Event Overview

5G and edge computing allow communication service providers (CSPs) to operate flexible, scalable, and cost-effective networks. CSPs are adopting open networking / open RAN to become more competitive and sustainable in the long term. It enables flexible network infrastructure to drive innovation, accelerate digitization, and rationalize cost of operations.

Open networking is a paradigm shift in the way CSPs build and manage networks by leveraging software defined networks, open interfaces, disaggregation, and automation. Several CSPs are in various stages of trial and deployment of fully programmable networks to deliver Network-as-a-Service and deliver a range of digital services while ensuring low total cost of operations. Join the Open Networks webinar hosted by Infosys to gain practical insights from thought leaders and practitioners who will share their learning from trials and deployments in collaboration with ecosystem partners.


Key Takeaways:

  • The promise, strategy, and roadmap of the adoption of Open Network Technologies.
  • Learnings from the ongoing trials in the Field of Open Networking Technologies like ORAN, MEC and the path to Monetization.
  • Success factors to drive the vision of Open Networks from concept to reality
