Open RAN: Crossing the Threshold From Concept to Certainty
As the RAN becomes increasingly software driven and built with a variety of vendors, deployment becomes more complex and time consuming. This report identifies key barriers to adoption and how to capture the real opportunities ORAN presents today.
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.
WWT and Intel have commissioned research with Heavy Reading, the distinguished telecoms research house, that reveal insights from UK service providers and demonstrates how the key barriers to adoption can be cleared to capture the real opportunities ORAN presents today.
