Overview Presentation

The O-RAN Software Community (SC) is a collaboration between the O-RAN ALLIANCE and Linux Foundation with the mission to support the creation of software for the Radio Access Network (RAN). The RAN is the next challenge for the open source community. The O-RAN SC plans to leverage other LF network projects, while addressing the challenges in performance, scale, and 3GPP alignment.

The telecom industry is experiencing a profound transformation and 5G is expected to radically change how we live, work, and play. This means it’s critical to make network infrastructure commercially available as quickly as possible to ensure business success for operators. It’s time to turn to open source, as it is one of the most efficient ways to accelerate product development in a collaborative and cost-efficient way.

The O-RAN Software Community is focused on aligning with the O-RAN ALLIANCE’s open architecture and specifications to achieve a solution that can be utilized for industry deployment. As a new open source community under the Linux Foundation, the O-RAN SC is sponsored by the O-RAN ALLIANCE, and will enable the development of open source software enabling modular, open, intelligent, efficient, and agile disaggregated radio access networks.
