Virtualizing the Air Chain

What will the future air chain look like?

This ebook from Radio World explores one of the most pressing topics in radio technology.

The concepts of virtualization and putting parts of the air chain in the cloud were already on the minds of forward-looking managers; and the 2020 health crisis has accelerated the trend even over the past few months. New products, new software and new partnerships are helping bring the future closer.

We sat down with five leading industry technologists for a roundtable discussion.

Find out what Roz Clark, Alan Jurison, Shane Toven, Philipp Schmid and Greg Shay had to say when we asked about the implications of virtual; the shift from a cap-ex to an op-ex model; what parts of the air chain are or will be virtualized; and what will virtualization bring to the “back end” of the airchain.
