Radisys has been working with TIP since its inception to disaggregate the eNodeB into functional components aligned around the LTE protocol layers. Radisys has made several contribution of its Intellectual Property towards community to build the ecosystem for open source solutions. Some of its contributions to TIP include: E-UTRAN RAN eNodeB stack, E-UTRAN EPC stack, integration with OAI eNodeB stack, development of Open API definitions, and end to end solution integration to demonstrate true multi-vendor vRAN solution with an all IP-based front-haul. Radisys is actively involved in several TIP projects such as OpenCellular, OpenRAN, vRAN Fronthaul and Solutions Integration.

ABOUT Telecom Infra Project (TIP)
Despite complaints of vendor-lock in, operators continue to operate in silos, taking their own approaches to disaggregation of Radio Access Network (RAN). Telecom Infrastructure Project (TIP), launched by Facebook, sets up as an open industry initiative, to move the industry away from proprietary hardware and instead brings in more software-centric solutions from multiple vendors resulting in a faster roll out of features and lower capital expenses. TIP is focused on leveraging open source concepts in developing unbundled and programmable wireless access, front-haul, and backhaul networks; and helping operators understand how to commercially deploy and support disaggregated multi-vendor virtualized RAN solutions on General Purpose Processing Platforms (GPPP).
