- Traditional vendors are more or less reluctant to embrace the full concept. Most reluctant have the highest market share
- Radio subsystem vendors : Open RAN “pure players”, mainly US, Japan, Korea and Taiwan are pushing strongly.
- Chipset vendors and cloud : Large chipset vendors are investing heavily to enable infrastructures compliant with RAN requirements Hyperscalers are preparing their infrastructure to support vRAN
- Integrators :Integrators are preparing to extend their market (IT, Platforms) to the RAN integration.
