RAN on OTC - Using the Telekom OpenStack platform for Radio Access Network virtualization

A future mobile network architecture requires flexibility, adaptability and programmability to deliver services of expected quality. Radio Access Network (RAN) is a technology that connects individual devices to other parts of a network via radio links. The presentation shows how we virtualized RAN software components using container technology from a decentralized hardware based platform into the Open Telekom Cloud. Thus, a flexible, resilient and scalable ecosystem has been created to perform further research on topics including network traffic performance. The demo session will show the concept and how to use the application in the OpenStack environment.

What can I expect to learn?

The participants learn which possibilities there are to virtualize radio access network software components, using container technologies and how these can be operated flexibly and scalably with an open stack ecosystem. It also shows which influences affect performance.
