Analyst Briefings

Want to learn whilst networking with likeminded attendees? The informal and interactive Lunch Break Briefings are he perfect way to meet “birds of a feather”, whilst learning from a leading expect in the edge sector.

In this briefing, Roy Chua, Founder & Principal Analysyt at AvidThink, will discuss the topic subject of OpenRAN and the role edge computing will play. “Bring” your lunch and join the discussion !

The virtualization, disaggregation and opening up of the radio access network (RAN) has become a new hot topic. From being identified as the leading workload for the telco edge, to playing a starring role in a politically-tinged landscape around the role of US companies in the 5G ecosystem, the open RAN holds promise for innovation but could turn into a quagmire for eager participants. This session will be a forum for discussions around the open RAN topic, including the role of the O-RAN Alliance, TIP OpenRAN, OpenRAN Policy Coalition, ONF’s SD-RAN, as well as the promises and perils of the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) and xApps, and other contrbutions under the umbrella of open RAN.
