Introduction to Nokia vRAN
Nokia vRAN optimizes resource utilization and reduces service latency, increasing agility and scalability for mobile networks. It adapts to the network conditions, both macro and small cells, to enable optimal performance under different conditions. Nokia vRAN is a virtualized centralized RAN (vRAN) solution that enables efficient resource utilization and fast time-to-market of new and existing virtualized network functions. The solution enables service providers to offer carrier-grade services across the entire network at scale by using the common set of hardware and software components deployed at multiple sites, reducing the need for special purpose hardware. The Nokia vRAN architectural design, based on the Open Network Platform, provides the ability to deploy virtualized network functions and services. With a single VNF Manager, you can manage all VNFs across the cloud and all physical network elements. Nokia virtual RAN (vRAN) is a cloud-native end-to-end solution that dynamically deploys, instantiates and scales virtual base stations as well as virtual network functions (VNFs). Mobile operators get new opportunities to optimize their networks and reduce operational costs. The vRAN is a virtualized RAN (vRAN) solution that enables an enterprise to connect all devices and access services via a single centralized mobile core. It has been designed using an open source core and a private IP network and can be integrated with other parts of the LTE architecture, including distributed antenna systems (DAS), small cells, fixed wireless access (FWA) systems, etc.
Nokia vRAN (Virtual RAN) delivers the performance of a virtualized LTE network to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of your mobile network. The solution provides real-time traffic steering and policy control, with the ability to manage any amount of LTE sites optimally through an API server. Nokia vRAN is a carrier-grade virtualized RAN solution that provides the features, performance and operational efficiency needed to support today’s demanding data traffic. By efficiently connecting base stations with each other and the cloud, Nokia vRAN increases service flexibility for carriers and operators, improves network capacity and coverage for users.

Deliver an optimized mobile experience while lowering your network costs. With Nokia Virtual RAN (vRAN), packets are not only delivered, but can be delivered with the appropriate performance and QoS characteristics. vRAN enables cloud service providers and telco operators to build virtual Layer 2 Network Functions (L2NFs), including L2 switching, bridge, and router functions. The virtual L2NFs run on a single box to create a density advantage compared with physical hardware. Nokia Service Engine is a software-defined radio (SDR) virtualized baseband that enables service providers to support their mobile networks with advanced features, like machine learning and artificial intelligence. It is designed to simplify the deployment of LTE in optimized form factors, allowing for faster time to market.
