RAON software is designed to increase operational efficiency, simplify radio control and management, and reduce energy consumption at a time when global energy prices are negatively affecting operating expenses. By allowing the cell site gateway to act as a virtual internal unit with a single IP address, RAON powers unified monitoring and management capabilities. Informs the cell site router of any changes to connected outside radios, enabling data-driven decisions such as rerouting for optimal traffic flow.

The RAON-enabled two-in-one configuration combines a cell site router (CSR) and an indoor radio unit (IDU) in a single device, increasing flexibility for operators to meet changing capacity demands while achieve cost savings through:

  • Eliminating the need to power, cool, connect, and provide rack space for two separate devices.

  • Minimize energy consumption

  • Reduce operational, administrative, and maintenance (OAM) complexity, as well as provisioning complexity.

Diego Marí Moretón, Manager of Technologies and Ecosystems at Meta Connectivity and Leader of the TIP Open Optical Packet Transport Project Group commented: “Ceragon’s RAON software running on its IP-50FX hardware is the true realization of TIP’s DCSG goal of a truly open and disaggregated hardware and software solution. Ceragon is uniquely positioned as a vendor that currently has a solution represented in all three OpenSoftHaul segments: outdoor units, indoor units and network operating systems Ceragon’s IP-50FX solution not only met but exceeded all the requirements defined by the DCSG subgroup, and we are delighted to award them a ribbon that means that IP-50FX 50FX complies with TIP.”

Ulik Broida, Executive Vice President of Portfolio Management at Ceragon, commented“Providing our customers with intelligent multipurpose tools that improve operational efficiency, simplify network management and reduce power consumption has been a long-standing guiding principle for Ceragon. Today we deliver on that goal in a big way. The IP-50FX DCSG runs RAON in conjunction with IP Infusion’s ocNOS® offers phenomenal value. This open, dual-purpose design gives operators new levels of freedom and flexibility, allowing them to quickly respond to increasing capacity demands and making it easy to upgrade as they grow.”
