Wind River announces development of a 5G vRAN solution that integrates Intel FlexRAN reference software to help operators alleviate key integration and complexity challenges.

Today, Wind River announced development of a 5G virtual radio access network (vRAN) solution that integrates Intel® FlexRAN reference software for systems powered by 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors in concert with Wind River Studio. This solution will help alleviate key integration and complexity challenges cited by operators implementing vRAN by combining proven optimizing software and platform components.

Prospective customers and vRAN solution providers will be able to review evaluation packages consisting of Intel FlexRAN reference software pre-integrated with Wind River Studio to simplify and accelerate customer trials and deployments of 5G vRAN.
