Scaling and Optimizing Open RAN Networks

The Open RAN landscape has matured significantly, reaching a pivotal stage where Tier 1 Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are poised for large-scale deployment.

  • Key industry players have endorsed Open RAN
  • Technology has evolved to enable a diverse ecosystem
  • Open RAN empowers innovation and faster time-to-market
  • Focus shifts to scalable deployments and reducing cost

As the industry achieves performance parity with legacy solutions, attention turns to energy efficiency, dynamic workload management, and the ability to adapt to changing network traffic loads. Discover how new infrastructure solutions enable operators to streamline Open RAN deployments with increased efficiency, scalability, and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
