Although Open RAN presents new opportunities for operators, there are many different timelines and deployment models for the technology, which is still in its infancy. These differing timelines are due to a variety of factors – from how the networks are planned to operator business goals.
Mobile World Live together with Aspire Technology conducted an online survey of mobile network operators, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), hardware companies, software companies, system integrators and tower companies to understand the industry’s views on deploying Open RAN reference architecture and some of the challenges to migrating to this new technology.
This survey confirms the industry’s interest in Open RAN but also reveals that there are some concerns about the maturity of the technology and its readiness for deployment.
