T-Mobile customers take note: T-Mobile’s Ray summons ‘patience’ when it comes to open RAN

From FierceWireless:

T-Mobile has been less enthusiastic about the open Radio Access Network (RAN) space than its wireless rivals, but that doesn’t mean it’s disinterested. It’s just waiting for the ecosystem to develop.

That’s one of the take-aways from Neville Ray’s appearance at a UBS investor conference on Friday where he reviewed the “un-carrier’s” progress in deployment low-, mid- and high-band spectrum for 5G. He also reiterated T-Mobile’s two-year head start over its peers.

“We just have to be patient,” said Ray, T-Mobile’s president of Technology, about the move to open RAN. “The ecosystem in O-RAN is going to take some time to develop. You look at the radio business today and you have three major incumbents, right? One of them Chinese. It’s a massive scale game and it’s a complex business… There’s massive R&D in this space to future-proof your networks. There’s a whole debate about who built and developed this stuff and who owns the IP. We see that almost every day… That’s not just the radio vendors,” but Qualcomm and many others that are involved.
