As operators expand radio networks with upgrades and new buildouts, open architectures offer clear benefits regarding flexibility and agility. Avoiding vendor lock-in and the ability to build best-of-breed capabilities are very valuable, but many overlook a key benefit that comes along with standardised interfaces and greater visibility – improved security.

Two important factors can drive improved security: improved modularity and reduced interdependencies. With open  interfaces available deeper within radio access network (RAN) infrastructure, there are options for isolating controls, greater observability, and independently generated operational telemetry. Those interfaces provide modularity, which can allow more granular security attestation.

Open architectures offer manifold benefits that are just starting to be realised. Download this whitepaper to find out more.
