Inland Cellular, a leading wireless communications company in the Inland Northwest United States has selected Parallel Wireless' Open vRAN solution to deliver cost-effective 4G LTE coverage expansion and 5G upgradability.

A key goal of Inland Cellular's network expansion is to continue delivering exceptional LTE service to their end-users, businesses, and national roamers using Parallel Wireless's cloud-native end-to-end architecture to quickly densify, upgrade, and future-proof their network for 5G. This fully virtualized solution utilizes Parallel Wireless's software-defined RRH operating in Band 71 (600 MHz) which is orchestrated by network software to make the network cloud-based, easy and cost-effective to deploy, and 5G ready. Using open interfaces, this solution has the flexibility to support various deployment scenarios, including urban densification, to help Inland Cellular easily and affordably deliver the best service and performance.

Because the solution is 100% software-based, running on COTS hardware, Inland Cellular can rapidly deploy new features and services like IoT and smart homes, said Parelle Wireless. Migration from 4G to 5G is achieved through a simple software update, giving Inland Cellular the ability to stay profitable and offer unique services.
