Open RAN

3 challenges you might face with Open RAN deployment. The deployment and management of the radio access network (RAN) is the most expensive part of network. Today, new 5G radio access networks (RANs) are being developed to support a range of new features, including multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) antennas, large spectrum bandwidths and multi-band carrier aggregation. […]

5G

5G is being developed and rolled out at a pace not experienced with earlier communications standards, and it’s not difficult to see why. 5G promises ultra-reliable, ultra-low latency connectivity. It’ll also allow operators to unlock new revenue streams and drive profits from IoT applications. The ability to capitalize on 5G is essential. Operators will continue […]
