Bringing Open RAN to maturity and delivering on the promise of disaggregated networks
The Event is Over - See You in 2024
Brought to you by
In the fifth edition of this event, we discussed the progress of Open RAN and the crucial role of the RIC. We examined the continually evolving ecosystem of players from hardware and software players, right down to the silicon level. We also discussed the latest on commercial deployments, security, and the continuing debate regarding interoperability and parity of performance.
This year's forum is now over. You can watch all of the sessions on-demand by getting your free pass.
