5G Ran Architecture

5G Radio Access Network (RAN) architecture is a new way of implementing mobile phone networks using 5G technology. It is designed to handle the increased data demand that 5G has created and the need for faster speeds and low latency.

The 5G RAN architecture is transforming from a monolithic architecture to an open RAN  functional split architecture and     small cell architecture. Nybsys offers all three-architecture flavors for our customers depending on what functional requirements they want to achieve.

5GC Architecture 1

Monolithic NG-RAN Architecture

This is a type of network architecture that uses a single, unified platform to support all 5G functions. This type of architecture is simpler and more efficient than previous generations of wireless networks and allows for more seamless communication between devices.

Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) Architecture

It is a totally disaggregated approach to deploying 5G RAN front-haul and mid-haul networks built entirely on cloud-native principles. Under O-RAN architecture, the Baseband Unit (BBU) is divided into two functional components, a Distributed Unit (DU) and Central Unit (CU). The CU can be further decoupled into distinct control plane (CU-CP) and user plane (CU-UP) functions.

5G small Cell architecture

5G small Cell architecture: small cells are typically low-power base stations that use femtocells or picocells. They can be used to provide coverage in indoor or outdoor locations where traditional Macro-cells are not feasible. 5G small cells are dominating the industry right now since it covers short-range and high-speed data. There are two types of 5G Small Cell Architectures offered by Nybsys for adoption.

  • Integrated base station architecture where radio and gNodeB are together, including antennas.
  • Integrated base station architecture where radio and gNodeB are together, including antennas.
5G Indoor Distributed Coverage

Except for integrated 5G base stations, all our 5G Radio units supports the Enhanced CPRI (eCPRI) specification that defines a high-speed interface to transport uncompressed signals between Baseband Processor Units and Remote Radio Heads (RRHs). The eCPRI protocol utilizes the Ethernet MAC layer for transport and is designed to be interoperable with existing CPRI equipment.
