Episode # 2 – Deciphering the Open RAN Ecosystem
A first step in this educational journey about Open RAN was to understand the technology, its challenges, and its benefits, among other issues. Once this issue was defined in the first episode of the series, it is time to understand one of the key aspects for operators to have confidence that this new architecture is not a passing fad but the architecture of the future of their mobile networks. The ecosystem is a fundamental factor for operators to start trusting Open RAN and, therefore, deciphering what situation it is in is essential. It is about creating a dynamic and secure Open RAN ecosystem that allows operators to choose the best providers for each piece of the puzzle that will form their future RAN.
And this is the purpose of this episode, to show that a relatively mature Open RAN ecosystem already exists and that it continues to expand as more players understand that operators need a new RAN implementation model that is more efficient and allows the generation of new business. This second episode of the series will help operators to figure out exactly the current state of the Open RAN ecosystem.
