O-RAN still not a challenge for Huawei or Ericsson

The wireless communications service industry has only four major equipment suppliers, of which Huawei in China and Ericsson in Sweden are the largest ones. None offer interchangeable products. 

This is not a happy situation for customers who are locked in by their chosen equipment provider. It is to be expected that the industry would seek an open market with interchangeable products.

To that end, the Open Radio Access Network Policy Coalition has been established by a large group of US and international companies with the intent to “accelerate open standards for RAN and promote a network ecosystem based on more diverse, secure, compatible and competitive elements.”
