DISH has forged a multi-year partnership deal with Altiostar, a virtual radio access networks (vRAN) solutions provider, for its nationwide 5G rollout.

As part of this deal, Altiostar will provide DISH with its cloud-native O-RAN solution. The Altiostar solution will provide openness, modularity, agility, and scalability to DISH, enabling faster deployment of new 5G services for consumers and businesses.

As per Altiostar, its cloud-native microservice-based O-RAN solution will allow DISH to dynamically scale its network on the basis of the type of applications and services being deployed. Further, it would enable DISH to build a differentiated 5G network using a software-defined open platform.
