Cellwize Wireless Technologies (Cellwise), a provider of mobile network automation and orchestration, has launched its next-gen RAN automation and orchestration platform, Cellwize Chime.

The new offering will enable network operators to achieve the scale and agility required to roll-out and maintain its 5G networks while at the same time continue to manage their legacy networks.

“We are very excited to roll out Chime - our new generation RAN automation open platform. “Chime brings strategic value to MNOs in the age of 5G and addresses some of the most critical economical and operational challenges they are facing today.

“We are proud to work side-by-side with some of the largest and most advanced MNOs in the world to help them address and overcome these challenges,” said Ofir Zemer (pictured), CEO of Cellwize.

Cellwize has built an AI-powered RAN automation platform that automates the deployment, design, management and optimisation of 5G networks, while seamlessly managing the underlying legacy networks.

In addition, Cellwize Chime provides an open, centralised layer that enables an orchestrated ecosystem of automation which allows MNOs to manage and control both legacy and 5G networks, RAN and vRAN. 

The company’s technology ingests raw data from the RAN and external sources such as crowdsourcing and geolocation, abstracts it, and makes it available to any application and solution through open APIs.

This enables a unified application layer across all vendors, which connects network applications and algorithms to any OSS or vendor in a guarded and controlled way, allowing mobile network operators to accelerate their 5G businesses, and enhances RAN automation across the network, while also reducing operating costs and advanced time to market of 5G services.

Cellwize also added a new business solution to its portfolio – Chime Developer, which allows for self-development by transforming ideas into working prototypes over the Chime platform.
