Abstract of the Webinar
Virtual RAN - or vRAN - can improve network performance, reduce costs, and simplify infrastructure expansion for network service providers, all while providing the necessary resources that maintain good customer experiences. The new virtualized architecture deconstructs parts of the RAN, which enables operators to gain economies of scale through software-defined functions as well as improve processing efficiency required by latency-sensitive applications.
A virtual radio access network (vRAN) is a type of RAN with its networking functions separated from the hardware it runs on. The control and data planes of the vRAN are also separated as part of the virtualization.
This type of RAN is heavily associated with 5G networks because the networks need virtualization to support the use cases and performance requirements of 5G.
Mr. Chengappa has been associated with HP/HPE for a decade and is currently associated with Compute Business Group, catering to the requirements and solutions for telco on NFV Infrastructure. From an early career as an intern software engineer, his current focus areas have moved him into defining, building, and delivering NFV-based telco solutions bringing together technologies that form building blocks integrating Cloud-native applications / VNFs on NFVi platforms. He is also associated with a few of the workgroups in O-RAN Alliance and OpenRan under Telecom Infra Project (TIP).
In tandem is also associated with CCICI - Cloud Computing Innovation Council of India as a founding member and has extensively collaborated Cloud Interoperability and Portability 1.0 phase, where he had contributed to defining some of the use cases around Cloud Interporaility for India ecosystem, as an outcome of CIP 1.0, he represented CCICI at Open Infrastructure Summit, Shanghai 2019 where he presented a talk "Cloud Interoperability and Open Standards for Digital India"
Being an IEEE Senior Member, and being part of the IEEE Bangalore Section he is playing an active role in Member Development initiatives, along with Industry engagement, Professional Activities Committee.
