Open Mobile Networks (Open RAN)
The Open Future of Radio Access Networks
Open and virtualised RAN refers to a disaggregated approach of deploying virtualised mobile networks by using open and interoperable protocols and interfaces, implemented over a common commercial-off-the-shelf hardware (COTS) in a multi-vendor software environment, allowing an increased flexibility over traditional RAN architectures, aiming to provide OPEX and CAPEX savings while fostering innovation.
Nowadays, Mobile Networks are evolving towards a more intelligent, virtualized, open and totally interoperable architecture.
