AI means many things to many people. Under the radar however, AI is emerging as the change agent in the RAN marketplace. Through direct and indirect means, AI and ML technologies are injecting diversity into the RAN vendor landscape. AI is not new to RAN. What is new is the combination of AI and RAN-disaggregation initiatives such as Open RAN, SDN and NFV. Established leaders, companies with telecom pedigree, consulting majors and startups are some of the notable stakeholders looking to leverage AI in the RAN. As a consequence, there is a very real probability that cellular operators will have real choices in their RAN design and deployment endeavors.
