SP360: SERVICE PROVIDER

Open vRAN Ecosystem – Enabling a Better Mobile Architecture

We’ve had a busy six months architecting and building solutions, executing operator demos and trials, helping to define open interfaces and management, building business models to compare costs of various solutions, partnering with the UK government to help address the digital divide with 5G, and much more. There’s more to come on many of those items. In this update we’ll focus primarily on our activities around this week’s MWC Americas show in Los Angeles.

Unleash the power of 5G

By enabling greater flexibility and capacity, 5G will mean that new service areas like network as a service and virtual reality can come into their own. And the internet of things (IoT) will continue to expand. From connected cars and healthcare to smart cities and smart homes, there are expected to be more than 3.3 billion mobile-connected IoT devices by 2021.

Telecom operators: Are you ready for 5G?

5G networking will create many opportunities for service providers in enhanced mobile broadband and fixed wireless access, but also in growth areas like IoT, NaaS, and virtual reality.
