Nokia suspends O-RAN Alliance work

Nokia has stopped working with O-RAN Alliance amid fears that the participation of Chinese companies in the list of non-legal entities in the United States could expose the company to potential sanctions.

The GSMA-affiliated O-RAN Association is one of the largest working groups in the industry dedicated to Open RAN technology – a provider-neutral approach to radio access (RAN) technologies such as antennas, masts and small cells.
