The Open RAN ecosystem gathers steam

The future of the RAN is open

Do you still have questions on Open RAN? You are not alone. In this report on the Open RAN ecosystem, we tried to address many of the outstanding questions, with the help of eleven vendors and operators:

  • Is adoption of Open RAN too slow?  
  • Where will Open RAN be deployed first?  
  • How many vendors in the RAN?  
  • Will Open RAN ever be plug-and-play?  
  • Is there such a thing as a single-vendor Open RAN?
  • Is COTS hardware a requirement of Open RAN?  
  • By when will Open RAN be massively deployed?  
  • Will Open RAN become the default RAN architecture?  
  • Will Open RAN reduce the TCO?  
  • Can Open RAN have feature parity with single-vendor vertically-integrated RAN?  
  • Is RIC necessary to manage the RAN?  
  • Is Open RAN sustainable?  
  • Is Open RAN more or less secure than traditional RAN?  
  • Should the 6G RAN be open?  
  • Do private networks benefit from Open RAN?  
  • What is the biggest challenge to Open RAN?  
  • What is the greatest benefit of Open RAN?
