Mobile Network Operators have traditionally been dependent on a handful of vendors. This dependency made the upgrades slower, increased cost and hampered innovation. Adoption of open and disaggregated solution has enabled Cloud Service Providers to innovate rapidly. Operators understand the need for innovation and are increasingly evolving to transparency and disaggregation from conventional and proprietary strategies. Networks with 5 G are expected to be 10X denser than networks with 4G. More vendor equipment will be required for the denser network, contributing to an extra risk of vendor lock-in. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to explore a potential solution to the problem described above. The idea of the Vendor Agnostic Open Product System was conceptualized by Niral Networks. The Niral Open Product Structure allows MNO’s shift to operator controlled from vendor controlled, hence reducing the risk of vendor lock-in and fostering competition through better supplier, product, cost and solution management.
