Artiza Networks, Inc. (President: Naoyuki Tokonami, Headquarters: Tachikawa-shi, Tokyo (TSE Code : 6778)) is pleased to announce that it is participating in the "O-RAN ALLIANCE", which promotes the development of specifications for an interoperable and open wireless access network, and its sub-working group, TIFG (Test & Integration Focus Group), and has started standardization activities regarding test methodologies and evaluation methods for O-RAN devices.
O-RAN ALLIANCE was founded in Germany in August 2018 and now has more than 270 members, including global telecom operators, vendors, and research and academic institutions with the aim of promoting open and interoperable virtualized mobile networks. By defining the O-RAN architecture and interfaces between devices, it aims to build an open and interoperable ecosystem by providing complementary support for the specifications defined by 3GPP and other standardization bodies.
Artiza Networks has supported the O-RAN specification since the initial version of their 5G base station test system (DuoSIM-5G), which was released in 2018 ahead of the rest of the world, and have been providing it to the world's most advanced telecom operators and equipment vendors. As the need for interoperability testing using the interfaces between devices defined by O-RAN is expected to increase in the future, we will actively support the standardization activities of this organization based on our extensive knowledge of O-RAN-based device evaluation.
