While much of the network has already benefited from a wave of disaggregation and virtualization in support of 4G/LTE, the RAN remains the last piece of the network to be disaggregated. This blog post provides the background that has led to the industry's push for the adoption of an open, disaggregated RAN.
CIOs, CISOs, architects and operators designing for 5G needs should consider five key elements: scalability, performance coupled with security, secure SD-WAN, segmentation and VNF/PNF.
Indeed, all stakeholders must continue to work together to create flexible models for spectrum management, including standards, incentives and enforcement mechanisms that promote efficient and effective spectrum use. In addition, they must include flexible-use spectrum allocations or licenses, while accounting for critical safety and security concerns.
