What are your 2024 predictions for Open RAN - Analog Devices trends?

“The industry is making a lot of progress in deploying Open RAN at scale, and 2024 will see this continue. We’ve gone through the hype cycle with Open RAN and we’re getting to a point where it’s really building momentum. Traditional operators will take longer to adapt, but we are seeing movement. There’s a lot of support, and I think the main motivation has been to drive innovation. We’re still going to see a mixed mode in 5G, but by the time we get to 6G, it will inherently be Open RAN from day one.”
