Beyond the Hype: Navigating the Cost-Effective Future of 5G with Open RAN

Posted on January 11, 2024January 11, 2024

5G technology offers a unique opportunity to increase capacity, enhance the customer experience, and reduce operational costs. This can be achieved through Open RAN and the expansion and diversification of the vendor ecosystem; by promoting an environment of open and interoperable hardware and software, 5G deployment can reshape the telecommunications landscape, making it more cost-effective for operators and creating a competitive marketplace that ultimately benefits consumers.

As technology advances, our networks can’t be left behind.  Moving to virtualization and software defined networks decreases a network’s hardware footprint, in turn lowering costs and making repairs and upgrades achievable via clicks on a keyboard rather than manual service operations.
First, the cost savings of virtual networks are baked into Open RAN networks.

Second,  an Open RAN system allows operators to select the best and most cost-effective components and upgrades every step of the way while avoiding vendor lock-in. This increased competition will help keep costs in check throughout deployment and operation, and also lead to specialized components at scale that will further drive down costs. These factors will change the underlying cost structure for vendors and operators.  

We are currently witnessing the tangible results of the cost-saving efforts. Analysts from New Street Research recently conducted a report in response to Rakuten Mobile’s assertion that Open RAN offers a more cost-effective solution. The research findings indicate that, on a per-site basis, capital expenditures were 40% lower, and operational expenses were 30% lower.

Rakuten Medical hopeful of bringing its “transformative” cancer therapy in 2026: COO

Updated - January 29, 2024 at 09:23 AM.

The company expects to complete its trials next year and launch in 2026

With 80 patients enrolled in India on a global trial involving Rakuten Medical Inc’s “transformative therapy” targeting head and neck cancer, the US-headquartered biotech company expects to potentially launch in certain countries including India in 2026.

Rakuten’s precision, cell-targeting therapies based on its proprietary Alluminox platform is approved in Japan, and is presently undergoing global phase III trials, involving 275 patients, in the US, Taiwan and India.

This “highly selective treatment using light” has the potential to become the fifth pillar of cancer treatment, after surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy, Abhijit Bhatia, Rakuten Medical’s Chief Operating Officer, told businessline, speaking from San Diego. The company expects to complete its trials next year and launch in 2026, he said.

Six medical institutions are participating in the study, all sites have gone live, and the first patient in India received Alluminox treatment (photoimmunotherapy) using ASP-1929 in August 2023, the company said. The patients on theASP-1929-301 trial include a mix of those getting the innovative therapy and those getting the standard of care.

Rakuten’s Vietnamese subsidiary to relocate amid growth plans

November 14, 2023

Rakuten‘s Vietnamese subsidiary, Rakuten FinTech Vietnam Co., Ltd., has revealed that it will relocate as it looks to expand its business operations.

The company’s relocation marks a pivotal step amidst its growth, supported by Rakuten Card’s drive for sustainable expansion. The move underscores the company’s commitment to accelerating systems development for an increasingly diverse service portfolio.

Equipped to accommodate around 200 employees, the office is furnished with conference rooms, huddle spaces, and booths, fostering an ideal collaborative environment for project teams. Furthermore, the inclusion of a cafeteria and relaxation zone not only serves as a space for rejuvenation, but also functions as ample meeting spaces for larger gatherings.

Since its inception in July 2005, Rakuten Card has actively fostered cross-utilisation among various Rakuten Group services, propelling the widespread adoption of cashless payments both within and beyond the Group’s ecosystem.

This proactive approach has resulted in the issuance of over 29.54 million Rakuten Cards by September 2023. Concurrently, Rakuten Card has achieved a remarkable annual shopping gross transaction volume, exceeding 20 trillion yen within the 12-month period from October 2022 to September 2023. This sustained growth firmly establishes the company as a prominent leader within the Japanese credit card industry.

31.01.24 13:09

Tokyo, Jan. 24 (Jiji Press)--Rakuten Securities Inc. is on track to mark a record new account openings in January, thanks to the expansion of Japan's NISA small-lot investment program and the country's robust stock market, President Yuji Kusunoki said in an interview with Jiji Press on Wednesday.

The number of general securities accounts opened by individuals at the major Japanese online brokerage this month is seen exceeding the previous record monthly high of 250,000 marked in March 2021, Kusunoki said, suggesting that the pace of new account openings picked up in December 2023.
The total number of accounts at the brokerage surpassed 10 million last month, he added.

Kusunoki stressed that the NISA expansion has led to an increase in regular purchases of investment trusts. Monthly purchases of investment trusts averaged 50,000 yen per investor as of Jan. 10, up 90 pct from a year before.

Rakuten Debt: Kicking the can down the road

Norbert Gehrke

Over the past year, Rakuten has worked to procure various non-interest-bearing debt funding, including the issuance of new equity through a public offering and concurrent third-party allotments, the secondary offering of shares of Rakuten Bank in April 2023 and December 2023, and the partial transfer of shares of Rakuten Securities to Mizuho Securities in November 2022 and December 2023.
Given the large amount of debt coming due over the next 18 months, Rakuten will need to continuously work on balance sheet management through reduction of total debt and proactive debt maturity management.

As such, Rakuten has commenced tender offers to purchase for cash for the two large USD-denominated bonds coming due this calendar year.

After the settlement of the Offers, Rakuten intends to repurchase certain of their JPY denominated senior bonds scheduled to mature in and after 2024 with cash on hand and any remaining proceeds from the Offering. There are JPY 20bn and JPY 10bn instruments coming due at the end of June 2024, as well as a JPY 75bn bond in early December 2024. The “big kahuna” is a JPY 250bn bond maturing in February 2025.
