CONTENTS

This condensed Open RAN course is the perfect way to kick-start your path on the Open RAN journey, regardless of your end goal. Perhaps you are aiming for an expert level of knowledge, and this is your first stepping stone, or you just want to keep up with the buzz and learn what is going on at the current forefront of the mobile evolution.

Open RAN in Half a Day provides enough foundation to be able to navigate the technical terms used to discuss the Open RAN concept. It allows you to understand the technical architecture and principles of O-RAN as specified by the O-RAN Alliance.

Note: This course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.

PREREQUISITES

Basic system-level knowledge of LTE/4G and 5G recommended but not required.

What is Open RAN and Why?

  • Traditional “non-open” RANs
  • What is the meaning of an “Open” RAN?
  • Which are the technical and business drivers for Open RAN?
  • Who is the O-RAN Alliance and how does it relate to 3GPP?

O-RAN Architecture and Principles

  • O-RAN Overall Logical Architecture
  • Some useful definitions: O-CU, O-DU and O-RU
  • Non-real time and Near-real time control loops

The Management Layer

  • What needs to be managed in a RAN?
  • 5G QoS framework: PDU Sessions and QoS Flows
  • Service Management and Orchestration (SMO)
  • Non-RT RIC (RAN Intelligent Controller) and rApps
  • Near-RT RIC, xApps and Policies
  • AI and ML basics
  • The A1 and O1 interfaces

The gNB and its Interfaces

  • Higher vs Lower Layer split of the gNB
  • 3GPP interfaces: F1-C, F1-U and E1
  • O-RAN interfaces: Open FH, E2, O1

The O-Cloud

  • Cloud and Virtualization basics
  • RAN Network Functions in Regional Clouds and Edge Clouds
  • The O2 interface
  • Open RAN challenges
This course explains and discusses the reasons for Open RAN and outlines the technical architecture and principles for O-RAN. It focuses on establishing important technical concepts and terms, and on putting Open RAN into context by relating it to use cases and current technology trends.
