Introduction

We at HCL, believe that 5G is going to be a lot more than just the next wave in mobile technology. It reflects a profound change in the way corporations and organizations will function in the years to come.

In addition to the obvious latency benefits and tremendous gains in speed and bandwidth, 5G would offer fluidity and last-mile connectivity, becoming the universal and all-pervasive glue across industries to unify and overcome some of the world's greatest connectivity challenges.

HCL is participating at GSMA Thrive North America 2020 as an Exhibitor, to help you take your business to the next level. As a leading Engineering and R&D company with years of experience in transforming businesses, we invite you for a meeting to discuss our latest 5G and connectivity solutions and services.

ORAN ADOPTION AND ENGINEERING IMPERATIVES IN 5G

We at HCL, believe that 5G is going to be a lot more than just the next wave in mobile technology. It reflects a profound change in the way corporations and organizations will function in the years to come.

As the promises for 5G - GBs of download speed, microseconds in latency, millions of connected devices per square mile, ‘six-nines’ in availability, energy efficiency, extension of services to new enterprises especially Industrial and IOT markets are becoming closer to reality with each passing day, enterprises around the world have moved on to research and development of 5G applications for their day-to-day activities which will benefit business.

O-RAN or Open-Radio Access Network is a novel approach to disaggregate the RAN both horizontally and vertically. This slicing-and-dicing has enabled newer players such as silicon vendors and cloud computing platform providers to innovate along with the incumbents. To move the technology vector towards self-driving cars, remote surgery or smart-farming, O-RAN promises to accelerate innovation cycles for the incumbents, encourage greenfield investment by new players and provide an opportunity space for engineering services such as interoperability, conformance, verification and orchestration.
