Hear from O-RAN pioneers

Host Operator Partner - Deutsche Telekom

As a pioneer of the open RAN movement and founding member of the O-RAN Alliance, Deutsche Telekom advocates the open RAN approach to build more open, flexible and intelligent radio access networks. Open RAN is now a critical component of the company’s long-term network innovation strategy to introduce vendor diversity, speed up the rate of innovation and by focusing on software operations to achieve higher levels of automation.

Technology Partner - i14y Lab

The i14y Lab is an open lab for interoperability testing of disaggregated telco systems, such as Open RAN. The lab is operated by a consortium of strong academic and industry partners led by Deutsche Telekom and supported with funding from the German Ministry of Digital and Transport (BMDV). 

i14y Lab provides infrastructure for integration tests with the aim to certify market readiness and accelerate time to market for multi-vendor disaggregated telco solutions. By creating and providing a vendor independent environment, i14y Lab promotes the development of an innovative, open, and interoperable telco ecosystem.
