Bangalore: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced a partnership with Exaware, a leading provider of Open Network routing solutions. The partnership will jointly develop advanced engineering solutions that foster innovation in the networking industry, streamline 5G technology upgrades, and open the door to future 6G compatibility.
Traditional Radio Access Network (RAN) networks are slow to advance, and expensive to upgrade because existing hardware and software options are tightly coupled, and provided by a single vendor. Wipro and Exaware are developing engineering products and solutions that will decouple hardware from software, enabling communication service providers (CSPs) to select different hardware and software vendors. This, in turn, will promote innovation by network equipment providers, advance Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways (DCSG), enable an end-to-end disaggregated Open RAN infrastructure, and ultimately drive down network costs.
“Leveraging the combined engineering expertise of Wipro and Exaware, operators will be able to build flexible, self-optimizing networks, and introduce services that equip them for future growth while reducing their total cost of ownership,” said Thomas Muller, CTO – Engineering and R&D Services, Wipro Limited.
“The Network Operating System makes it possible for CSPs to transform physical networks into virtual networks by adopting disaggregation and O-RAN principles. Exaware’s capabilities in the IP routing space can play a key role as Wipro helps CSPs modernize their networks and prepare for the future,” said Ben Afshari, Vice President of Sales & Business Development, Exaware.
Wipro has played a key role in bringing disaggregated and software-defined network solutions to market. Through its own expertise, technology investments, and growing partner ecosystem, Wipro will continue to be a significant player, delivering personalized transformation solutions to clients worldwide.
