Open RAN – The Debate

2023-05-31 | 16:15 - 17:30


Session Description

Is there an over-reliance on single vendors for the expansion of telecommunications infrastructure? Should we be looking toward a more open and interoperable future; a future with Open RAN? RAN hardware and software is the biggest outlay in wireless network architecture in the short term, but will the long term rewards of more choice, flexibility and innovation outweigh the initial investments? Could a disaggregated network really work for Latin America? Join the debate as we ask what will it take to secure wide spread adoption and, is it even possible. How will system integration and security risks be mitigated? Have CAPEX and OPEX savings really been proven; and how it can benefit the telecom industries sustainability goals?
