Everything you need to know about Open RAN - and maybe more: our tutorial paper is now available on IEEExplore
It provides a deep dive of the O-RAN specifications, describing its architecture, design principles, the O-RAN interfaces, and how the O-RAN RAN Intelligent Controllers (RICs) can be used to effectively control and manage 3GPP-defined RANs. It also explores innovations and challenges of O-RAN networks, including the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) workflows that the architecture and interfaces enable, security, and standardization issues. Finally, it reviews experimental research platforms that can be used to design and test O-RAN networks, along with recent research results, and outlines future directions for O-RAN development.
