The country is the first to roll out Open RAN sites in the North West region, using parallel wireless O-RAN software to deliver new 4G service to 30 locations in a more cost-effective way.

Due to the increasing demand for mobile broadband services, mobile operators face CAPEX and OPEX deployment challenges with bringing new coverage or capacity to their end users.

Open RAN is an industry approach to define and build 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G RAN solutions with open interfaces between components based on a general-purpose, vendor-neutral hardware and software-defined technology. Open RAN allows mobile operators to mix and match radio, software and server suppliers, reducing supplier diversity, flexibility in deployment, and TCO. Open rain capex is predicted to cost $ 40 billion And accounting for more than 50% of the total RAN by 2026.

Vodafone has been a major proponent of the open RAN driving industry innovation to reduce deployment costs and avoid vendor lock-in, recently requiring its vendors to support O-RAN partitioning options 7.2 to ensure interoperability it occurs.
