Thursday 6 August 2020 | 16:04 CET | News
Vodafone said it has become the first UK mobile operator to switch on a live Open radio Access Network (OpenRAN) 4G site, enabling the introduction of more suppliers for mobile networks. The first site is now connecting the Royal Welsh Showground in Powys, Wales, with the help of Mavenir.
