O2 trials OpenRAN to improve indoor 4G and 5G coverage O2

O2 says a successful trial of Open Radio Access Network (OpenRAN) technology on its network proves the technology’s ability to cost-effectively improve indoor 4G and 5G coverage.

The Radio Access Network (RAN) market has traditionally been dominated by a few major players who offer highly integrated cell sites comprising radio, hardware, and software. This approach has made it difficult for operators to mix and match innovations and has proved to be a significant barrier to entry for smaller vendors.
