O-RAN Concept, Architecture, and Implementation in 5G Open RAN

You’ll learn about Open RAN and how to use open source software and commercially available hardware to construct 4G and 5G networks.

What you’ll learn

O-RAN Concept, Architecture, and Implementation in 5G Open RAN

  • Open RAN Concepts, Architectures, and Interfaces for Open RAN
  • Open Radio Access Network Specifications and Components.
  • Using open-source technologies, we will create a new 4G/5G radio air interface.
  • Using open-source tools, they created the UE New Radio Air Interface for 4G/5G.
  • Build the EPC/5GC Network core for 4G/5G using open-source technologies.
  • Observing the characteristics of the 4G/5G network in practice
  • 5G private networks will use the unlicensed spectrum.
  • 4G/5G network prototyping with SDR (e.g., USRPs) and off-the-shelf computing equipment
  • The essential elements of private 4G/5G networks
  • The distinctions between 5G and previous generations of wireless cellular phones

Requirements

  • There are no restrictions.

Description

Private Networks and Open RAN (O-RAN, ORAN)

You will mostly study two things in this course:

1) Develop a thorough understanding of Open RAN concepts, topologies, interfaces, and details.

2/Learn how to create 4G and 5G networks using commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and open-source Open RAN software.

This course is for you if you want to learn how to build private 4G/5G networks or build practical and fully open telecom equipment, software programs, and end-to-end 4G/5G systems that are alternative and competitive to those produced by traditional telecom companies such as Nokia, Huawei, Samsung, Ericsson, ZTE, and others. This course will go over in-depth most of the technical parts of building end-to-end 4G and 5G systems, such as eNodeB/gNodeB, UE, and EPC/5GC.

O-RAN Concept, Architecture, and Implementation in 5G Open RAN

Private networks have evolved from lab toys to a multi-billion dollar business, according to everyone (see: here, here, and here). Open source has already exited the lab, with solutions like RedHat, OpenStack, the O-RAN Alliance, and the Telecom Infra Project gaining traction in operators’ networks throughout the world. The industry is reacting by creating open source solutions that go up the stack as the footprint of open source develops and network operators recognize the advantages of implementing open source.

The Federal Communications Commission has been pouring gasoline on the open and private network fire. The FCC has made commercially deployable CBRS spectrum accessible, which we witnessed take off in the latest auction and with the launch of Spectrum Access Systems (SASs). CBRS’ 3-tier access implies that anybody may receive a significant part of the airwaves with 25 times (or more) the strength of most Wi-Fi networks, allowing for high-quality wireless services.

As a result of these changes, I’ve changed the aim of this edition of the “Construct Your Own Network How-To” from a lab network to a commercial-grade LTE network deployment. Let’s get going.

You will get a professional certificate of completion after seeing all of the lecture videos for the course.

Who this course is for:

  • The training is open to anybody interested in learning about Open RAN and how to create private 4G and 5G networks in practice.
