This whitepaper explores the critical role that the RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) plays in transforming the network and empowering operators to create and monetise distinctive O-RAN service propositions.

Building intelligent control into the RAN provides the means to simplify and manage the complexity of integrating multiple O-RAN technology providers into the network and avoid vendor lock-in.

This enables operators to benefit from the innovation provided by a broader range of specialist O-RAN vendors, avoiding the risk that openness creates disorder in their service provision.

As this paper proposes, it’s the RIC that can unlock the true value of the “open” proposition of O-RAN.
