Altran announced that its pre-integrated 5G RAN framework will now be used by Shenzhen Fu Hua Ke (FHK), a subsidiary of Foxconn Industry Internet (FII), which develops the 5G wireless and edge computing technologies.
Altran, the global leader in engineering and R&D services, developed its 5G RAN framework to be fully compliant with 3GPP specifications. The solution has both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes, providing scalability for large and small deployments. Foxconn founded FHK and is investing heavily in 5G use cases to support millimeter wave (mmW) and sub-6 GHz frequencies. This new partnership enables FHK to develop turnkey 5G access integration that reduces deployment time.
Altran’s software framework solution contains 3GPP-specified Layer 2 and 3 capabilities, as well as scheduler and radio resource management (RRM) applications that are pre-integrated with PHY from multiple vendors for interoperability. The hardware-agnostic 5G framework can be ported on any platform, providing a significant advantage for NEPs that are developing 5G trials with service providers across the globe.
