2. 2 The First “OpenRAN” Deployments are now underway OpenRAN is more than virtualized RAN

3. Drivers for OpenRAN • Dependence…on walled garden suppliers • Frustration…around the ability to change • Achievable…Open standards for RAN • Formation…OpenRAN ecosystem • Not a revolution – need Carrier adoption • Hard decisions and risk taking Operators need to start now or face the consequences 3 Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019

4. Open Source – Processes and platforms Addressing 5G OpenRAN Challenges 4 Bits/sec/hertz/$ - New TCO Business Models, Cost and Resiliency Virtualization - All Elements Virtualized except the Radio Open Interfaces – Resistance to Vendor Lock in Low cost RRUs – Merchant Chipsets replacing proprietary design New Suppliers - Open, Multivendor, enlarged supply chain Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019

5. 5 OpenRAN “Open Interface Applications" on "Open Market Hardware" Anything else is considered proprietary Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019 Major Ecosystem Influencers include: Facebook, TIP, OpenCompute, O-RAN vRAN is an Application

6. The Big Picture – OpenRAN 6 •Don’t miss the big picture • OpenRAN – Not just virtualized RAN • Derived TCO benefits from OpenRAN • 5G is OpenRANvRAN Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019

7. TCO Benefits of OpenRAN Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019 7 • Vendor lock in: • Possible to run multi vRAN applications • Possible change vendor overnight • Run multiple applications on the DU • DU Application store • KPI management as an Application • Minimize RAN inventory • Lower maintenance and support cost • Single Test for RAN nodes Eliminate operator Lab testing • Merchant Chip Sets to replace proprietary designs

8. “OpenRAN Radio” 8 • Cost reduction to drive densification • O-Ran enables a fully specified radio • Chipsets define internal interfaces • Common OpenRAN part numbers • ODM’s realize global volume • Single test house approval 2008 2018 3sectorD-RANOpenRan Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019

9. The 5G Problem 9 • Payback for Europe not expected until 2026. • For 5G, low latency is a key differentiator from 4G LTE • 5G NR in the same spectrum bands is similar to LTE • But low latency connectivity is only enabled by 5G – 5G revenue-generating apps & services will have to utilize low latency to show value. • 10 % of a wide-area build, the costs will reduce by 90 percent compared to the wire-area network. • The business case that works is to initially only build 5G OpenRAN ‘hotspots’ where for low latency to provide value-added services. “5G OpenRAN hotspot deployment is the business case that works for 5G” Source:- Mavenir whitepaper A real 5G Business Case that works: 5G Hotspots. iGR Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019

11. Summary 11 • Operators need to start now or face the consequences • Open standards and interfaces are achievable • OpenRAN ecosystem in formation • OpenRAN is Not a revolution – need Carrier adoption • OpenRAN TCO – computed across whole business • Moving the core to the edge enables 5G low latency services and a profitable business plan. With 4G & 5G Industry is about to see significant transformation Mavenir OpenRAN and 5G Network Economics June 2019
