The entire telecom industry is going through a dramatic change that can be only compared to the change that Data Centers went through in the 2000s; all driven by Moore’s law. This is driving the need to move from costly, proprietary solutions to COTS and Open-based ones, and create a broader vendor supply chain. Vodafone recently noted that “the global supply of telecom network equipment has become concentrated in a small handful of companies over the past few years. More choice of suppliers will safeguard the delivery of services to all mobile customers, increase flexibility and innovation and, crucially, can help address some of the cost challenges that are holding back the delivery of internet services globally. In this webinar, Parallel Wireless speakers will discuss how the cloud-native and software-based Parallel Wireless OpenRAN approach across ALL G significantly improves network economics by converging ‘ALL G’, including 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, on to one unified software platform that is easy to manage. We will showcase how this eliminates the need for operators to maintain siloed legacy networks dedicated to just one G service resulting in up to 60% OPEX cost reduction to maintain networks. This approach allows MNOs to modernize legacy networks for cost reduction and is essential to reduce the complexity and integration expense of rolling out multi-vendor 5G systems. We will go in more detailed in different types of Intel-based OpenRAN (integrated and split) and supported coverage and capacity use cases. We will close the session off with some real-life deployments of OpenRAN by Parallel Wireless across the globe from Vodafone, Telefonica, MTN, Etisalat, Zain and CCA members in the US.
