Akraino Radio Edge Cloud (REC) provides an appliance tuned to support the ORAN Radio Access Network Intelligent Controller (RIC) and is the first example of the Telco Appliance blueprint family which provides a reusable set of modules that will be used to create sibling blueprints for other purpose tuned appliances.
Telco Appliance - Radio Edge Cloud (REC)
Key Features and implementation
- RIC on Kubernetes on “bare metal” tuned for low latency round trip messaging between RIC and eNodeB/gNodeB
- Built from reusable components of the “Telco Appliance” blueprint family
- Automated Continuous Deployment pipeline testing the full software stack (bottom to top, from firmware up to and including application) simultaneously on chassis based extended environmental range servers and commodity datacenter servers
- Integrated with Regional Controller (Akraino Feature Project) for “zero touch” deployment of REC to edge sites
