"Tier-1 communications service providers in developed markets are leading the way for disaggregated deployment models; existing models continue to be used in developing markets."


The number of operator deployments of cloud-based 5G core and vRAN/Open RAN continued to increase in 1H 2023. Since 2020, there has been a notable shift away from vertically integrated stacks. However, in 2023, there was a deceleration in the adoption of disaggregated models. This report analyses and quantifies this trend and highlights key information from Analysys Mason's 5G network cloud deployment tracker.

Information included in this report

  • Breakdown and analysis of the use of the four 5G core and vRAN/Open deployment models: vertically integrated stacks, DIY private clouds, of public cloud provider (PCP) cloud platforms and operator-packaged platforms
  • Insights about the key deals for each deployment model
  • Analysis of the leading vendors for each deployment model
