This webinar explores the global mobile infrastructure supply chain and how geopolitics and the pandemic have restricted its global nature. Current market activities indicate that there may a risk that the implementation of the global 3GPP standards will be fragmented, separating world regions into specific vendors or implementation types. OpenRAN is one approach that the Western world is currently using as a driver to implement supply chain diversity and more choice in terms of vendors.

In this webinar, attendees will:

  • Learn how geopolitics and COVID-19 are affecting the telcosupply chain
  • Understand how OpenRAN is being introduced in the market and what are its key challenges
  • See how a fragmented supply chain will likely harm telco network developments, particularly 5G and edge computing
