RAN is representing 70% of the network CAPEX of Communication Service Providers (CSPs). As a result, the RAN architecture has strongly evolved to maximize the flexibility of deployments while reducing the network access TCO (CAPEX + OPEX) drastically for operators.
This webinar will present and analyze the main vRAN/O-RAN architectures. Our speakers Arnab Das and Shamik Mishra will analyze the deployment challenges related to multi vendor (Disaggregated RAN) interoperability and testing. Finally, they will explore the new network management requirements and the different associated Smart RAN solutions based on AI/ML and new xApps/RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC).

- Current vRAN/O-RAN initiatives, solutions and architecture
- Experiences from multivendor deployments
- Assessment of potential benefits of AI/ML applications for Smart RAN management
