Comcores offers a proven and feature-rich O-RAN RU implementation for plug-and-play deployment of this standard. The O-RU O-RAN IP is a fully scalable solution that enables both sub 6 GHz and mmWave applications and optionally supports features like compression and beamforming. The solution can be provided integrated with MAC, PCS and IEEE 1588 PTP IP’s. Likewise, a DFE including JESD204B/C interface can be provided for the antenna side. M-plane SW can be delivered for easy interfacing to CPU. The IP is interoperability tested with FlexRan and provides a solid method of enabling O-RAN.


  • Support for up to four 25G Ethernet Links
  • Supports both TDD and FDD operations
  • Beamformer as an option
  • Supports wide variety of channel configurations
  • Compression available
