Nine Steps Telcos Can Follow to Deploy End-to-End Open RAN
This white paper details key steps operators must take to deploy an end-to-end Open RAN solution that ensures a smooth transition between old RAN systems and innovative new Open RAN solutions.

Mobile network operators face an increasingly demanding and competitive business environment, a reality confounded by the fact that technology is changing more rapidly than ever before.
Legacy, single-vendor network solutions are becoming antiquated as service providers find they can stand in the way of innovation and network modernization. To thrive in a 5G world, which is more dynamic and application-centric than previous generations of connectivity, it will be imperative for operators to implement future-proof, end-to-end open network solutions.
While this is true across all aspects of the network, it is particularly true of the radio access network (RAN) and, therefore, Open RAN -- a disaggregated and virtualized RAN on general-purpose hardware -- has emerged as a key piece of the 5G puzzle.
