Arcadia, CA- December 30, 2019

Groundhog Technologies has joined the Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) Alliance as one of the contributors toward the “openness” and “intelligence” of radio access networks (RAN). The O-RAN Alliance was founded in February 2018 by world-wide operator-dominated industry groups, including founding members, AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, NTT DoCoMo, and Orange. Embodying its two core principles of intelligence and openness, O-RAN Alliance members and contributors have committed to evolving radio access networks all over the world.

The increasing wireless infrastructure virtualization and digital transformation in the industry has inevitably led to the rapid development and spread of this open alternative to the traditionally closed, hardware-based RAN architecture. Increasingly more operators and vendors have considered these open and virtualized networks, including 5G networks as a foundation of next-generation wireless infrastructure. Meanwhile, Groundhog Technologies is pleased to take part in the group to work closely with its peers to drive the industry forward to open, interoperable interfaces, and RAN virtualization.

Groundhog Technologies’ expertise lies in our ability to deliver network and mobility intelligence revealing extensive radio network visibility across every technology (2G, 3G, 4G & 5G), and provide in-depth insights into subscriber’s mobility and usage behavior. Aligning perfectly with O-RAN’s objectives, we adopt an open approach enabling the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to provide operators with a data-rich, vendor-agnostic platform for geo-location, network optimization as well as data monetization use cases to better manage their networks and achieve a higher return on investment (ROI).
