Panel Discussion

The RAN intelligent controller (RIC) caused much excitement during the creation of Open RAN. But, after various trails and ongoing developments, the RIC has not yet produced the dynamic ecosystem many hoped it would. What is the current status and viability of the RIC? What opportunities and challenges are we seeing from vendors, telcos and developers? Do we actually need a discrete RIC and, if so, how do we accelerate its development and adoption?
