarios. 5G (NR) features are defined in 3GPP standards with the first phase completion in Rel-15 and second phase in Rel-16 which will address identified use cases and deployment scenarios.
5G (NR) delivers high levels of capabilities to the network by increasing the spectrum efficiency, traffic capacity, throughput, reliability, number of connected devices and reducing end-to-end latency. This technology enables MNOs to unlock and support the diverse use cases such as Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), Enhanced Mobile broadband (eMBB), Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC), and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLC).
Element Management System
Seashore provides a state-of-the-art Element Management System (EMS) to enable MNOs to enable the sustained and efficient operation of Networks using access points and server architectures provided by Seashore. One of the primary functions of the EMS is to enable the efficient configuration of the radio access network (RAN) using APs and servers carrying VNFs provided by Seashore, such that it works seamlessly with MNO’s core network. Other key functions include the provision of alerts, real-time fault monitoring, and the real-time provision of logs and metrics for the evaluation of the performance of individual cells/sectors, and overall user performance. EMS is provided on a user-friendly dashboard with a graphical user interface. This document describes the features of the EMS dashboard provided by Seashore in detail, while outlining the importance of the information that is made available to the user. Step-by-step instruction on the use of the dashboard is also provided.
