RAN components in telecom infrastructure transform into software-based components with Open RAN. Disaggregated RAN functionality with open interfaces brings innovation and encourages competition. Cloud native principles come into the picture to further bring agility to Open RAN software development. With this approach, development in Open RAN can be aligned with distributed cloud and central orchestration and automation of Open RAN components.
In this eBrief, you will get an overview about the evolution from Traditional RAN to Open RAN, driving innovation for 5G telecom network, application of cloud native approach for agility in software delivery to boost RAN innovation, and the key factors bringing cloud native to Open RAN.
