Virtualized RAN Challenges Debunked

January 17, 2020

Mobile network operators (MNOs) are now considering ways to take advantage of the benefits that Virtualized RAN (vRAN) can deliver. vRAN gives MNOs greater network availability and better deployment flexibility using pooled, centralized resources that are operating on standardized commercially available hardware.
