Marvell announced it has joined the Open RAN Policy Coalition. The Coalition is comprised of policy makers, operators, and equipment providers who work in partnership to promote policies that advance the adoption of open and interoperable solutions within the RAN market.

Marvell is also a member of the O-RAN Alliance and a contributor to the Open Networking Foundation CORD project.

“The combination of technological innovation, open standards and forward-looking policy coordination are essential ingredients in creating the diverse, competitive market envisioned by the Open RAN Policy Coalition,” said executive vice president and general manager of the Processors Business Unit at Marvell Raj Singh, in a press release. “Even today, our RAN product offerings have been influenced by our experiences in operator trials, consortiums such as the O-RAN Alliance and other standards-focused activities. We look forward to bringing these perspectives into the Coalition and further propelling innovation in 5G.”

The RAN Solutions developed by Marvell allow suppliers and new market participants to deliver next-generation wireless communications.

Through its diverse group of information and communications tech companies, the Open RAN Policy Coalition strives to break through technological and market barriers to promote the competitive wireless market. Further, its goal is to lay the foundation for a future in which radio access network architectures will be based on open and interoperable interfaces.
