In a recent announcement, Rakuten Symphony has disclosed a collaboration with NEC XON to help promote Open RAN promotion in Africa.

We’re thrilled to team up with NEC XON in South Africa to empower greenfield and brownfield telco operators, enterprises and governments across Africa to easily build and deploy quality 5G OpenRAN cloud-native network services at speed and low cost, generate new revenue streams, and offer customers innovative and immersive experiences.

We believe that teaming up with NEC XON will allow us to expand in the region and help MNOs and service providers to move to a new generation of mobile networks which is based on 4G and 5G OpenRAN technology.

Karim Chaari, Sales Director, MEA, Rakuten Symphony

It is crucial to understand that 5G adoption is a commercial proposition. While there are many use cases, and many of them for noble cases such as advanced healthcare, and many use cases that would be beneficial in Africa, it is always important to consider the business case in context.
