YouTube Livestream: What is O-RAN & How to Implement It
In this session, we will talk about the open radio access network (O-RAN) technology.
We review its specifications and discuss the role of Radio Unit (RU) and Distributed Unit (DU) components in the overall architecture.
We also cover its modeling and simulation aspects and its workflow including how to generate, compress, transmit, decode and test and analyze O-RAN communications packets.
