And there is also a focus on fostering cooperation in machine learning, and network automation and optimisation with CSPs and industry partners.Those partners include operators KDDI, Ooredoo, Orange, SoftBank Group and Turkcell, along with Intel, Nvidia, Red Hat and Wind River.Fredrik Jejdling, EVP and head of Business Area Networks said it had created the space to “develop architectures and common operating standards that complement existing 5G ready technology”.In addition to cloud RAN, Ericsson has been a vocal backer of an open network approach, insisting virtualised networks can complement its traditional business model.
