This pole-position ranking – delivered through ABI Research’s respected and transparent process – is a significant endorsement of our dedicated mission to create the market conditions, forge the industry partnerships and deliver the technology innovation to accelerate ubiquitous and large-scale Open RAN deployments, generating powerful gains for operators and users alike.”
Using a rigorous and thorough assessment framework, ABI Research has evaluated the leading Open RAN vendors to provide a comprehensive and authoritative picture of the competitive dynamics of the Open RAN vendor ecosystem. The core areas of analysis span ten criteria, segmented across innovation and implementation clusters – including R&D activities, O-RAN Alliance contributions, support for mMIMO, recent commercial momentum, product portfolio, geographical coverage, partnerships and memberships, PoCs/trials/testing, energy efficiency commitments and brownfield deployments – concluding with an in-depth profile of the implementation and innovation strategies of the major market players.
Saqlain Ali, Senior Analyst at ABI Research remarked: “Mavenir ranked overall leader in the competitor ranking and earned the top spots for both innovation and implementation. Mavenir has demonstrated its role as a leading Open RAN vendor due to its end-to-end cloud-native software and hardware and O-RAN Alliance-compliant solutions.”
He added: “Mavenir has made significant efforts to accelerate Open RAN deployments in partnerships with other mobile, chipset vendors, and cloud providers to validate its Open RAN portfolio for multi-vendor deployments. Mavenir’s customer base is diverse, with Mavenir serving 300+ CSPs in more than 120 countries.”
The report authors highlight several areas where Mavenir is demonstrating its role as a leading industry innovator in the Open RAN domain, including its provision of end-to-end cloud-native software and hardware solutions with a comprehensive portfolio covering the core, edge and Open RAN. Further emphasized in the framework are Mavenir’s open and fully virtualized RAN (vRAN), its O-RAN Alliance-compliant solution designed to support Open RAN Functional Split (FS) options, plus Mavenir’s OpenBeam™ mMIMO portfolio, which supports both the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and O-RAN Alliance-compliant radios.
Mavenir’s clear commercial momentum during 2023 is a key factor in its top-ranking performance, including its announcement of multiple successful trials and new strategic partnerships with CSPs, cloud providers, and chipset vendors. The assessors particularly note the expansion of Mavenir’s geographical coverage in supporting major mobile operators with Open RAN deployment. Finally, the report draws attention to the considerable breadth of Mavenir’s partner ecosystem, plus its active collaboration with cloud providers, chipset vendors, mobile vendors, and operators to perform Open RAN integration and interoperability testing.

41% of Companies “Would Struggle” to Provide CSRD Data21.2.2024 08:22:00 CET | Press release
Some 41% of businesses fear that they would struggle to provide the data required to comply with new regulations.1 According to nShift, the global leader in parcel delivery management software, the longer companies leave starting to track their carbon emissions, the harder it will be to comply.

While the exact implementation deadline differs among sectors and countries, experts want that there is no time to waste. Putting off emissions monitoring until later risks creating a “steeper climb to compliance”. Mattias Gredenhag, CTO at nShift said, “The sooner companies start tracking emissions and compiling the required information, the better. For ecommerce and multi-channel retailers, this will include tracking the emissions on shipments. The longer businesses leave it, the steeper the climb
