Will AT&T choose a disaggregated cloud platform for Open RAN?
In this podcast, Caroline Chappell, expert in cloud-native technologies, discusses a key test for AT&T’s open network credentials. The question is whether AT&T will pair its cloud platform with RAN functions from Ericsson or opt for a third-party telecoms cloud platform. This decision will shape the future capability to run RAN functions from various vendors in the future.
This podcast discusses
- why a horizontal cloud platform is necessary for Open RAN
- why high-capacity network operators (brownfield operators) need to take steps towards adopting Open RAN while incorporating openness into the process
- who the contenders are in the horizontal cloud platform space for AT&T’s Open RAN deployment and a discussion determining the frontrunners in securing the contract.
