Juniper Networks collaborates with Intel to deliver Open RAN Innovation

By

Global networking products manufacturer Juniper Networks is working with Intel to ramp innovation in the Open Ran (ORAN) ecosystem.

Juniper’s collaboration with Intel includes the following:

  • Juniper Ran Intelligent Controller (RIC) and Intel FlexRAN platform are pre-integrated and pre-validated to enhance usability of a full Oran-compliant Intelligent RAN system
  • Collaborative R&D work with Intel Labs for RIC platform-specific apps to improve customer experience, maximise ROI and drive rapid ORAN ecosystem innovation
  • Joint customer testbeds with Intel to validate performance-improving implementation and speed of time-to-market

Juniper Networks says it is an active member of the O-RAN Alliance, contributing to six working groups and serving as chair and co-chair of the slicing and use-case task groups, respectively. Juniper is also an editor of RIC specifications within the alliance.

Juniper Networks also adds it is committed to bringing an experience-first network to customers through automation, intelligent control, and assurance of experience.

To create major investments, it has inked an exclusive IP licensing agreement with Netsia, and continues significant involvement in the O-RAN Alliance. Juniper Networks is also part of the innovation team building joint customer solutions in Intel’s 5G Lab.

Spending on Radio Access Networks (RAN) contributes to service providers’ capital expenditures (CapEx), primarily due to limited vendor choice and closed architectures which lead to lock-in.

Juniper recognises that the RAN is a domain that demands openness and best-of-breed innovation to ensure the best experience for network operators and their customers, and is determined to lead the industry toward that vision.

“By collaborating with Intel, we are able to deliver cloud-native routing, automation, intelligence and assurance solutions and services that are optimised for our customers’ needs, speeding time-to-market and enabling them to monetise faster,” says Juniper Networks VP of 5G and telco cloud Constantine Polychronopoulos.

“The virtualisation of the RAN continues to gain momentum across the industry as operators take advantage of cloud economics and the delivery of new services. This collaboration with Juniper and the validation of FlexRAN and RIC solutions will assist service providers to overcome integration challenges and accelerate time-to-market for future deployments,” concludes Intel vice president general manager of network business incubator division Caroline Chan.
