      As the latest generation of wireless networks comes to life and the impact of 5G starts taking shape, the change across the network is enormous and far-reaching. The driving force behind this shift is network disaggregation – O-RAN is reshaping the ecosystem, creating lower barriers to participation, new technology and novel, open approaches to infrastructure.

      Recently, ADI executives joined some of the biggest names across 5G ecosystem – including: Facebook Connectivity, Vodafone and Marvell – to discuss the changes coming from network disaggregation and what opportunities are in store for the industry in the years to come.

      Featured panelists:

      • Joe Barry, VP Wireless Communications, Analog Devices
      • Greg Henderson, SVP, Automotive, Communications, and Aerospace & Defense
      • Paco Martin, Head of Network Planning, Vodafone
      • Jaydeep Ranade, Director, Wireless Engineering, Facebook Connectivity
      • Raj Singh, EVP Processors Business Group, Marvell
