News analysis for Thursday 2 March

On today’s show, we hear from Orange Business Services CEO, Aliette Mousnier-Lompré, and the managing director of BT’s Division X, Marc Overton, on why they believe in the long-term potential of telco-enabled private networks for SMEs. Deutsche Telekom group CTO, Abdu Mudesir, drops by for a chat with Ray about his plans for Open RAN. Plus, we talk with China Mobile chief scientist, Chih-Lin I, and ETSI CTO, Adrian Scrase, to find out how exactly the O-RAN Alliance is working with standards development organisations (SDOs) like ETSI and 3GPP.

We also have our final round-up of product and partnership news from MWC in Barcelona, as well as the final show floor report from Ray and Yanitsa. Now that’s what I call a Slice of MWC.
