From December 6th to December 10th, at the 3rd Global Live PlugFest Closed-door Demonstration Conference, MICAS demonstrated and explained its “5G O-RU Solution“. The conference presented the functions of network equipment and manufacturer’s interoperability. MICAS O-RU attracted the global attention and successfully exhibited the feasibility of wireless open networks.
The “5G O-RU Solution” provided by MICAS is an equipment that provides high-quality 5G signal strength. It has completed more than 20 tests in different scenarios in collaboration with Keysight in the laboratories in Berlin and Taiwan, which means that MICAS has handed in a satisfactory answer sheet at the O-RAN global PlugFest test conference. Moreover, as an outstanding contribution member of O-RAN, MICAS was invited to give a speech at the 3rd Global PlugFest Test Conference, sharing MICAS’s recent research progress with global mobile operators, suppliers and research academic institutions.
He Ying, CEO of MICAS mentioned to the press: “Our O-RU have been shipped to the global key customers for trial testing. Thanks to that Keysight provided full support to MICAS from pre-silicon development to system integration. MICAS and Keysight combined their technical resources, which ensured that MICAS Sub-6GHz and mmWave O-RU solutions completed the test scenarios quickly and successfully, complying with the O-RAN conformance test requirements.” “During the test, MICAS’s latest Crest Factor Reduction (CFR) and Digital Predistortion (DPD) algorithms also showed excellent RF performance. Therefore benefited by these algorithms, Skyworks PA’s energy efficiency is highly improved.”
This conference accelerated the pace of O-RAN compatible commercial solutions. Soon mature solutions are expected to become part of mainstream suppliers and supplier product lines. Since RAN is an important and basic part of any mobile network, the mission of the O-RAN Alliance is to reshape the entire industry and move it towards a more intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile network. MICAS’s 5G O-RU turnkey solution covers the 5G high-frequency bands, providing full support for the design, deployment, optimization and maintenance of the O-RAN ecosystem.
