Live Q&A discussion

The After Show was broadcast live at the end of Day Two 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 the planned lifetime for Open RAN as an ecosystem? What plans are in place to ensure knowledge transfer as after deployment? Where are we in terms of massive MIMO radio unit availability for Open RAN deployments? What are the security aspects of Open RAN when considering its interoperability? Is Open RAN actually giving operators more choice or not? Are interfaces between elements fully standardised as per O-RAN Alliance architecture and specifications? Is RIC a competitor to RAN scheduling algorithms? For the massive rollout of Open RAN, how best to upgrade the transport network, and what is the additional TCO impact?
