031: What the hell is OPENRAN? And how will it impact the future of 5G? w/ BlueFire's Rob Jones

TechBurst Asia Podcast

There’s a new tech industry buzzword floating around that I need to understand better - and that buzzword is OpenRAN. The reason I need to understand it better is because it seems like it has the capability to transform the way mobile operators purchase, deploy and support their networks.  In the old days, it was easy, you rang up one of the network equipment manufacturers, like Nokia, Ericsson or Huawei, and they built your network. But with OpenRAN, operators can choose from hundreds of vendors and thousands of network configurations. That sounds complex - so I want to understand better what OpenRAN is - and why are so many companies and operators are excited by it.  In this podcast, we are joined by the Founder & CEO of the global business advisory firm BlueFire, Rob Jones, for our introduction to OpenRAN. Show Notes 02:00 Intro to Rob & BlueFire 05:00 What the hell is OpenRAN - and why should we care about it? 07:30 The transformation from buying from one vendor (e.g. Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei) to the OpenRAN model 11:00 OpenRAN promises massive OpEx and CapEx savings, can it deliver on those promises? And if so, what does that mean for the network equipment manufacturers.  18:00 Will the reduced costs de-risk 5G network investments and increase deployments? 22:00 How will the OpenRAN ecosystem evolve, and what role with the likes of Nokia, Ericsson and Huawei play in it? 27:00 The role of the hyperscalers - how Microsoft, Google, AWS and Facebook have jumped on the OpenRAN bandwagon. 31:00 OpenRAN's role in Private 5G 32:00 What will it take for OpenRAN to be a success? 35:00 What are the biggest risks across the OpenRAN ecosystem that could prevent it from living up to the hype? 40:00 Examples of mobile operator innovation, including Rakuten and Malaysia's 5G strategy 45:00 The bottom line - will OpenRAN live up to the hype

Buy Build and Sell - Rob Jones On Increasing The Valuation Of Your Business Upon Sale

Business Mastermind Podcast

This week Gavin talks to Rob Jones, a multiple CFO and founder of RJF Business Services, about the things you can do in order to increase the valuation multiple of your business upon sale. Sign Up Here: https://bit.ly/biz-pod KEY TAKEAWAYS There is an innate value in quality, and clients remember the value we offer. When dealing with anyone with whom you hope to build a fruitful relationship, add value now to reap the benefits later. The areas in which to examine when looking to buy a business are the financials and fiscal management elements. Some owners do not seem to think this important enough to take care of properly. When selling a business, remember that you are not selling a set of figures. You're selling the potential of a business. Seller confidence is gained through honest forecasting without too wild a variance in the actual figures. Those who project honestly, and meet those forecasts, are far more attractive to investors BEST MOMENTS 'If you get these things right in your business, you can be looking at an increased valuation' 'It's a long term project - it's about being along on their journey' 'If you just take a profit figure as a multiple then you're going to get a low valuation' 'You're trying to sell the potential of a business' VALUABLE RESOURCES The Business Mastermind Podcast To get 20% off at Knowable, go to www.knowable.fyi and enter the code GAVIN Get your copy of Survive And Thrive NOW at https://www.surviveandthrive.cc Keep Your Boat Afloat - https://www.survivetothrive.biz/keep-afloat gavin@gavinpreston.com RJF Business Services - https://rjf.uk.com/knowledge/team/rob-jones/ Rob Jones LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/startup-accountant-rob-jones/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST Gavin Preston Gavin is an inspirational Speaker, Business Strategist, Business Growth Mentor, Trainer and high-performance Coach.  He works with Business Owners and Entrepreneurs and has a strong track record in creating creative strategies to accelerate the growth of their business.

ROB JONES - Bronze Medal Winning Paralympian | US Marine Corps Veteran (S01E11)

Adventure More UK - "Catch You On The Flip Side"

"Catch You On The Flip Side" - Podcast with Rob Jones Rob joined the Marine Corps Reserve as a combat engineer at Bravo Company, 4th Combat Engineer Battalion in Roanoke, VA. In the Marine Corps, combat engineers are responsible for a multitude of disciplines but the primary role that him and his fellow combat engineers undertook was the use of explosives, and the detection of buried IEDs and weapons caches.  Rob deployed to Habbaniyah, Iraq in 2008, and again to Delaram/Sangin, Afghanistan in 2010. During his deployment to Afghanistan while operating as a part of a push into Taliban territory, he was tasked with clearing an area with a high likelihood of containing an IED. It was in this capacity that he was wounded in action by a land mine. The injury resulted in a left knee dis-articulation and a right above knee amputation of my legs.  He was taken to National Naval Medical Centre in Bethesda, MD for the initial phases of his recovery, which consisted primarily of healing and closing my wounds. He was then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Centre for the remainder of his rehabilitation. At Walter Reed he was fitted with prosthetics and worked very hard to learn how to walk with two bionic knees. he also used the time to relearn how to do other things with his new challenge including riding a bicycle, running, and rowing. Rob took naturally to rowing, and since he was always in search of a challenge that he can use to become better, Rob decided to train for the 2012 Paralympics. After being honourably discharged from the Marine Corps in December 2011, he immediately moved to Florida to train with his rowing partner, Oksana. He then moved to Charlottesville, Virginia to continue training until the Paralympics in September 2012. The hard work paid off for them as they brought home a bronze medal in the event. Rob continued in the sport of rowing through the 2013 season, where his partner and Rob placed 4th in the 2013 World Rowing Championships.   On October 14, 2013 he began a solo supported bike ride across America which started in Bar Harbour, Maine, and ended in Camp Pendleton, California.  The ride was 5,180 miles long and completed on April 13, 2014, a total of 181 days after it began.  Over the course of the ride, along with his team, he raised $126,000 for three charities which aid wounded veterans. In the fall of 2017, with the support of an incredible team, Rob accomplished my goal to run 31 marathons in 31 days in 31 different cities.  Beginning on Oct 12 in London, England and finishing on Nov 11 in Washington, DC, Rob ran 26.2 miles for 31 consecutive days in 31 major cities in the UK, Canada, and USA.  In conjunction with this, his team raised over $200,000.
