While working closely with Mobile Network Operators in previous projects, the Niral team understood the problem risk by Operators due to Vendor Lock-in, and challenges faced due to Proprietary, Closed, Rigid, and Expensive Solutions. It is predicted that 5G Networks needs to be 10X denser than 4G Networks. Denser network would require devices from more vendors leading to further risk of vendor lock-in.
Mobile Network Operators understand the risk of vendor lock-in and are fast transforming from traditional and proprietary solutions to openness and disaggregation. Most operators have set up their own Research and Development arm to have better control over their Vendors, Products, and Costs.
Niral Network’s co-founding team has a combined experience of more than 70 man-years in the 5G Networking Industry in India. They have rich product experience in Telecom, Data Center, and Enterprise verticals. The team has worked closely with customers in the US, India, Europe, Australia, Middle-East, and South-East Asia. They have co-founded multiple startups in the US and India and co-authored numerous patents and technical publications in the area of computer networks.
After multiple deliberations with customers, the Niral team came up with the concept of Open Product Framework. Niral Open Product Framework enables Mobile Network Operators to transition from Vendor Controlled to Operator Deliberated approach that reduces the risk of vendor lock-in.
