CommAgility, a company that has 10 years of experience in the implementation and verification of 3GPP specifications to enable small cell and terminal product developers has developed a new 3GPP-compliant 5G NR software solution that includes UE and gNodeB PHY and Protocol Stack, as well as 5G Core (5GC) designed for use in 5G small cells and private networks. In addition to a complete Rel. 15/16 small cell software solution, as a member of the O-RAN Alliance, CommAgility can support development of O-RAN compliant products.
The software solution is scalable and uses low-cost, low-power silicon devices where desired. Key features include:
- UE and gNodeB PHY available as reference chains, providing ultimate flexibility to improve portability and scalability
- Pre-ported and validated PHY and Stack, delivering an IP hardware and software block for integration into a silicon design
- Pre-integrated PHY and Stack on silicon devices, for immediate use in a wireless product development
- Full source code availability and design services for tailored applications
- 5G Core (5GC) for 5G small cells and private networks
In addition to the main 5G NR software blocks, CommAgility provides production-ready reference solutions with integrated and validated 5G software. CommAgility’s integrated 5G NR gNodeB is based on NXP SoC devices – Layerscape for the Protocol Stack, and Layerscape Access for the PHY – to achieve optimum performance and cost. Alongside Random Access Network (RAN) software development, CommAgility is developing a complementary range of hardware solution platforms, from board level to a complete, production ready gNodeB.
CommAgility products support 5G StandAlone (SA), as well as 5G Sub-6 GHz Non-StandAlone (NSA) when paired with CommAgility’s CA-K2L-RF2 eNodeB, an integrated and cost-effective 4G product for the anchor channel.
In addition to delivering 3GPP standards-compliant products, CommAgility’s team of highly experienced engineers are available to customize the company’s products to meet special requirements. Although 5G standards will ultimately expand to cover some of today’s 4G customized solutions, only companies with deep wireless knowledge and capabilities can actually support customers to successful product deployment for niche applications.
