Ericsson accelerates Open RAN through NTIA funded Open RAN R&D Center
Ericsson is committed to developing and industrializing Open RAN. A significant next step in that journey has now been realized with the recent announcement of an award by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to an AT&T and Verizon lead consortium to establish an Open RAN Testing, Evaluation and R&D Center in Dallas with US customers and other industry players. Ericsson is one of the leading vendors in that consortium. This new lab will be funded through the Public Wireless Supply Chain Innovation Fund, a strategic investment by the US Government to increase innovation and diversity in the wireless ecosystem.
