4G, 5G Open RAN technology trials to launch this year

Article | March 21, 2020

Trials of 4G and 5G Open RAN will commence in the UK, Germany, Spain and Brazil this year after Telefónica confirmed a “strategic ecosystem collaboration” with Altiostar, Gigatera Communications, Intel, Supermicro and Xilinx, Inc. Telefónica said the partnership will examine design and developments, integration efforts, operational procedures and testing activities required to deliver Open RAN across its global footprint. This work will specifically include development, optimisation, testing and industrialisation of Open RAN technologies. In a statement, the firm said: “Open RAN represents a paradigm change in network technology where radio baseband hardware is based on standard servers, interfaces between network equipment are open and standardized by the O-RAN Alliance, and the baseband software runs in the Telco Cloud by adopting the Automation and Zero-Touch capabilities that the NFV/SDN paradigm can bring.”
