After Show Live

The After Show was broadcast live at the end of Day Three of the TelecomTV Summit on Open RAN. TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels and Ray Le Maistre were joined by panelists for this end-of-day question and answer session. Among the questions raised by our audience were:

When can we expect to see rApps and xApps running on various RICs in a truly plug-and-play manner?
Will the openness of Open RAN make it less or more secure than conventional RAN?
Will Open RAN development be held up by the current global supply chain issues around silicon?
Will Open RAN end up being used only in rural areas and private wireless networks?
Why do we need SD-RAN when we already have Open RAN?
