All of this adds up to a full embrace of collaboration as a guiding principle in building a network that’s never been built before. Sidd pointed to the use of Open RAN standards combined with cloud-native principles that will give enterprise users greater control over their networks, realizing the vision of having a programmable network that adapts to the needs of the customer. Brian showed how DISH Wireless acts as an integrator between thousands of sites and partners. He also emphasized that experimentation and innovation requires collaboration with developers and users. And Dave brought the message home, calling out the general contractors, tower companies and enterprise customers as all critical to building a network that’s never been attempted before.
Embracing a cloud-native mindset, focusing on customers as more than just consumers and working at every step with an ever-growing team of collaborators allows DISH Wireless to enable innovation and continue to drive conversations, all the way to Connect(X) 2023 and beyond.
