Network Disaggregation - OpenRAN Journey, from Concept to Deployments
30 June: 13:00 - 13:35
My MWC Online, Hall Virtual
Connectivity creates a large opportunity for the economy, including for the enterprise segment, where they will facilitate a massive automation of industrial processes; for municipalities, providing the infrastructure to support smart cities, and for the consumer segment, where new digital experiences and products will be possible with connectivity.
To make this happen, operators need a different approach to networks, with more collaboration both at the infrastructure level and at the technical level, to achieve the required economies of scale that will support network investments. In the particular case of technology, the network supply chain is currently very concentrated in a few vendors, and an increase in its robustness will also create incentives for new investments.
This panel will include discussion with 3 major operators about (1) demand signal for OpenRAN solutions, (2) their OpenRAN journey, and (3) OpenRAN roadmap, SoC strategy.
