ITRI has planned a small cell system that satisfies product requirements such as large coverage areas, high capacity, high interoperability, high integration, and cloudification. ITRI has developed its 5G small cell technology in sync with global standards by completing the 32-antenna O-RAN small cell prototype and the O-RAN 20-watt high-power small cell prototype, establishing OEM/ODM capabilities for industry. Moreover, ITRI completed the first phase of development of a 5G non-terrestrial network(NTN), directly connecting mobile phones to satellites and driving the development of the emerging satellite NTN industry. By partnering with leading semiconductor companies, ITRI has also achieved the world’s first 5G NTN satellite mobile phone connection in a lab environment. ITRI also developed a private network management system, creating products which passed network access tests conducted by telecommunications companies.
Applications & Benefits
In addition, it created 5G O-RAN base stations, winning orders from major international telecommunications companies, thus venturing into the edge computing market and upgrading the local 5G industry.
