In conjunction with our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce our eleventh site in the Next-Generation Infrastructure series: The 2021 Open RAN Report: Unlocking Open RAN – An Infrastructure Viewpoint.
The 2021 Open RAN Report provides technology readers with perspectives and insights from industry leaders and innovators like Aarna Networks, Capgemini Engineering, DZS, Intel, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, LF Networking, Spirent Communications, Wind River, and VMware as well as telecommunication organizations including Dish and Rakuten Symphony. We’ll be rotating in new content periodically from thought leaders, as well as our sponsors and partners, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into Open RAN.
Open RAN plays a crucial role in fostering innovation and openness, creating standard APIs, and enabling automation. The concreteness of O-RAN standards (compared to initial ETSI NFV efforts) and carriers’ warm embrace of players like Airspan, Altiostar (acquired by Rakuten), ASOCS, Casa Systems, Mavenir, Parallel Wireless, Radisys, along with the support of Intel, Nokia, and Samsung, (and Ericsson) increase the odds of success for the Open RAN movement.
The key to Open RAN’s success will be the collaboration between the telcos, vendors, system integrators, and network solution vendors. With numerous decisions to be made, our report examines key open RAN infrastructure considerations for service providers, integrators and enterprises as they contemplate adoption of solutions based on Open RAN principles.
Download the report to get AvidThink’s perspectives on Open RAN infrastructure and O-RAN adoption along with relevant trends, organizations and standards.
