The move to Open vRAN represents the latest step in the transformation of networks that has been happening for decades, migrating from primarily voice networks to today’s data-only networks.
To support this shift, and the diverse services and applications that will run on 4G and 5G networks, networks have to be fundamentally adaptable. This will require the wireless network to be capable of understanding diverse traffic types and services – such as Internet of Things (IoT) , enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Vehicle-to-everything (V2x), Ultra-reliable low-latency communication (UrLLC), and Virtual Reality – that they are supporting.
