This is the official centre launch and experimentation will begin in new end to end mobile solutions to support DCMS’s diversification strategy.

Open networks and Open RAN in particular is an area of considerable interest and activity with huge potential, and it will be key for the future of networking, and opportunities for innovators in the UK and beyond.

Why attend?

This event will showcase activities and lessons from the first phase of the SONIC Labs, including demonstrations of three end to end functional Open RAN systems. 

Our aim is to understand the limits of interoperability, potential for swapability, and impacts. We continue to seek new and interesting products and integrations to form SONIC Labs’s next cohort, as well as developing improvements to the open network / Open RAN testbed with specialised test and measurement solutions.
