Reading time ( words)

MaxLinear, Inc., a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog, digital and mixed-signal integrated circuits, announced that it has joined the O-RAN ALLIANCE, a world-wide community of mobile network operators and technology suppliers whose mission is to re-shape the Radio Access Network (RAN) industry towards more intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile networks.

Open RAN provides operators with a new opportunity to build their radio networks using interoperable network equipment sourced from different best-in-class infrastructure suppliers. High-performance, flexible, and cost-effective Radio Units (RUs) are key elements to every Open RAN network. MaxLinear's transceiver solutions provide a proven software-defined radio platform that enables equipment vendors to rapidly deliver Open RAN RUs that meet these goals with industry-leading features, flexibility, form factor, and power efficiency.

"Allowing broader participation through open architecture is a proven model in the technology sector,” said Brendan Walsh, Vice President of MaxLinear’s Wireless Infrastructure Group. “The O-RAN ALLIANCE is driving this innovation in mobile networks. We are excited to help realize this goal by contributing to the development of interoperable fronthaul interfaces and enabling the rapid deployment of next-generation O-RAN based 5G RUs using our industry-leading transceiver solutions and digital linearization technology.”

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
