Mainstage Day 1: Welcome Address from TIP's Chairman

The Auditorium

A lot has happened in the industry and within TIP since Fyuz23. Open RAN has become the
accepted architecture for future RAN development, and leading operators have announced
agreements with vendors and initiated procurement processes for large scale deployments.
Deployment of solutions based on work done in TIP’s OOPT and OpenLAN Project Groups is
accelerating, and new project groups have been established for exploring AI for TelCos, and for
developing new operational models for Neutral Hosts and shared infrastructure.

TIP’s chairman will reflect on the progress in the industry and how TIP is enabling acceleration
of development and deployment, for the benefit of the community as a whole.

Ericsson Open RAN

Liffey Hall 1

Panel 1: Predicting the exact evolution of Open RAN by 2025 is challenging, as the technology landscape and market dynamics are subject to various factors. However, based on current trends and industry developments, several potential directions for the evolution of Open RAN by 2025 can be considered, and this will of course vary between regions in terms of underlying factors, such as network architecture, competition, business needs, regulator/government, etc.

Panel 2: Open RAN is driving innovation in the telecommunications industry by promoting vendor interoperability and flexibility. The introduction of rApps fosters the development of new functionalities, and by that creating a dynamic network environment. Additionally, Service Management and Orchestration (SMO) enables efficient deployment and operation of network functions and services across multiple vendors and domains, ensuring the flexibility and interoperability of Open RAN networks. These advancements are reshaping telecommunications infrastructure and paving the way for a more agile and competitive industry.
