CommScope enhances 5G offering with new small cells, antennas and connectors

CommScope has announced new enhancements to its OneCell small cell solution designed to help mobile operators deploy 5G in enterprises and venues.

It also unveiled several antenna solutions, connectors and power options to make it simpler and faster for wireless operators to build their 5G networks.

Small Cells

The new small cell solutions include open interfaces, virtualised RAN functions, and new radio points for its OneCell small cell portfolio. The OneCell solution leverages the latest open RAN and management frameworks to deliver in-building wireless services. “CommScope fully supports open interfaces to stimulate innovation,” said Upendra Pingle, vice president of Distributed Coverage and Capacity Solutions for CommScope’s Venues and Campus Networks segment.

Among the new features is support for 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz bands. The addition of these bands to the OneCell RP5000 Series of radio points enables operators to address 5G in-building needs. This includes 28 GHz and 39 GHz mmWave bands, CBRS and C-band in the US, and 3.5 GHz bands in Europe and the rest of the world.

Another new feature deals with virtualised 5G NR baseband functions. This allows baseband functions to run on x86-based server platforms anywhere in the network to support 5G network slicing – virtual end-to-end networks customised for each application requirement. For example, capacity-related functions can be centralised for efficient pooling, while data and media delivery can be pushed to the edge for low latency.
