Vodafone tests multi-vendor OpenRAN technology that could increase 5G capacity

Vodafone successfully completed the industry’s first trial of implementing multi-vendor RAN intelligent controllers (RICs) – a technology that could accelerate the development of the OpenRAN ecosystem and result in higher quality 5G networks for consumers and businesses.

OpenRAN is a vendor-independent approach with standardized designs that enable various companies to deliver hardware and software. Operators benefit from increased innovation from a wider range of suppliers, reduced costs and greater flexibility, as the threat of supplier blockage is reduced.
