Update on Project Groups
The OpenRAN project group is investigating how telcos can migrate to a software-centric, general purpose processor hardware Radio Access Network. Back in June 2018, Vodafone and Telefónica announced RFIs to investigate and explore the existing market opportunities for RAN technologies built to be software-centric on commoditised hardware. Since then, the two CSPs have contributed the joint specification to the OpenRAN Project Group and selected vendors to produce interoperable RAN solutions. The next stage involves deployments in the field, with trials of OpenRAN platforms with Facebook alongside Vodafone in Turkey and Telefónica in Latin America.
