Open RAN: What should telcos do? webinar
First broadcast: 4th August 2020
Alongside the roll-out of 5G cores and radios, Open RAN has shot up the agenda. In this webinar STL Partners addressed the three most important sub-components of Open RAN (open-RAN, vRAN and C-RAN) and how they interact to enable a new, virtualized, less vendor-dominated RAN ecosystem.
The webinar covers:
- Why Open RAN matters – and why it will be about 4G (not 5G) in the short term
- Data-led overview of existing Open RAN initiatives and challenges
- Our recommended deployment strategies for operators
- What the vendors are up to – and how we expect that to change
