Panel Discussion

Initial Open RAN rollouts were focused on greenfield sites, but the major opportunity lies with its use in existing brownfield sites. How are telcos approaching their deployment strategies in terms of geographies and network topologies? And what trends are we starting to see in the vendor mix for Open RAN deployments - are the same disrupter companies that kick-started Open RAN now receiving commercial contracts or are they losing out to incumbents? And are multivendor scenarios proving a realistic alternative to single lead-vendor relationships?
