In the latest Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Insights Series 2020 for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), the CTO of UK Vodafone announced Vodafone’s commitment to deploy 2,600 Open Radio Access Network (RAN) sites between now and 2027, reaching 1,150 installed base by 2023. This is one of the first large-scale deployments of Open RAN in Europe. Vodafone would also initiate a tender covering more than 100,000 sites in 14 countries in Europe. Open RAN deployment is focusing more on rural deployment in the first half of the deployment forecast, and then shifting to urban deployment once the technology and ecosystem mature further.
