Google has actually announced that they will be joining the O-RAN Alliance.
Established in 2018 by AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, NTT DOCOMO, and Orange, the O-RAN Alliance’s objective is to “re-shape the RAN industry towards more intelligent, open, virtualized and fully interoperable mobile networks” by introducing global standards that can be used for RAN deployments.
By joining the group, Google means to contribute toward these standards in the sector, Google says that : “We believe that industry-wide open reference architectures and interfaces for RAN are key to driving innovation across CSP mobile networks — with the O-RAN Alliance driving significant advances in the RAN layer and already gaining traction with a number of large CSPs who have become early adopters of the standard ”
Especially, Google will work with O-RAN initiatives in software application, 5G, network-based artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and multi-cloud environments.
Google published its Global Mobile Side Cloud (GMEC) strategy in March 2020. Google Cloud is now focused on three areas:
1- The monetization of 5G networks “especially in connection with Business services and solutions”
2- data-driven customers experiences
3- The improvement of operational efficiency across critical telecommunications systems.
