Telecom operators need to reduce development time and while implementing new solutions to increase the performance and reliability of 5G networks in a cost-effective manner. Operators have already implemented open systems in their network cores and virtualizing functions, and now they want to achieve the same benefits with RANs including Radio Units (RUs). The Open RU (O-RU) roadmap covers both traditional macro radios and Massive MIMO and addresses key challenges including overall design cost reduction and accelerated time-to-market without sacrificing system-level power and performance.
A 30-minute panel discussion about O-RU developments titled “How is the O-RU reference architecture driving 5G Radio Development?” in the Intel® Network & Edge Panel Series discusses the key digital, analog, RF technology, and business considerations that will enable radio ODMs, CMs, and System Integrators to offer flexible and scalable end-to-end RAN solutions.
Panel participants include:
- Tero Kola, VP, System Product Management, Mobile Networks Business Group, Nokia
- Francisco (Paco) Martin, Group Head of OPEN RAN, Vodafone
- Rajesh Srinivasa, SVP and GM, Radio Business Unit, Mavenir
- Mike Fitton, VP, Intel Programmable Solutions Network Business Division, Intel Corporation
- Nitin Sharma, GM, Wireless Communications, Analog Devices, Inc (ADI)
- Moderator: Guy Daniels, Director of Content, TelecomTV
