Small Cell Open RAN: A catalyst for new 5G business models is the latest paper from Small Cell Forum (SCF).

Open RAN is an important step toward the democratisation of radio access networks (RANs). SCF239 aims to provide a crisp and accessible overview of Small Cell Open RAN – what it is and what it’s not, along with a short overview of SCF activities in this space. It provides important market research data, shedding light on how various Open RAN solutions are addressing diverse usage, deployment and operational scenarios. The document finishes with case studies of operational deployments, tests and trials by SCF members, including Picocom.

Dr Doug Pulley, Chief Solutions Architect, Picocom reflects on architecture as another dimension of diversity in the RAN, and ORANIC the PC802-based Open RAN PHY and NIC board that contributes to the diversity of RAN architectures is a featured product.
