O-RAN-SC TOC meeting

Report from O-RAN-SC TOC meeting

  • suggestion by O-RAN-SC
    • too many parts are develop outside of O-RAN-SC
  • opens the question about the scope of open-source projects


Postman scripts to interface with the SMO and in turn test O1 interface between the SMO and different parts of O-RAN instances of O-CU, O-DU, O-RU and RIC using these models. 

  • yang modules
  • framework for test and validate CM 

share content in in SMO gerrit and create wiki linking to the same source

  • Working on a framework for vendors for OAM/YANG tests
  • O-RAN-SC to host the framework
  • Postman and vsCode as RestClients
  • Alex about to setup a SIM in OSC lab - involve Rittwik in a O-RAN private lab
  • OpenFronthaul
  • 3GPP models are considered.

Feedback from Rittwik

  • SMO in T-Labs
  • how to run Netopeer server - req to Felix (O-RAN-SC INT PTL)
  • Alex asked for VMs 

Init script (Postman) for O-RAN OAM FH M-Plane (o-ran-interface.yang augmenting ) interface demoed

RFC8040 (RestConf by IETF) support supported by ODL


O-RAN Component deployment

The question is: How to deploy the red colored CNFs/VNFs of the O-RAN-Architecture?

  • CNF for O-RAN-components 
    • model of CNF - how to be configured, how many components, blueprints
    • CDS model needs to be created
    • Network-service based on several CNFs
      • CNF types
        • Near-RT-RIC
        • O-CU-UP
        • O-CU-CP
        • O-DU

For detailed discussion the following page was created:


  • for Network Functions (priority)
  • for Network Service (second step)

CNFs or VNFs

  • both should be considered 
    • let's start with CNFs first
    • VNF is considered as additional option

  • no CNFs and VNFs combined in a single package
    • maybe not for rApps → 
    • VNF should take care about internal CNFs

ONAP/CCSDK - INT - script based testing by copy from O-RAN-SC repos

  • guidelines for such scripting - hints, guidelines, ... - @john - for Honolulu 

OTF - Open Test Framework - add link to O-RAN-SC INT/OTF Martin SkorupskiDont forget


Status report

  • A1
  • use case for enrichment management
  • portal enhancements
  • app metadata apps (control loops)
    • what is the different between between (rApp, µService, onap-app) - answer by Martin Skorupski: none (wink) )
    • common app functions? subject of definition
  • rApp catalog
