Telecom giants Vodafone and Orange are breaking new ground with the first real-life 4G calls over a common shared network in an Open RAN setting. Stemming from a landmark endeavor near Bucharest, this initiative provides a glimpse into the potential strengths of an Open RAN-based network. What’s more? The progress doesn’t halt at 4G. The duo are set to soon take down another first – operating 2G and subsequently 5G, over shared Open RAN sites. Both operators see this as a model for extending mobile networks throughout rural Europe.

Google has elevated digital assistance with its AI-powered Google Assistant with Bard which assures enhanced user understanding and broad service range, an enticing departure from its voice-activated predecessor. Public access is earmarked soon, with notable privacy control assurance. Coupled with AI-centric Pixel additions, this advanced assistant optimistically envisages a future with intuitive personal AI, pushing generative AI’s benefits beyond perfecting selfies.

The EU’s first annual State of the Digital Decade report highlights an urgent call to action for increased investment to meet its 2030 technology targets. The report underlines the significance of collective efforts by member states to successfully navigate the prevalent digital transformation. The document illuminates areas such as 5G deployment, which has been slower than expected, and inadequate fiber network coverage, among others. Simultaneously, it draws attention to other essential aspects, like digital sovereignty and the digitalization of businesses, suggesting an additional investment of at least €200 billion may be necessary. Issues such as these could hamper the bloc’s ambition to double its share in the semiconductor sector by 2030.

Evolve IP focuses on making the future of work better through cutting-edge cloud collaboration technologies and emphasizes sustainability with fully carbon-neutral EMEA offices.

The UK’s popular Lake District, plagued by poor mobile service, is set for an upgrade with EE boosting its masts’ performance. The upgrades, part of the ambitious Shared Rural Network program, will improve coverage across less-accessible communities, attempting to achieve 95 percent UK coverage by 2025. While enhancing connectivity in the countryside, meeting an impending 2G and 3G network phase-out, these improvements respect the natural landscape and cater to rural communities’ unique needs. This project is hailed for supporting local lifestyles, businesses, tourism and potentially enabling fresh opportunities.

OneWeb’s constellation of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites will enhance network coverage for Softbank, particularly in challenging regions. The move aligns with Softbank’s ‘Ubiquitous Network’ strategy, which unifies diverse non-terrestrial network (NTN) solutions to expand digital services. Besides its surprise partnership with SpaceX’s Starlink, Softbank continues to boost its stake in OneWeb, supporting its Japanese launch and integration into the Ubiquitous Network.

In a promising move towards transparency, UK’s BT and software giant SAP have joined forces to test SAP’s Sustainability Data Exchange (SDX) – a novel system that captures, tracks and shares data on obscure, indirect emissions, known as Scope 3. Given the numerous entities and different methodologies involved in disclosure, SDX utilizes carbon data interoperability standards to provide a unified portal for monitoring supply chain emissions data, thus streamlining the gathering and dissemination of precise Scope 3 information.
