Open RAN: Global MNO coalition to progress certification maturity for multivendor integration
2023 was an eventful year for the global adoption of Open RAN. As solutions mature, a key industry target is to enable of multi-vendor open RAN integration by certification and badging. A global coalition of tier-1 operators picks up the challenge to jointly define improved certification frameworks that will create value for the global operator community, building on and advancing the initial frameworks set up by O-RAN Alliance and Telecom Infra Project (TIP). The i14y Lab expands on that with a deep-dive into the badging and certification at the lab, sharing its learnings and improvements made to test plans according to operators’ deployment needs.
