Cellwize Lauded by Frost & Sullivan for Its Cloud-Based, AI Open RAN Automation Platform, Chime
Cellwize’s automation platform successfully reduces the operator’s operating expenditure and the time-to-market of its 5G deployment and creates an open ecosystem for network deployments
Based on its recent analysis of the global radio access network (RAN) automation market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Cellwize with the 2020 Global Product Line Strategy Leadership Award for its Chime platform. Cellwize has pushed the envelope by engineering a solution that is easy to integrate into a multi-vendor RAN environment, and which enhances the level of automation and management.
“Cellwize has expanded its focus from optimizing the RAN to managing and automating the RAN itself, including implementing automation principles across the heterogeneous network and application layers. This vision resulted in the development of its flagship RAN management and automation platform, Cellwize Chime,” said Rohan Joy Thomas Industry Analyst. “Cellwize Chime utilizes AI and ML and is completely cloud-based and vendor-agnostic, has an open micro-services based architecture to address many key use cases, and is commercialized via flexible business models, including a pay-as-you-use model.”

Significantly, Cellwize Chime has enhanced Artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities, which change the information collected from external sources into a unified and open data model and exposes that data to Cellwize’s open application programming interfaces (APIs). It then passes the information to the operator’s many different applications that are deployed on the legacy Radio Access Technologies such as 2G, 3G, 4G, and the upcoming 5G deployment. On average, the platform helps network operators save 60 percent of their OPEX, which would have otherwise been spent on getting the RAN operational.
“Cellwize Chime moves from a static radio network policy to one that is adaptive through an enhanced AI/ML-type of governance, which provides carriers with significant flexibility to avoid vendor lock-ins, without going to their incumbent vendor for solutions,” noted Thomas. “In a multi-cloud environment that consists of edge compute and centralized clouds, Cellwize Chime can seamlessly integrate different components with each other across different environments.”
