Open Radio Access Networks (RANs) are competitive and deployable at scale. Open interfaces in combination with commercial off-the-shelf hardware, and cloud-native software, create the conditions for long-term innovation in the RAN and across the mobile network ecosystem.

Open RAN Evolution Digital Symposium Day 2 Session 1: Cloud Native Open RAN 

November 16, 2023, 11:00 a.m. ET

Open RAN is an opportunity to deploy and operate mobile networks on cloud infrastructure. This brings efficiency, fast development cycles, and new operating models to the RAN, and in turn, can drive innovation and agility in end user services. This session discusses how operators can deploy open RAN on cloud infrastructure platforms to better achieve advanced radio performance, programmability, and automated operations.

Among the topics this session will address:

  • Status of cloud native CU and DU software

  • Edge cloud infrastructure, O-Cloud specifications, and high-performance RAN silicon

  • Cloud operating models and RAN automation

  • Opportunities for ML in cloud native RAN

  • Energy efficiency in cloud RAN

Moderator: Gabriel Brown, Senior Principal Analyst, Mobile Networks & 5G, Heavy
