"CSPs are still trying to figure out their telco cloud strategies, resulting in a slow 2H 2023 for 5G cloud-based cores and vRAN/Open RAN commercial deployments."


The number of communications service provider (CSP) commercial deployments of cloud-based 5G core and vRAN/Open RAN grew by 8% in 2H 2023 (14 new deals). 2023 was a year of cloud and 5G standalone strategy formulation and finalisation for CSPs potentially planning to move away from vertically integrated stacks in 2024 and beyond.
