Airspan is a U.S.-based provider of groundbreaking, award-winning software and hardware for 5G networks, and a pioneer in end-to-end Open RAN solutions that provide interoperability with other vendors. As a result of the breakthrough technology and significant R&D investments to build and expand mmWave and sub-6 GHz solutions, Airspan believes it is uniquely positioned to generate sustainable growth for both 5G revenue and market share through Open RAN, private networks, fixed wireless access, and CBRS. Network providers and new entrants globally are building out 5G networks in what is expected to be a multi-year process, triggering significant capital expenditures. With over one million cells shipped to 1,000 customers in more than 100 countries, Airspan believes its scale is a key differentiator that most Open RAN competitors cannot match, which provides the ability to aggressively compete against traditional, incumbent infrastructure vendors based overseas.
Established originally in 1992 as a product division of DSC Communications, Airspan became a standalone company in 1998 and today has more than 1000 customers in over 100 countries around the world.
