5G network architecture has been designed to support flexible deployments using network function virtualization, software-defined networking, separation of control-plane and user-plane, and network slicing. 4G/5G Radio Access Network eNB/gNB under the O-RAN architecture definition, consists of Central Unit (CU), Distributed Unit (DU) and Radio Unit (RU). O-RAN selected the option 7.2x as the functional split between DU and RU. MTI is a member of O-RAN and the TIP alliance. With years of experience in RF communication and product development, MTI launched a 5G white box O-RU development. The MTI RU solution supports the 5G flexible network architecture and deployment configuration. MTI’s O-RU has performed IOT testing and successfully passed end to end testing with many CU/DU vendors.
4G / 5G RU
MTI O-RU supports the O-RAN specification function split option 7.2x Management plane, Control plane, User plane and Synchronization plane requirements. Support the following functions, IFFT/FFT, CP Insertion/Removal, PRB Blanking, Fragmentation, Compression/De-Compression, PRACH (Physical Random Access Channel), PUSCH (Physical Uplink Shared Channel) and PDSCH (Physical Downlink Shared Channel) channel processing.Discover
