Ep 10 – 2021 Forecast: cloudy with a chance of OpenRAN

We’re stepping away from our usual interview format to bring you a quick and breezy year-end look at 2020’s big headlines and 2021 trends to watch. If you’re like me, you’re ready to say ADIOS to 2020 and welcome bright-eyed 2021.

We’re staring down a year that will demand bold action and innovation. Telcos are going to have to step up or go home when it comes to the public cloud. Who will be in the winner’s circle at the end of the year?

  • Gutsy telco badasses [4:54];
  • OpenRAN [7:50];
  • And Elon friggin’ Musk – don’t miss the Telco in 20 Takeaway [9:19] to be dumbstruck by the list of what he accomplished in 2020;
  • And check out my secret message to listeners at the end!
