Open RAN: Crossing the Threshold From Concept to Certainty

Service providers are looking to Open RAN — a virtualized RAN on general-purpose hardware — to replace legacy, single-vendor RAN solutions with a stable, scalable and 5G ready architecture.

But as the RAN becomes increasingly software driven and built with a variety of vendors to increase agility and foster innovation, deploying this transformative technology becomes more complex and time consuming.


A prevailing misunderstanding is that ORAN technology is too immature to justify deployments now. We’ve found reality is far different.
