Open RAN | 5G Magazine July 2022 Edition

Where are we in the Open RAN Journey? Is Open RAN still hype, or is it ready for large-scale deployment? Operationally, Rakuten Mobile has already succeeded in the accelerated rollout of 275,000 cells with the Open RAN solution. Recently, DISH announced an expansion of their Open RAN-based 5G network across 120 cities, covering 20 percent of the U.S. population. So how can their success be repeated in the brownfield deployments?

We had an in-depth conversation with Geoff Hollingworth, CMO of Rakuten Symphony, Deutsche Telekom’s Petr Ledl, and Vodafone’s Francisco Martín to understand their Open RAN journey, related business drivers, solution approaches, standards role, and challenges. O-RAN Alliance, Telecom Infra Project’s (TIP) OpenRAN project, ONF’s SD-RAN project, and emerging Open RAN-focused consortiums are continuing with their work to accelerate the adoption of Open RAN.

Besides Rakuten Mobile and DISH network, as of June 2022, there are 48 ongoing Open RAN limited deployments and trials, with plans to expand their Open RAN deployments in the next 2 to 5 years. A diversified ecosystem of vendors, faster time to market with innovative capabilities, and TCO savings are some of the benefits the Open RAN operators expect in the mid to long term.
