Open RAN Studio Series EP02

What is Open RAN Studio?

BubbleRAN Open RAN Studio, MX-ORS, product is world-first production-grade cloud-native platform to seamlessly design, operate, experiment an emulated end-to-end 4G/5G Open RAN network with edge services, at scale.

Why Open RAN Studio Mini-Series?

  1. Create a focused channel on the topic of Open RAN and O-RAN
  2. Share knowledge and the latest developments and achievements in the area of 4G/5G Cloud-Native Open RAN/O-RAN
  3. Demonstrate O-RAN stack in reality using Open RAN studio (an end-to-end 4F/5G Open RAN platform)
  4. Accelerate the R&D lifecycle from Idea to PoC and validate use-cases
  5. Provide Open Documentation in a form of Tutorials and lab materials
  6. Foster Academia and Industry Collaboration

Upcoming Episodes

We are going to touch upon various topics around Open Source, Open RAN, and programmability. Some of the items will include:

  1. Cloud-Native Multi-vendor Open RAN deployment
  2. Real-Time RIC and xApps
  3. Realistic Data collections
  4. MLDevKit within the Open RAN ecosystem
  5. The current Open-RAN-related research topics
  6. Network store
  7. Role of digital twin within Open RAN

What are the benefits of Open RAN studios?

Using Open RAN studio, now developers, vendors, and Operators are able to:

  1. develop NFs/xApps/rApps and on-board them using a software development kit (SDK)
  2. design a multi-vendor Open RAN network blueprints tailored to your use-case
  3. deploy and operate their blueprints at scale
  4. control and reconfigure RAN via xApps/rApps
  5. collect datasets and analyze network control and user planes.

In addition, they can learn and reuse existing resources via open documentation.
