Open Radio Access Networks (Open RAN)
Radio Access Network (RAN) takes the most significant chunk of the telecom operators’ investment. With the 5G era, the number of New Radio (NR) sites will dramatically increase to fulfill 5G use cases’ network requirements.
Open RAN technology enables a broader group of companies to participate in 5G by developing open standards, open interfaces, and open hardware to achieve the following:
- Give operators a wider pool of suppliers and a set of tools to manage interoperability
- Have innovative and flexible RAN architecture with a more vibrant ecosystem
- Achieve network openness and leave the reliant on a single vendor
