Persistent and Cisco inaugurate 5G lab in India

Pune in India is now host to what is described as a state-of-the-art 5G lab thanks to Persistent Systems, a digital engineering provider, which recently inaugurated the lab as part of a partnership with technology giant Cisco Systems.

The 5G lab will aim to provide a testing and development environment for network functions and product development activities for operators and network equipment vendors, as well as for communications, media, and IoT independent software vendors (ISVs).

The lab will encourage interoperability and quick deployment to achieve faster monetisation of 5G solutions, and will provide a setup to test end-to-end industry use cases in multi-cloud orchestration, open RAN, MEC, and more.

It will also allow developers to conduct operator trials and integration tests and provide resources for quickly validating and improving interoperability and system-generated tests for pre-operator testing.

The lab's primary focus will be to facilitate the development of products and services that can take advantage of 5G's capabilities. This includes testing and demonstrating the ability of 5G applications to operate in a network environment that provides high-speed connectivity, low latency, and high reliability.

The lab can also provide a platform for 5G application providers to showcase their products and services, as well as demonstrate how 5G can enhance user experience and drive business growth.

Persistent says the 5G lab will unite flagship network OEMs, ISVs, and a team of experts from Persistent's ecosystem to enable and support application providers with market-leading open-source solutions in a multi-vendor 5G test environment.

The lab supports the latest 5G-powered scenarios, including network slice management for private 5G, AI-powered closed loop autonomous network management, full stack observability, and industrial IoT.
