The GSMA today announced the nominees for the Global Mobile Awards 2017. Winners of the awards will be presented throughout Mobile World Congress, which takes place 27 February – 2 March in Barcelona.

progranArgela is Shortlisted at Global Mobile Awards 2017 in Outstanding Contribution for LTE Evolution to 5G Category for its ProgRAN (a patent-pending, fully programmable, SDN-based RAN solution for LTE and 5G, developed by Argela).

ProgRAN provides an intuitive, programmable RAN for MSPs so that fast, dynamic, and robust treatment of the RAN control plane is feasible. The ProgRAN solution is applicable for both typical as well as Cloud RAN deployments.

Using ProgRAN, MSPs can deploy, modify or introduce different scheduling, admission control, and handover management algorithms to different flows in different parts of their network and conduct such controls via a simple programming interface.
