O-RAN Software Community 7th release “G” expanded to 13 project streams

In December 2022, following on the half year release cycle, the O-RAN Software Community (OSC) published its 7th open software release named "G". For the G release, the OSC expanded to 13 project streams, adding a new AI/ML Framework project.

With each release, OSC’s open software continues to greatly help companies to develop, test and integrate their commercial open and intelligent RAN solutions. Contributions to OSC’s open software come from a diverse community, delivering a broad scope of software according to latest O-RAN ALLIANCE specifications.

"I am so delighted to see the 7th release and the addition of the new AI/ML Framework project stream from our open source community," said Chih-Lin I, Chief Scientist from China Mobile and Co-chair of O-RAN Technical Steering Committee. "With O-RAN ALLIANCE moving into its 5th year, we look forward to evolving towards a new phase. I deeply believe that the power of open source is essential in pushing O-RAN's progress to new heights in the coming years."

“The growth of the O-RAN Software Community has been tremendous. With the O-RAN SC G release, this milestone will help further accelerate O-RAN globally and advance the deployment of flexible networks demanding carrier-grade cloud-native infrastructure as we move towards an intelligent systems world fueled by innovative edge applications,” said Gil Hellmann, vice president, Telecom Solutions Engineering, Wind River. “For the latest O-RAN SC G release, Wind River has continued to provide key contributions to the INF project by working with the community to enable more Open RAN related features in StarlingX and implementing a framework supporting the latest published O2 interface, which is pivotal to cloud infrastructure management and deployment operations. We look forward to continuing our close collaboration.”

New Open Testing and Integration Centres (OTIC) approved in Japan and North America

O-RAN ALLIANCE is pleased to announce Japan OTIC and North American OTIC in NYC Metro Area/East (COSMOS) joining the community of Open Testing and Integration Centres. With this addition there are now 9 approved OTICs across Europe, the Americas and Asia.

“Shared testing and integration are key to delivering commercial O-RAN solutions, so it is great to see more OTICs being approved in North America and around the world,” said Igal Elbaz, Network CTO of AT&T and Board member of O-RAN ALLIANCE. “OTICs are also part of O-RAN PlugFests and the O-RAN Certification and Badging program, promoting more confidence in O-RAN products, components, and solutions within the industry.”

"We are delighted with the start of Japan OTIC, pinned by the opening ceremony last month, and believe the neutral and open testing environment for vendors will help to advance O-RAN solutions," said Naoki Tani, EVP and CTO at NTT DOCOMO and Board member of O-RAN ALLIANCE. "NTT DOCOMO has deployed 5G networks nationwide with O-RAN compliant equipment and intends to further expand the O-RAN ecosystem as co-host of Japan OTIC together with YRP R&D Promotion Committee and Japanese operators.”
