Phluido Radio-as-a-Service (RaaS)

Phluido has built the world’s first fully-virtual C-RAN system deployed over cheap, readily-available IP fronthaul.

Benefits for Service Providers

  • Service Providers can deploy 4G and 5G networks at a fraction of the cost, leveraging virtualization and resource pooling without any need for expensive, fiber-grade fronthaul links.

  • Open API and open fronthaul specifications unlock RAN unbundling, so operators can mix and match different vendors for different network layers.

  • Operators can bring the C-RAN performance benefits anywhere, even to small-cell deployments served by cheap fronthaul links.

  • A patented protocol based on splits "7-2" and "7-3", successfully demonstrated over a variety of transport networks.
