Cohere and Mavenir Announce a Multi-G Solution Which Includes Spectrum Multiplier MIMO Solution for 4G, 5G, Open RAN and OTFS
SAN JOSE, CA and RICHARDSON, TX, February 15, 2023—Cohere Technologies, the innovator of 4G/5G Universal Spectrum Multiplier software for RAN and Open RAN, and OTFS waveform for 6G and Mavenir, the network software provider building the future of networks with cloud-native software that runs on any cloud, have entered into an agreement to accelerate the transition of proprietary RAN to a fully Open RAN Multi-G solution for 4G, 5G and OTFS.
Mavenir’s Open RAN Intelligent Controller (O-RIC) offers Network Intelligence as a Service (NIaaS) that provides deep, fine-grained insights about the network enabling solutions with advanced state of the art intelligence. Mavenir’s O-RIC enables the realization of various use cases with performance guarantees, creating premium near-real time service options for individual mobile subscribers and meeting service level assurances for enterprise customers. For example, in Traffic Steering use cases monitored, an improvement of cell spectral efficiency between 30% to 40% was observed.
Mavenir’s O-RIC enables the creation of differentiated services through open APIs. Adding Cohere’s innovations enables a Multi-G software platform that has compelling performance, security measures, capital efficiency, and power consumption. Mavenir’s O-RIC is currently in deployment with two, tier-one Communications Service Providers (CSPs).
“Our partnership with Cohere leverages Mavenir’s Open RAN leadership, further enriching the capabilities of Open RAN to deliver higher spectral efficiencies, higher user performance with low power consumption,” said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir’s President, CEO. “We look forward to bringing new innovations in 5G and 6G with OTFS to market together.”
“This is a true win-win partnership, and we are excited to work with Mavenir to accelerate the creation of a truly open, highly differentiated, scalable solution for operators that will enable continued revenue growth and profitability,” said Ray Dolan, Cohere’s Chairman and CEO. “Mavenir’s success to date with operators provides a solid foundation for Cohere to integrate our Universal Spectrum Multiplier with their 4G and 5G solutions, while creating a smooth path forward to OTFS.”
Cohere’s Universal Spectrum Multiplier software can be integrated by network equipment suppliers in the RAN or as an xApp in the Telco Cloud and improves network performance up to 2x with multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) beamforming for existing FDD and TDD networks. Cohere has already demonstrated up to 2x performance improvement for 4G FDD and 5G TDD for several leading mobile operators. Cohere’s OTFS wireless system is a candidate for 6G. OTFS can provide reliable, affordable wireless communications even under extreme doppler such as hypersonic speeds.
