You may be asking yourself, what will the broadcasting industry look like a year from now or five years into the future? How do I successfully transition my broadcast technology to keep pace? Here are five important factors to consider when reshaping your broadcasting technology in this time of rapid change. After all, the decisions made now will determine the technical environment we live with for years to come. If you’re considering broadcast technology transition, begin by asking the question, how should this workflow exist in the future? Does it make sense to keep doing what we do with no changes to operational assumptions? How long do we expect the best practices implemented today to remain best practices?

FUTURE-PROOFING 5G ARCHITECTURE WITH OPEN-RAN

Article | May 19, 2021

The RAN (Radio Access Network) architecture for mobile networks includes a remote radio unit (RRU) located at the top of a cell tower, which communicates with a baseband unit (BBU) at the base of the tower. The hardware and communication interfaces are owned by a specific vendor, and its software-driven functionality is tightly coupled within the hardware. Traditionally, this has worked well for mobile network operators (MNOs). However, there are several drawbacks to consider – for instance, upgrading or changing the wireless network demands physical hardware replacements throughout the network, which is cost-inefficient, labor-intensive, and time-consuming. Furthermore, the equipment and interfaces that connect the hardware are owned by the vendors that originally supplied them, which locks MNOs into existing relationships with them.
