Sterlite Tech, a global data network solutions company, will be contributing to the O-RAN Alliance, a global carrier-led consortium that promotes software-based, extensible Radio Access Network (RAN). Building on a foundation of virtualized network elements and standardised interfaces that fully embrace higher levels of embedded intelligence and openness, Sterlite Tech will contribute to and leverage reference designs developed by the O-RAN Alliance, such as their open-source code to build a near real-time controller and distributed units, with white box hardware.

"As a contributor to the O-RAN Alliance, Sterlite Tech is committed to evolve RANs. With our Programmable, Open, Disaggregated Solution (PODS), we are contributing our capabilities and expertise to build future RANs on the foundation of virtualised network elements, white-box hardware, open and standardised interfaces. Once developed, our near-real time controller will help the Alliance operators accelerate the development and commercialisation of 5G networks globally,” said Dr Badri Gomatam, Group CTO, Sterlite Tech.


“Our PODS enable programmability at the hardware and software level of RANs. By enabling programmability right at the core of the network, our PODS ensures that operators have greater visibility and control–empowering them to affordably upgrade, monitor and scale their networks, while enhancing their customers’ experience,” explained Ayush Sharma, Head of Programmable Networking and Intelligence, Sterlite Tech.
