Open RAN North America: December 7-8, NYC

The Open RAN Policy Coalition is excited to be in New York City for Open RAN North America on December 7-8. The conference will include attendees from across the RAN ecosystem, including service providers, enterprises, the public sector, vendors, industry associations and academia.

On December 8 at 2:30 p.m. our Coalition will host a policy workshop on “Overcoming Barriers to 5G Deployment through R&D, Test Beds and Interoperability”. This session will feature a panel discussion moderated by Executive Director Diane Rinaldo, that will address questions such as:

  • What strategies can governments and the private sector undertake to promote supply chain security while avoiding mandates and maintaining technology neutrality?
  • How can smart policies encourage the continued adoption of open and interoperable solutions in the RAN and emergence of diverse vendors in the telecoms ecosystem?
  • What are the research needs to accelerate Open RAN development, and what does the current test labs landscape look like?
  • How can we coordinate across governments and regions to leverage test beds and R&D resources and knowledge?

Confirmed panelists include Chris Boyer, Vice President of Global Security and Technology Policy at AT&T; Ganesh Shenbagaraman, Head of Integrated Products And Ecosystems at Radisys; and Mari Silbey, Senior Director of Partnerships and Outreach at US Ignite.
