Special Report: Open RAN

txtOpen RAN

For years, operators have complained that ‘vendor lock-in’ constitutes an enforced removal of free competition that drives up prices – a particular factor in emerging markets, where service providers can typically expect high deployment costs on top of low ARPU. Operators argue that they should be free to select their network equipment on an a la carte basis – but how practicable is this, and would it genuinely save them significant amounts?

While there are many contrasting opinions on the viability of Open RAN, there is a groundswell of support for the technology among operators in low-income markets who are keen to maximise their profitability. But does Open RAN really offer them the freedom to deploy their networks as they see fit, or does it create more problems than it solves? Our report will offer opinions from all schools of thought from industry analysts and stakeholders. 

The report will aim to answer questions including: 

What are the key technical and operational challenges Open RAN needs to overcome to dramatically increase uptake in emerging markets?

Do the cost benefits of Open RAN outweigh the challenges presented by the technology – particularly in emerging markets?

How will greater disaggregation of Radio Access Networks impact the industry – and operator attitudes towards their suppliers – going forward?
