The definitive event shaping the future of Open RAN
8:30am - 4:00pm Eastern US Time
Brought to you by
After the hugely successful first edition last year, we're excited to announce that the Open RAN Forum, the definitive event shaping the future of Open RAN will return this September!
JoinRCR Wireless News and leading industry experts virtually at the go-to event for the open RAN community - from carriers and policy leaders to hardware and software vendors.
In 2021 we'll take stock of where open RAN is today, where it's proponents want it to go moving forward, how critics are thinking about technology, and what open RAN means for operators who are continually pinched by stagnating ARPU.

KEY THEMES FOR 2021
How do we create the roadmap for open RAN deployments in urban areas and large scale commercial deployments?
Security, interoperability standards and design specifications
We will examine end-to-end security solutions, and the need for robust interoperability specifications and testing
The open RAN ecosystem in focus
Gathering leading hardware and software providers, right down to the silicon level, find out about the latest technology developments in opening up the RAN and how the supply chain is evolving
We will debate the true costs of open RAN, and analyze different deployment models taking into consideration both CAPEX and OPEX
Closing the performance gap
Updates from operators, industry bodies, and academia on test beds and early learnings from open RAN deployments
Continuous integration and deployment
We examine the intricacies of integrating software in a multi-vendor environment, as well as seeking to find out to how industry can ensure parity of performance, strategies to streamline end-to-end IT and business processes, and optimize life cycle management
2021 Carrier Speakers
