ADTRAN and Cambridge Communications Systems (CCS) have partnered to deliver self-organization mmWave technology for backhaul and access capabilities to both wired and wireless operators as they prepare for 5G densification and the benefits of next-generation mobile technologies.
This marks the latest step in ADTRAN's Mosaic Open Network Alliance strategy, established in August, which was designed to accelerate operators' transition to open programmable and scalable networks using the vendor's platform for SD-Access and network functions virtualization (NFV) solutions. ADTRAN Mosaic is the foundation of the alliance; the program gives members one place to find "vetted solutions," the vendor said.
Unveiled at Broadband World Forum in Berlin on Tuesday, the global agreement incorporates CCS' Metnet, a wireless mesh, self-organizing network (SOM) mmWave backhaul solution. This adds a wireless alternative to ADTRAN's fixed-access SD-Access based mmWave offering, said Hossam Salib, vice president of cable and wireless strategy at ADTRAN, in a statement.
