How XRAN® is Redefining Network Economic Efficiency: Stadio Olimpico Success Story

JMA Wireless, in partnership with Telecom Italia recently deployed virtualised technology in Stadio Olimpico, a 72,000-seat stadium near Rome. JMA Wireless converted the stadium’s traditional infrastructure decreasing their hardware footprint by 90% and their power usage by 70% while doubling the desired capacity.

How does virtualised software help operators?

For MNO’s, software like XRAN® makes expanding existing or creating new networks easier and more manageable than conventional hardware-based solutions. These virtualised networks allow for faster server provisioning and deployment and cost less to cool, power, and store.

Operators can benefit from virtualised RAN software by having a fast connection to keep pace with digital expectations. As the future of 5G approaches and more demands are placed on networks, this fast, reliable access is critical to creating a positive customer experience. Current JMA Wireless clients agree claiming that even in high-traffic locations, XRAN® is achieving unprecedented results, keeping their customers connected and content.

Virtualised RAN platforms are changing the future of connectivity worldwide, and as these networks evolve, businesses will benefit from this economic shift: As a part of virtualisation, it is important to move most of the traditional proprietary hardware into software. Transferring hardware into software then adding to components or containers makes it easy to move around. Radically changing the economics.

The future of 5G digital services relies on virtualised software solutions such as XRAN® because it is more efficient and economical when expanding mobile networks, improving the overall customer experience[1]: As businesses seek faster, more economical ways to manage their network, the innovators at JMA Wireless look forward to the future of 5G and improving connectivity worldwide.

XRAN® enables the ability to manage and reduce complexity improves customer value and network quality in an economically efficient way, paving the way for the new 5G digital services, such as immersive and virtual reality services.
