Open RAN Radio Market: Product Availability Study

Apr 29, 2021 | Author : Gareth Owen


Radio availability is one of the main Achilles heels of the open RAN story. This PPT presentation provides an overview of a study recently undertaken recently by Counterpoint Research to determine the availability of open RAN radios today. The study includes radios deployed or available today as well as those expected to become available during the next 12 months. Radios are segmented by application: outdoor (macro/small cell) and indoors; by type (single/dual/tri-band and MIMO/mMIMO) and by frequency band.
