O-RAN 5G Network with srsRAN

Workshop 5G Wireless Technology Workshop

The srsRAN Project provides an open-source, ORAN-native, 5G CU/DU solution to simplify OpenRAN and 5G research, development, and testing.

srsRAN supports the use of 3rd-party UEs and 5G Cores (5GCs) to create end-to-end 5G networks with ease, with the option to fully customize the implementation. A great example of this is the ability to easily deploy a network and connect COTS UEs for everything from private 5G networks to R&D for security with nothing more than a USRP and a 3rd party 5GC. Recent months have seen the addition of support for O-RAN radio units (O-RUs) in srsRAN through our new Open FrontHaul (OFH) implementation. OFH is a portable, easy-to-use library for O-RAN fronthaul with minimal third-party dependencies. This has opened up opportunities for new users, use-cases and allows new players into the O-RAN development space. To aid with making E2E testing as seamless as possible, for everything from 5G to O-RAN-centric use cases, we have authored multiple tutorials that clearly explain how to implement these networks.

In this workshop we will go through these use cases in detail, showing how to bring up these networks from start to finish. The workshop will detail and explain the necessary hardware, configurations, and steps to connect devices to the srsRAN gNB to create seamless E2E 5G and O-RAN networks. We will also provide an update on the current project status and a development roadmap for the coming releases.
