HPE claims its Open RAN Solution Stack is an industry first


Hewlett Packard Enterprise's HPE Open RAN Solution Stack is said to enable the commercial deployment of Open RAN at scale in global 5G networks.

The HPE Open RAN Solution Stack includes HPE's orchestration and automation software, RAN specific infrastructure blueprints and telco optimised infrastructure, running on the new HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus server which has been optimised for Open RAN workloads.

Developed by HPE's newly formed communications technology group (CTG), the stack shares an orchestration platform with the HPE 5G Core Stack, easing deployments from the telco core to the edge.

5G's open standards allow network operators to mix and match hardware and software from multiple vendors instead of relying on proprietary single vendor systems.

This also allows 5G networks to be built on industry standard IT hardware running virtualised networks, and HPE is contributing to the O-RAN Alliance and the Telecom Infra Project (TIP).

The HPE Open RAN Solution Stack was designed to support RAN workloads and allow customers to adopt multivendor technologies.

Innovations include intent-based orchestration and AI/ML based automation solutions, enabling the management of thousands of virtual machines, and hundreds of different virtual network functions and containerised network functions across an entire network.

Furthermore, HPE's telco infrastructure blueprints reduce risk and complexity, and increase the speed of deployment, while accommodating software from multiple vendors.

The HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus is optimised for vRAN workloads, and features an open, standards-based architecture; 3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors for performance with low power consumption; NEBS Level 3 and GR 3108 ruggedness; a reduced footprint (short-depth 1U/1P); and optional accelerators.

"By driving innovation from edge to cloud through secure, open solution stacks, HPE aims to become the transformation catalyst for the 5G economy," said HPE senior vice president and communications technology group general manager Phil Mottram.

"We have collaborated with customers and partners to build the HPE Open RAN Solution Stack from the ground up to meet the unique demands of Open RAN deployments. The HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus server is the industry's first Open RAN workload optimised server, allowing telcos to deliver efficiencies, reduce operational complexity, simplify the infrastructure, and futureproof the radio access network."

The HPE ProLiant DL110 Gen10 Plus server will be available in the second quarter of 2021.
