Why Choose VMware Telco Cloud Platform RAN

RAN-Optimized Platform

Support vRAN functions with tight RAN partner integration from a common horizontal platform, placing applications at the best locations to serve their functional purposes.

RAN-Driven Performance

Reduce latency and eliminate jitter to meet and exceed stringent RAN performance requirements.

Cloud-First Automation

Provision over thousands of distributed platform instances and programmatically configure the underpinning platform availability and resource at the time of vRAN functions onboarding.

RAN-Focused Ecosystem

Accelerate the time to revenue by removing the complex vRAN functions integration while optimizing the performance and resource utilization. 

Intrinsic Security

Safeguard your services by isolating each vRAN function within the virtualization layer, separating its management from other functions.

5G Multi-Services Hub

Monetize from your vRAN investment with a horizontal platform that builds, deploys, and operates your custom 5G applications alongside vRAN functions.
