Vodafone names vendors tapped for Britain's first wide-scale OpenRAN build: NEC, Dell, and Samsung


An open solution is the only solution.

It's too early yet to say how OpenRAN will turn out, but some sort of open solution is what has to be the answer to the problem, not just handing the market to a duopoly of Nokia and Erickson.

What is needed is a telecommunications equivalent of what Linux has done for the IT market. It provides a platform on which companies can provide services while minimizing vendor lock-in.

This is just a suggestion, but some sort of deep-dive into what this stuff is, how it works, and what it means would probably provide fodder for a continuing series of articles.
