The radio unit (RU) plays a critical role in the Open RAN ecosystem at the access edge of the network, where the RAN ceases to be virtual and becomes physical, as Bill McKenney in the Wireless Communications business unit at Analog Devices points out.
In this conversation with Bill, we discuss how the RU is evolving to fit into Open RAN deployments and the role of RU vendors in the Open RAN ecosystem. And it is a two-way road: Open RAN also creates innovation opportunities for the RU that expand the 5G RU capabilities.
