Executive Opinion

DISH's Chief Network Officer, Marc Rouanne, said, "The open and intelligent architecture of our greenfield network will give us the ability to source a diverse technology ecosystem, including U.S.-based solution providers. Mavenir will help us lay the foundation for an innovative software-defined network with the flexibility, intelligence, and scalability to deliver applications that will redefine the U.S. wireless industry."

President and CEO of Mavenir, Pardeep Kohli, said, "We are honored to be partnering with DISH Network and being recognized for our innovation and leadership in developing and delivering innovative solutions. Working with DISH, we will be supporting the deployment of the world's largest cloud-native OpenRAN 5G network."

DISH and Mavenir

As part of the agreement, Mavenir will provide Dish with a cloud-native OpenRAN software. The deal will enable the first software-defined 5G wireless broadband network in the US.

DISH will lease the spectrum from the T-Mobile as it continues to build its own 5G network connectivity in the wake of the merger between the Sprint and T-Mobile.

Under this new merger, the US Department of Justice ruled that the pair must divest their pay as you go businesses to DISH, to make sure adequate competition into the current market.
