What is the future of OpenRAN?

Hello dears,

I’ve seen a rise in discussion (and deplyments) of OpenRAN recently.

What are your thoughts bout it?

  • Operators will “shift” from traditional vendors (Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, ZTE…) to OpenRAN vendors;
  • Traditional vendors will buy (acquire) OpenRAN Vendors;
  • Only 5G Networks will move to OpenRAN (LTE and other legacy networks will remain in traditional model);
  • Google, MS and Facebook will dominate it all;
  • OpenRAN will be a pure hype;
  • Other future?
