Open RAN offers a huge opportunity, but to unlock the true value we must streamline the implementation of new suppliers and a disruptive technology. The good news is that a solution is in sight. The RAN intelligent controller (RIC) is the key to enabling true openness, innovation and differentiation.

Based on the core principle of openness, the RIC is a platform that drives application innovations using technology convergence and a new developer ecosystem.
