Which Open RAN is best for you? You are ready to deploy Open RAN. What’s the best topology to use? We developed a TCO model to explore how transport costs are a crucial to decide what is the most cost-efficient topology. Read this paper to find out the results of our analysis on how the tradeoffs of transport versus location can help operators maximize the return on their Open RAN investments.

Visibility is in, borders are out Digital transformation requires more than software-based, virtualized networks to be successful. Operators need full, end-to-end, real-time visibility into their networks – across applications, vendors, locations and, eventually, network slices.
Wi-Fi and 5G redefine wireless Wi-Fi 6 and 5G redefine our wireless experience and create a pervasive connection fabric for users and IoT applications. Read more in this white paper by Monica Paolini, Senza Fili, sponsored by Intel.
Smart networks need smart data Digital transformation opens up networks to offer new services, support new use cases, and increase network efficiency. But to do so, operators need to collect, distill and use vast amounts of data to optimize and run their networks. Monica Paolini, Senza Fili, talked with Dr. Vikram Saksena, Chief Solutions Architect, Office of the CTO at NETSCOUT, about how smart data can make networks smarter.
A spectrum of opportunity with 5G The technology, standards and ecosystem for 5G are getting to the finish line. But do we need 5G? And do we need it now? And, just as important, can we afford it? A conversation with Rob Topol, Intel
