RAN automation takes over the role of carrying out daily repetitive tasks and processes by using a machine-learning functionality that is focused on the radio network.


A RAN Intelligent Controller is a software-defined component of the Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) architecture that’s responsible for controlling and optimizing RAN functions. The RIC is a critical piece of the Open RAN disaggregation strategy, bringing multivendor interoperability, intelligence, agility, and programmability to radio access networks. The RIC enables the onboarding of third-party applications that automate and optimize RAN operations at scale.


In O-RAN architecture, the intelligent automation is facilitated by a RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC). This provides more functions closer to the edge with more interfaces for network managers to leverage. What’s more, this can be implemented on different layers of the RAN and decisions such as optimization at the edge can be made in near real-time.


The RIC enables the development and execution of intelligent applications driven by machine learning (ML), which can implement specific network management operations as cloud-native applications, including mobility management, quality of experience, slicing and admission control.


Although there are several challenges associated with RAN automation, it may be beneficial to deploy it in the right way. RAN automation platforms with cutting-edge technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) are paving the way to achieve maximum automation maturity and can map technical requirements to end-to-end network functions service chains, delivering customized fit connectivity to each user. Leveraging automation and use of CI/CD technology, MNOs will be able to expand their capabilities and give the best of network services with telecom automation testing tools to play a great part in this race and become one of the best mobile network service providers.


The global RAN Automation and RIC market is dominated by companies from Nokia, Parallel Wireless, Ericsson, Juniper Networks and Vmware, etc. Top three players occupy for over 54.04% market share in 2021.


The global RAN Automation and RIC market size will reach USD 11,226.96 million in 2028, growing at a CAGR of 54.00% over the analysis period.
