Live Q&A discussion


The After Show was broadcast live at the end of Day One of the Open RAN Summit. TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels and Ray Le Maistre were joined by industry guest panellists for this question and answer session. Among the questions raised by our audience were: What is Open RAN's most important objective and have we achieved it yet? What is the most challenging issue encountered in the deployment of Open RAN today? What is the TCO comparison of an Open RAN system vs a similar stack from established vendors? What is Vodafone’s timeline for large scale commercial Open RAN deployment? What considerations, if any, are being made for future 6G compatibility with Open RAN architectures? Who will take the end-to-end responsibility for integration at the installation phase and in the long-run?
