Panel Discussion

There are a number of potential benefits for network operators that deploy Open RAN-based systems but also a number of challenges, one of which is the added complexity of identifying, selecting, testing and managing a broader set of suppliers for a radio access network (RAN) architecture that will differ from the traditional, monolithic systems, which are carrier-grade and proven. How can operators overcome the challenges associated with multi-vendor systems and open interfaces? Do third-party systems integration partners hold the key for most telcos seeking to deploy Open RAN-based technologies?
