October 2023 Roadmap
In October 2023, we will be focusing on the following topics:
Week#41 2023 MX-ORS
ORS on Public Clouds
Open RAN Studio on Google Kubernetes Engine
Starting in October 2023, Open RAN Studio (MX-ORS) will be available to be deployed on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) via Terraform and for multiple groups. This enables the universities to use MX-ORS for multiple groups of students without the need of having dedicated physical servers.
Supports autoscaling GKE clusters
The region and zone of the GKE cluster could be customized
Scales for multiple groups
Declaratively define and ORS module for Terraform
Merge the commands to the CLI
Support for EKS and AKS
Needs at least license for ORS and for five times the number of groups as for the nodes. So for example, if a customer wants to use ORS on GKE for 10 groups, they need a license for 50 nodes. The license for public clouds provides unlimited nodes.
Billing for the service is done directly by the cloud provider separate from the subscription fees for the ORS license.
Week#42 2023 MX-HUB, MX-ORS, MX-PDK, MX-PRO
OAI-CN v1.5.1 & OAI-RAN v2.0.0
Update the OpenAirInterface artifacts to the latest releases
The OpenAirInterface (OAI) artifacts will be updated to the latest releases, including the Snap packages and the Docker images. This new version also introduces the support for new network functions from OAI, including the NRF, AUSF, UDM, UDR, PCF, and NSSF. It also incorporates the support for 4G and 5G-NSA. Alongside these changes, the configurations in the composition models would be updated to the latest version with support of the new features such as profiles and tests.
Automated unit tests using BATS
Three different deployment modes for the CN: minimal, sba, and full
eNB and gNB with the latest FlexRIC E2 agent on E2AP v2 and KPM v3
Helm chart tests for the composition models
Snap installation via the CLI
Week#43 2023 MX-ORS, MX-PDK, MX-PRO
RIC MON via ODIN
Deploy cloud-native observability using ODIN
The cloud-native observability would include monitoring of the RANs via E2 as well as energy metrics via KEPLER and compute metrics via Prometheus.
Multi-x measurements with a single data lake
Scalable data collection and storage
Declarative requests via ODIN
ODIN integration for the CLI
The features introduced in this roadmap will be part of the release version 2.0.0 of Trirematics, scheduled for the 31/10/2023. The customers would receive the new version upon request, within the first week of November 2023.
