next-gen open networks

The spark of intelligence

Open RAN

Disaggregated O-RAN drives innovation, supply chain diversity, and TCO reduction because radio access networks are disaggregated and virtualized, with open interfaces that feature multi-vendor interoperability, automation, and the benefits of virtualization. Payoff is substantial: increased flexibility and lower ownership costs. But O-RAN raises challenges for network design evolution. So how can you design efficiency into your O-RAN architecture?

A pioneer in open networks, Capgemini spearheads the design, development, and integration of virtualized and disaggregated radio networks. Our engineers accelerate O-RAN product development through customizable, standards-based, pre-built software frameworks for centralized and distributed units of the radio network. Deep expertise from silicon, protocol development, cloud platforms, orchestration, and data-driven intelligent RAN platforms helps us accelerate O-RAN market readiness for network equipment providers. We help telcos design, test, validate, deploy, and manage O-RAN while our global 5G labs provide testing, validation, and interoperability of multi-vendor solutions.

We work with 50+ network equipment providers, test/measurement companies, semiconductor companies, telcos, and leading innovators. We’re active in industry organizations and standardization bodies, including the O-RAN Alliance, Telecom Infra Project, and GSMA.

We supported groundbreaking- experiments and deployments with CSPs, and today we continue to help telcos worldwide design intelligent systems for smarter, more efficient, fully automated open networks, using an E2E approach that includes automation and orchestration. Learn about how we help our clients build the networks of tomorrow below.

O-RAN, AI & Sustainability

Intelligent RAN just got smarter:
Capgemini’s Project Marconi

With a 15% improvement in network performance, Project Marconi is already demonstrating the power of artificial cognition to enhance Intelligent RAN Controller nodes. This is only the first step in a series of innovations that design cognitive capabilities into Intelligent RAN Controller nodes. Project Marconi won the GLOTEL Award 2022 in the category “Advancing Artificial Intelligence”

A highly scalable platform based on open-source components from O-RAN SC: meet RATIO

Capgemini has developed a set of software frameworks that enable NEPs and CSPs to accelerate the development and launch of their products by 30 to 60%. The frameworks cover the entire end-to-end 5G open network ecosystem. RATIO is Capgemini’s O-RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) and is also integrated with the award-winning Capgemini NetAnticipate platform integrating AI and multiple machine-learning (ML) models.

The missing piece: designing a more efficient 5G fronthaul

In all the efforts to standardize Open RAN, one crucial element demands attention – the fronthaul network. In a joint effort, Capgemini Engineering and UfiSpace are collaborating to support Open RAN initiatives with disaggregated, modular and programmable solutions. In this white paper, we consider efficient fronthaul solutions to mitigate specific challenges in RAN evolution.

OpenRAN needs to automate and fast

Without efficient automation, telcos are currently devoting upwards of 50% of their network operations to RAN. So how can automation accelerate and take its place at the heart of Open RAN?

Industry Collaboration is Key to Transform the vision of cloud-native, AI-Optimized 5G Open RANs

Cloud-native, AI-optimized 5G open RANs (O-RANs), are fundamentally different from any previous mobile generation. They’re a step change on how radio networks are designed and built. Open networks require broad industry collaboration to become reality and live up to their potential. The good news is that many operators, vendors and other stakeholders have recognized that need and are now collaborating
