Lekha’s Marut Radio Unit is suitable for the deployment of a 5G network in macrocell environment. RU implements CUSM planes as defined in the ORAN 7-2x interface. Radio is designed to operate with an external antenna configuration. The data sheet refers to support for a few NR bands. Band support can be extended to any of the NR bands defined in the FR1 frequency range on request. RUs support external antenna options. Configuration management and monitoring of the Marut O-RU is enabled with a web-based element management system (EMS). The integrated web-based GUI manages a large number of Marut RUs in the network. EMS follows the Netconf/Yang model to communicate with RU.
