Radio Edge Cloud

Akraino’s Radio Edge Cloud (REC) provides an appliance tuned to support the Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) and O-RAN Software Community (O-RAN-SC) Radio Access Network Intelligent Controller (RIC) and is the first example of a blueprint in the Telco Appliance blueprint family. The TA blueprint family provides a reusable set of modules that will be used to create sibling blueprints for other purpose tuned appliances.

Key Features:
  • 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 (CD) 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
