Airspan Control Platform (ACP)

Powering Connectivity Across the Spectrum

At Airspan, we understand that the backbone of any successful 4G and 5G deployment is robust and intelligent network management platform. This understanding is at the core of our Airspan Control Platform (ACP), a unified management solution that transcends traditional FCAPS boundaries, offering unparalleled control and efficiency for Public and Private Networks alike.

Public Networks: Unleashing Efficiency with NBIF

At its core is the North Bound Interface (NBIF), a gateway designed for seamless integration with MNO Operational Support Systems (OSS) through standard APIs. ACP's robustness and scalability are evidenced by its successful integration with over 400,000 small cells in a main Tier-1 MNO in the USA, a testament to our platform's carrier-grade readiness and scalability. NBIF simplifies processes and enriches data driven decisions:

  • Plug and Play Configuration

Automatically import configurations to enable zero-touch setup.

  • Comprehensive Management

Provides fault management, configuration details, performance metrics, and real-time status directly to your NMS/OSS, simplifying RF data analysis, troubleshooting, and optimization.

Private Networks: Simplifying Complexity

In the realm of Private Networks, ACP shines by offering unparalleled levels of automation, service orchestration, and a comprehensive, single pane of glass view.

This holistic approach empowers network administrators to efficiently manage and optimize their networks, ensuring high levels of performance and reliability. Key to this offering is the CBRS SAS Proxy, a domain-specific capability that ensures compliance and optimized spectrum utilization for CBRS deployments.

With ACP, private network operators gain access to full-feature set dashboards, analytics, and optimization tools, along with an API for seamless integration with customer portals. Whether deployed in public/private clouds or on-premises, ACP offers a flexible and cloud-based solution that meets the unique needs of Private Networks, simplifying monitoring, analytics, and lifecycle management.
