In advance of the Layer123 Europe Congress, leading practitioners championing TIP’s Open RAN initiative and those united within the O-RAN Alliance came together to discuss all things RAN.
In the current economic downturn, an affordable and customisable 5G alternative is not only desirable but integral to the long-term aspirations not just in developing countries but also in many parts of North America and Europe.

Session titles also included: The journey towards disaggregated networking, OpenRAN: The next evolution for network operators, Standards projects for OpenRAN: ONF's Technical Contributions to ORAN, A market analysts' insights for 2021 and beyond.
