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.

N. Mohan Rangan, Group SVP and Chief Engineering Officer, Altran
5G supports a wide array of use cases, ranging from low-latency IoT deployments to high-speed mobile broadband on varying spectrum bands and deployments.

Wei Luo, CEO of FHK and VP of Foxconn
Given the variety of use cases and applications that 5G supports, we are eager to partner with industry leaders like Altran, which have the expertise to develop reliable, robust and interoperable 5G solutions.
