Open interfaces give operators the flexibility to choose hardware and software vendors in Open RAN deployments. Open RAN starts with open interfaces, but it is more than that. It gives operators an unprecedented flexibility in deciding how to build their networks.
When it comes to silicon, operators and equipment vendors can choose between off-the-shelf or optimized chipsets. What are the tradeoffs between the two options?
I talked to Peter Claydon, President at Picocom about their approach to develop optimized Open RAN chipsets specifically designed for small cells. This is a transcript of our conversation.
