Test, validation and integration services are provided by Auray O-RAN Testing and Integration Centre (OTIC) and Security Lab. In the first successful certification of an O-RAN radio unit (O-RU), Auray OTIC relied on the integrated solution for O-RU conformance testing by Rohde & Schwarz and VIAVI.
A combined testbed was used for Auray OTIC and Security Lab. This included the VIAVI TM500 O-RU Tester and the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator (VSG), R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer and Vector Signal Explorer (R&S VSE) software from Rohde & Schwarz, with the O-RU Test Manager from VIAVI as single point of control Rohde & Schwarz and VIAVI Solutions, Inc. announced their support to Auray OTIC and Security Lab in Taiwan for this certification.
All approved Open Testing and Integration Centers (OTIC) worldwide cooperate with the O-RAN ALLIANCE in the O-RAN Certification and Badging Program. Opening the network architecture can foster innovation, accommodate individual needs and enhance network efficiency.
