Accelleran RAN Intelligent Controller: RAN Automation

The RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) plays a pivotal role in advancing Open Network architectures by fostering vendor interoperability and enhancing network intelligence, flexibility, and programmability. This innovation is crucial for service providers as it helps in cutting down both infrastructure and operational expenses, elevating network efficiency, and amplifying business adaptability. Moreover, RIC paves the way for generating additional revenue through customised services, network slicing, and indoor location services.

Accelleran’s dRAX-RIC, a leading RAN Intelligent Controller, is a trusted choice for operators and integrators seeking a production-ready platform to harness the power of Open real-time RAN data and control mechanisms. Its versatility allows users to seamlessly design and integrate their AI-based xApps, thereby significantly enhancing RAN intelligence and automation.

Our RIC is specifically designed to enable the onboarding of third-party applications that automate and optimise RAN operations at scale. These capabilities support innovative use cases that reduce mobile operators’ total cost of ownership (TCO) and enhance customers’ quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS).

Crafted with user convenience in mind, dRAX-RIC comes with ready-to-use xApps boilerplate code and fully documented APIs. This accessibility makes it an inviting platform for third-party developers, enabling them to not only quickly create their unique xApps but also smoothly integrate RAN intelligence and control into their specific workflow.

An elevated telecoms environment, powered by sophisticated AI capabilities and streamlined automation.

xApps / rApps: Unlocking Network Potential

xApps/rApps, created by out intuitive SDK platform and deployed on our RIC, are designed to enable operators and private networks to infuse new functionalities and services into their networks. From optimising resource allocation during peak times to orchestrating new services, and even harnessing advanced data analytics, xApps/rApps are the catalysts for proactive, intelligent network adaptations.

Below are some examples of xApps/rApps created by Accelleran and third parties using our SDK .

Energy Efficiency

This xApp optimises the energy efficiency of the network. It can analyse the energy consumption patterns of different network elements and identify opportunities for energy savings. 

The energy and cost savings will vary depending on the size and architecture of the network. If you’d like to hear more, get in touch today and book a meeting with us.

Network Monitoring 

This xApp can automates the network monitoring process and provide real-time insights into the performance of the OpenRAN network.

It can detect network anomalies, identify performance bottlenecks, and provide network operators with real-time alerts and notifications.

Other xApps/rApps and use cases:

  • Network Optimisation
  • Traffic Steering
  • ANR and PCI Allocation
  • Service Orchestration

More xApps/rApps are being created on a regular basis. Book a meeting or get in touch to learn more.

Accelleran RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) SDK for developers

Accelleran is committed to making the RAN developer-friendly and fostering an environment where developers can create, test and launch their own apps. The Accelleran RIC SDK and accompanying documentation have been designed to streamline all stages of this development process.

The Accelleran RIC SDK program invites developers to create xApps and rApps for Accelleran’s RAN Intelligent Controller. Accelleran provides an intuitive Software Development Kit (SDK) and a range of other guides to assist our partners in developing and launching applications that run on Near-Real-Time RIC (xApps) and Non-Real-Time RIC (rApps). These apps will add to a rich catalogue of easy-to-acquire and deploy apps for end customers and networks.
