Open RAN deployments are advancing at pace globally, but there continues to be some market uncertainty about the level of that advance.
This webinar will do away with that uncertainty. It will take a real-world look at actual Open RAN deployments, state where commercial successes are being achieved, and explain the purpose of live deployments.
The webinar will reveal up to date information on:
• Open RAN deployment numbers
• Who is deploying and where
• The structure and make-up of those deployments
• Operator successes with Open RAN
• Specific solutions that are bringing commercial benefits to deployers and operators.
