Mavenir and the March of Open RAN

US-headquartered Mavenir is leading an ecosystem at the heart of Open RAN and the wider drive towards RAN disaggregation – with the aim of helping vendors as well as operators. “Open RAN is more than just technology – it’s about changing the supply chain, creating organisational strengths to support it, and bringing the pieces together into a multivendor environment to build the RAN networks of the future,” John Baker, SVP of Business Development at Mavenir, told The Network. “We’re trying to level the playing field so new vendors can get in there and compete, and at the same time allowing operators to take negotiating power into their own hands. This means they can control the profitability, no longer needing to pay for margin stacking and hidden services – and ultimately, Open RAN allows all operators to compete on a feature by feature basis.”
