Keysight Technologies in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that the company's open radio access network (O-RAN) test systems are now available on AWS Outposts.
AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a consistent hybrid experience. Vendors of radio units (O-RUs), distributed units (O-DUs), central units (O-CUs) and RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) need integrated, virtualized and cloud native systems to validate performance, establish interoperability between network elements and ensure compliance to the latest O-RAN and 3GPP specifications.
Keysight's open radio access network (RAN) architect (KORA) consists of multiple simulators working in unison to deliver a seamless solution to vendors, carriers and testers to verify the end-to-end O-RAN ecosystem infrastructure. These simulators provide an environment for accelerated development, integration and deployment, saving critical time to market for new product releases and network deployment applications.
The KORA suite that is now available via AWS Outposts brings together all the major elements for testing the evolving RAN ecosystem in one comprehensive family of test products, including RuSIM, DuSIM, CuSIM, RIC Test and LoadCore.
