The disaggregated, cloud-native architecture of Open RAN is fueling innovations for RAN intelligence, automation and optimization at a far more accelerated pace compared to traditional closed architectures. Deployment of intelligence, automation and optimization solutions has become mandatory to both greenfield and brownfield mobile operators to address key challenges:
- Efficiently managing the growing complexity of 4G/5G networks
- Meet the coverage, capacity, and latency requirements of 5G networks
- Manage the cost, performance and agility with the large number of cells required for 5G networks.
- Ensure network scalability through automation and performance optimization technologies.
