0 15

Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting, and business process services company, and HFCL Limited, a leading telecom equipment manufacturer and technology provider, have announced a collaboration to develop a variety of 5G transport products, including the Cell Site Router, DU (Distributed Unit) Aggregation Router, and CU (Centralized Unit) Aggregation Router.

5G technology is being embraced by businesses all over the world because of its ability to speed innovation, create new business models, and generate income. Wipro, which has expertise in product engineering, transport network technology, and 5G, will collaborate with HFCL to create equipment. The offering intends to help businesses achieve their 5G-enabled visions and accelerate the delivery of high-quality 5G solutions to market. For hardware integration, validation, and pre-certification, Wipro will use Tarang Labs, its product compliance and certification labs in Bangalore.

“We are proud to partner with HFCL in their journey to invent the next generation of 5G products for network service providers in India and globally. We will leverage our strong experience in network equipment engineering, expertise in 5G/LTE and VLSI (Very-Large-Scale Integration) system design, engineering design services and embedded software. We are confident that this collaboration will ensure an accelerated go-to-market for HFCL,”

said Satya Easwaran, Country Head, India, Wipro Limited.

HFCL is currently investing in a portfolio of 5G radio access network (RAN) and transportation technologies. Due to substantially increased bandwidth per 5G cell site, densification of cell sites in 5G, Ethernet and IP-based transport, and new services with tight latency requirements like Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, and Robotics-based precision manufacturing, CSPs’ transport network needs to be modernised. To assist CSPs in transforming their transport network, HFCL is creating 5G transport products for the fronthaul, midhaul, and backhaul.

“Wipro is a key partner for HFCL because of its world-class engineering and in-depth experience on hardware design, embedded software and its in-house certification and compliance labs (Tarang). HFCL’s comprehensive portfolio of 5G transport products (which are under development), that include Cell Site Router, DU Aggregation Router and CU Aggregation Router, will enable CSPs to modernize their backhaul networks and make them ready for 5G services. These 5G transport products, based on open standards, will help operators realize the benefits of network disaggregation, and are in the true spirit of ‘Make in India’ for the world,”

said Mahendra Nahata, Managing Director, HFCL.

The 5G Transport products from HFCL are built on merchant silicon, network disaggregated architecture, and open standards like TIP and OCP (Open Compute Project). Wipro is a member of the TIP community and has developed various cell site routers for CSPs around the world.
