Mavenir Joins FCC Chairman Pai at Forum on 5G Open Radio Access Networks

RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mavenir’s Senior Vice President of Business Development John Baker will speak at the Federal Communications Commission’s Forum on 5G Open Radio Access Networks next week, joining industry colleagues and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to tout how OpenRAN can advance American interests in the race to 5G and help deploy cheaper and more secure networks more quickly.


Chairman Pai is convening a day-long discussion featuring several panels of industry experts with deep business and technical expertise in OpenRAN deployment – an illustration of the growing popularity in Washington and within the industry of using OpenRAN to boost competition and vendor diversity in forthcoming 5G networks. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will also speak at the event, which will take place on Sept. 14.

Baker will speak on the panel, “Lessons from the Field: Where Do We Go from Here?” at 1:40 p.m. EST. With Chairman Pai as the moderator, he will be joined by representatives from AT&T, DISH, HPE, JIO, Parallel Wireless and Nokia.

“I look forward to speaking to Mavenir’s current deployments of OpenRAN around the globe and how this approach offers a more competitive, innovative and secure path to mobile networks,” said Baker. “We appreciate Chairman Pai and the FCC taking the time to convene this important forum in recognition of OpenRAN as a critical component of further establishing the United States’ leadership on 5G.”

More information about the Forum can be found here, and it can be streamed live here on Sept. 14.
