AirHop Launches the Industry’s First Comprehensive Portfolio of Field-proven xApps and rApps to Accelerate 4G and 5G Open RAN Deployments

About AirHop

AirHop Communications is a leading provider of cloud-native Open RAN automation and real-time optimization software solutions that deliver significant gains in spectral efficiency, lower operating costs and improved end-user quality of experience for 4G and 5G mobile networks.  AirHop’s Auptim family of O-RAN compliant near-RT xApps and AI/ML-based rApps provide O-RAN compliant intelligent RAN automation and optimization solutions.  AirHop’s eSON and eSON360 solutions provide commercially hardened and massively scalable near RT and AI/ML based RAN automation and optimization for pre-O-RAN architecture deployments.   AirHop’s solutions are backed by a comprehensive portfolio of patents and are deployed by some of the most innovative mobile network operators across millions of macro and small cells.

Starting with 4G mobile networks and extending even greater with 5G networks, real-time RAN intelligence becomes essential to dynamically characterize the RAN environment and make autonomous optimization decisions.  AirHop’s scalable and cloud-native closed-loop optimization software dynamically coordinates distributed network information in near-real time and make decisions from the broader network perspective to optimize the performance of the overall network.

AirHop works with a broad base of ecosystem of partners and is an active participant in the O-RAN Alliance, the Telecom Infra Project and Open Networking Foundation.  AirHop is headquartered in San Diego, California.

Support deployments for both the O-RAN Alliance reference architecture as well as traditional RAN architectures. The Auptim family of xApps and rApps are deployed on near-real-time and non-real-time RIC platforms, respectively in the O-RAN architecture. eSON provides both the scalable platform and use case features to support traditional RAN deployments and eSON360 AI/ML applications are deployed as centralized analytics in traditional mobile networks.

Intelligence, Automation and Optimization

The disaggregated, cloud-native architecture of Open RAN is fueling innovations for RAN intelligence, automation and optimization at a far more accelerated pace compared to traditional closed architectures. Deployment of intelligence, automation and optimization solutions has become mandatory to both greenfield and brownfield mobile operators to address key challenges:

  • Efficiently managing the growing complexity of 4G/5G networks
  • Meet the coverage, capacity, and latency requirements of 5G networks
  • Manage the cost, performance and agility with the large number of cells required for 5G networks.
  • Ensure network scalability through automation and performance optimization technologies.

AirHop Solutions
