Episode five of The Open RAN Show will air at 12pm (UK time) on Friday 19 May

Episode five of The Open RAN Show takes a look at one of the most important and challenging areas of open, multivendor radio access network deployments – systems integration. The role of systems integrators (SIs), and the appropriate model for engagement, has long been a major topic of discussion in Open RAN circles, but there are still many views about how the relationship between the network operator, SI and vendor is best approached and the role that network blueprints might play in planning and building multi-vendor architectures. This show will include insights from multiple companies and industry organisations that have domain expertise and, as always, will bring you the latest Open RAN sector news headlines.
