Open Architectures

Day 2 Topic

Challenges and opportunities of open networks

Open Architectures

A recent GSMA Intelligence survey found that 77% of operator respondents are likely to leverage 5G to introduce open networking technologies (including open RAN).

This Unwrapped daily focus will examine the challenges (eg integration issues/security/cultural challenges) and opportunities involved in building a single, software-based automated network that runs on any cloud – public or private, centralised or distributed.

Open Architectures

Let’s unwrap the topic:

  • Review progress in the open RAN market
  • Determine whether the claimed capex savings touted by an open RAN strategy are realistic
  • What does a commitment to ‘open’ mean for operators?
  • Use of open source software and broadly open IT technologies.

When does this topic feature in Unwrapped?

Open Architecture will be our Day 2 topic of Next-Generation Networks.

Tuesday 13 September. Watch the Open Architecture keynote and take part in the individual webinars.
