TIM runs successful Virtual Radio Access Network trial

Tuesday 23 February 2016 | 10:05 CET | News
TIM (Telecom Italia) has teamed up with US-based mobile broadband network provider Altiostar to conduct a successful trial of Virtual Radio Access Network (vRAN) technology at TIM's TILab in Turin. The trial was the first wireless access implementation providing centralisation and virtualisation of radio signals, even with Ethernet fronthauling, said TIM, adding that the system will fully exploit the benefits of LTE Advanced technology, and ultimately 5G, to maximise speed and eliminate interference between cells serviced by different base radio stations.
