Brazil to collaborate with Japan on open RAN

Brazilian regulator Anatel has signed an agreement with the Japanese government focused on open RAN, with the goal of increasing deployments of the technology in Brazil and developing new business opportunities between the countries.

 The deal will see the partners share knowledge relating to open RAN such as spectrum policies, carry out tests, and collaborate with other countries. Japan’s general director for international affairs Nomura Eigo noted that the partners would also strengthen their cooperation on 5G as the technology continues to gain traction in Brazil.

Anatel chief Carlos Baigorri described open RAN as an “opportunity for Brazilian industry” as the increased range of suppliers and disaggregation of network equipment would make the market more competitive. The partners noted that the deal came about as a result of their aligned interests in developing competition-friendly regulation.
