Accelleran, a provider of OpenRAN software solutions for 4G/5G networks, has announced that it is making its 5G Standalone dRAX cloud-native OpenRAN software components immediately available.

Intended to deliver reliable, cost-effective, and scalable solutions for both 4G and 5G networks, dRAX implements the key control and resource management functions of the RAN, including Service Orchestration, RIC, CU-CP, and CU-UP.

Comprising cloud-native and microservice-based software components, dRAX enables real-world deployment of multi-vendor, disaggregated OpenRAN, aligned with open standards such as the O-RAN Alliance.

Fully integrated with orchestration platforms such as Kubernetes, dRAX is able to support cost-effective deployments by leveraging standard IT DevOps and CI/CD practices. Along with straightforward implementation, the dRAX RIC also offers a production-ready OpenRAN development platform, enabling real-time RAN data to be leveraged to create AI-based xApps and enhanced RAN intelligence and automation.

dRAX's scalability supports small-scale office deployments up to large-scale solutions with multi-node clustering, load balancing, geo-redundancy, and edge services, benefitting mobile network operators, neutral host operators and system integrators alike.

Developers can either integrate dRAX software components into their own solutions or leverage Accelleran's capability to deliver turnkey OpenRAN networks.

“Accelleran’s approach with dRAX is unique in the marketplace, unleashing the full potential of OpenRAN by addressing several key requirements for organisations deploying private networks in different verticals,” said Frédéric Van Durme, Accelleran’s CEO. “Our customers have the choice of building dRAX into their solutions, or they can benefit from our expertise in pre-integrating dRAX with a range of DU, RU and Core solutions from our partners within the OpenRAN ecosystem.”
