News analysis for Wednesday 1 March

Join TelecomTV’s Guy Daniels, Ray Le Maistre and Yanitsa Boyadzhieva for our third dedicated news show of the week, when we bring you the most important breaking news and discuss the latest industry announcements.

On today’s show, we hear from O-RAN Alliance chairman Alex Jinsung Choi on the key focus areas for the year ahead, as well as BT’s new chief networks officer, Greg McCall, on his plans for Open RAN. We also learn about progress on 5G standalone from Michaël Trabbia, chief technology and innovation officer at Orange, and find out when operators can expect to realise the full benefits of 5G.

And if that wasn’t enough for you, we ask Telstra what operators can do to become more sustainable. We even look ahead to (dare we say it) 6G with NGMN board member Mike Irizarry, who reassures us that 5G won’t be abandoned in favour of the next big thing.

Oh, and did we mention that Ray and Yanitsa bring us another slice of the day’s top news from MWC and beyond?
