The Telecom Infra Project announces "the formation of the vRAN Fronthaul Group. This group will focus on virtualization of the RAN for non-ideal backhaul, in particular maximizing the performance through optimization of physical layer, compression, and other methods. The project will help the ecosystem to provide low-cost RRUs for a diversity of deployment scenarios, which can be managed and dynamically reconfigured by a centralized infrastructure over non-ideal transport (i.e. not CPRI). Key scenarios for this include high density locations in indoor environments, rural or suburban/urban broadband connectivity, and multi-operator/neutral host deployments. ".
Phluido is proud to be a project champion and main vendor for the first phases of the project and deliverables.
Phluido announces that it has successfully completed interoperability testing between its radio access network virtualized baseband and Quortus’ EdgeCentrix (ECX) 4G virtual core network product.
Phluido and Quortus plan to continue the collaboration by further exploring the benefits of their respective technologies and their smooth interoperability, paving the way to 5G and a revolutionary yet inexpensive way to deploy and manage mobile networks.

Phluido, in collaboration with a global mobile network operator, demonstrated a fully virtualized, centralized LTE-A radio access network based on Phluido proprietary RaaS-FIP technology. The system featured Phluido virtualized baseband, along with 3 radio units providing mobile capacity to commercial mobile phones. The feasibility of coordinated multipoint (CoMP), for both downlink (joint transmission) and uplink (joint reception), was demonstrated even in harsh fronthaul scenarios, such as with limited and varying capacity, and with fronthaul latency as high as several ms.
Phluido RaaS Fronthaul over IP (RaaS-FIP) revolutionary fronthaul protocol, along with Phluido virtualized LTE-A baseband, has been licensed to a major small cell vendor and a global DAS provider, for evaluation and trial.
Phluido, Inc. and Vodafone Group have successfully completed lab trials of Phluido’s Radio-as-a-Service technology at the Vodafone Group Networks Competence Centre in Madrid, Spain.

Phluido is glad to announce its participation in the Intel Network Builders initiative.
Intel® Network Builders is an ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs), operating system vendors (OSVs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs), system integrators, and communications service providers coming together to accelerate the adoption of network functions virtualization (NFV)- and software defined networking (SDN)-based solutions in telecommunications networks and public, private enterprise, and hybrid clouds.
This screenshot shows a fully virtualized RaaS 20MHz LTE-FDD cell, consistently sustaining peak rate in both DL and UL, using a very small fraction of the server's computational horsepower. Also, the suboptimal fronthaul with a RTT latency larger than 20ms did not affect the performance at all, and the fronthaul throughput is order of magnitude smaller than CPRI.
We are proud to announce that Phluido has been designated by the San Diego Venture Group as a "Cool Company" for 2016
Phluido RaaS demo was successfully showcased at the Telecom Council of Silicon Valley event "Infrastructure Forum: Radical RAN"
Attendees have been able to connect to our fully virtualized LTE network, with baseband in public cloud and fronthaul over IP, using commercial off-the-shelf smartphones.
Phluido will showcase a 4G LTE network based on Radio-as-a-Service (RaaS) technology. The visitors will be able to connect a commercial smartphone to the live indoor LTE network, and experience the superior performance that centralized Radio Access Network (RAN) can provide. While keeping the flow interactive, the speakers will point out the unique aspects that make this RaaS deployment the World’s first “cloud RAN over IP” public demonstration. Download the paper here.
