About Ran World

The meeting place for the international RAN community

RAN World discusses and addresses the real-world radio access challenges of operators; how can they host as much capacity as possible on their network, giving a seamless experience, without interference, thereby offering a better customer experience? The event bridges the gap between business strategy and technical expertise, bringing MNO CTOs and engineers together for a deep-dive look into challenges, sharing and growing knowledge.

The third edition of RAN World promises to be even bigger and better.


Why attend RAN World?

Working Groups

An ever-popular feature of the event, RAN World will feature the next series of working groups, which will enable participants to drill down into a specific topic of interest in depth, and in an interactive format to encourage discussion, with the goal of advancing both technology and best practices.

Working group leaders will conduct surveys in the run-up to the event; results of which will be shared on site.




"RAN infrastructure is evolving so rapidly that coping with sustainability, complexity and investment life cycle is the challenge. Decisions taken today may significantly impact the business model in few years from now. The RAN WORLD event is a great occasion both to focus the technology vision and to keep the vendor community aligned to Operator's objectives and concerns"

Rino Buccio, CTO, Linkem



Returning for 2016, the RAN World Awards (the RANNYs) will reward radio access network innovation and achievement.
