The market for radio access network (RAN) equipment is worth at least $30 billion year – and significantly more if passives, civil works and transport are included – with spending concentrated on a handful of large system vendors. Open RAN promises to disrupt this market by making it faster to introduce radio innovation into live networks and faster to create RAN solutions optimized for different use cases and markets. This webinar will provide a read-out of an exclusive new Heavy Reading survey focused on operator attitudes towards Open RAN. With input from more than 100 respondents working at communications service providers, the survey addresses the key topics that define Open RAN, including system integration, disaggregation, virtualization, transport, edge architecture and business drivers. The session will be led by Principal Analyst Gabriel Brown, with expert guest speakers from Cisco, Intel, Nokia and Radisys. Join us to discuss what is fast becoming one of the most important topics on the mobile networking!
