In her keynote titled "Beyond the Blueprint: The Lab Centric Approach to Open RAN Implementation," Renuka Bhalerao, discussed TIP’s role in developing and supporting blueprints in Open RAN deployment the importance of blueprint definition and how they want to take those blueprints all the way to making Open RAN deployment ready through a lab-centric approach. Renuka presented the keynote at this year’s i14y Lab Summit 2023, where she represented Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and Meta.
TIP, a non-profit organization based in the US and collaborative partner of the i14y Lab, is one of the leaders in fostering the collaborative Open RAN ecosystem. Bhalerao emphasized TIP's mission to unite service providers, technology partners, and connectivity stakeholders to develop, test, and deploy open, disaggregated solutions.
