The evolution to Open RAN is one of the most important trends in the telecommunications industry today. Despite the promise of operators being able to mix network elements from different vendors, there are challenges that need to be resolved ahead of large-scale adoption.

In this webinar, industry experts from Dell and VIAVI Solutions will discuss the main challenges and barriers operators face when evaluating the total cost of ownership (TCO) for Open RAN deployments and how those challenges can be addressed or mitigated. Panelists will also discuss their key findings regarding TCO for Open RAN compared to legacy RAN environments, as well as the work the two companies are undertaking to improve the understanding and optimization of those TCO considerations.
